Cosmetic Dentist in San Diego Returns From Case Presentation Lectures

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - Dr. James Salazar recently returned to his center for cosmetic dentistry in San Diego following attendance at the SPEAR Education Case Presentation lecture. The seminar series was titled "The Art of Treatment Planning and Case Presentation" and was held at the SPEAR campus in Scottsdale, AZ. Having observed various techniques for improving doctor-patient communication within the consultation, Dr. Salazar says he is now eager to employ these strategies at his practice for enhancing the quality of patient care he can provide in procedures ranging from routine cleanings to porcelain veneers in San Diego.

SPEAR Education is a team of educators motivated to providing dentists with courses, lectures, and workshops that promote innovative strategies and clinical excellence. The recent course attended by Dr. Salazar presented attendees with a software to help organize different cases for potential patients. Thanks to unique, step-by-step walkthroughs shown at the seminar, the San Diego dentist says he was able to take away a fresh approach to assisting patients in their search for the best dental care.

At his practice, Mission Trails Dentistry, Dr. James Salazar and his partner Dr. Bradley Ross focus on a wide variety of treatments ranging from teeth whitening to Invisalign in San Diego. Dr. Salazar says he is eager to apply the skills and techniques learned at the SPEAR Education seminar and hopes his patients will benefit from having a greater understanding of the procedures and results they can expect. He says the before and after photos of cases that have been done in the past will also prove invaluable in his consultations, as he continues to pursue the best possible care for his patients.

Looking forward, Dr. Salazar says he hopes to attend future events with SPEAR Education, as well as other continuing education courses, in an attempt to hone his skills and improve the quality of results he is able to achieve. Because modern dental techniques and technologies are constantly evolving, he says he encourages patients to seek treatment from a dentist who regularly attends events like the Case Presentation course so as to ensure they receive the most up-to-date care available. Dr. Salazar says he is excited to be a part of the burgeoning industry and looks forward to the advancements in patient care that will emerge over the next few years.
