ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Mar 20, 2013) - Dr. Alfredo Gapuz, an Orlando cosmetic dentist, seeks to dramatically change the look of his patients' smiles. He and his team at Aesthetic and General Dentistry have a total of 95 years of experience in dentistry and are committed to honing their craft with continuing education classes.
Dr. Gapuz has been attending the Advanced Functional Restorative Dentistry program at the Las Vegas Institute with a focus on neuromuscular dentistry and recently completed the sixth component of the program's core curriculum on "Dynamic Team Concepts."
This three-day program, taught by Dr. Norman Thomas and instructor Sherry Blair, focused on the continued development of a successful neuromuscular dental practice. While doctors improve their individual skills in precision management of the bite and occlusion, they also work as a team. As a group, they are instructed in perfecting the skills necessary for efficient, effective communication and the delivery of the best possible dental care.
Upon completion of the Dynamic Team Concepts course, doctors are able to:
- Utilize neuromuscular equipment and materials
- Discuss the principles of Managing the Bite
- Discuss the importance of CT scans in Neuromuscular Dentistry
- Incorporate tips for running K7 scans into practice
- Understand the team's role in delivering NM orthotics using the K7
- Improve CT scan analysis skills
Participants of the course say that the program teaches how to initiate a significant change at their own practices by educating patients about their skills and oftentimes exhibiting a renewed enthusiasm for their work.
Dr. Gapuz and his team offer patients the latest dental solutions including:
- Dental implants
- Full mouth rehabilitation
- Teeth whitening
- Smile design
- Porcelain veneers
- TMD treatment
LVI's Advanced Functional Restorative Dentistry program focuses on improving occlusion function and smile aesthetics. Dr. Gapuz hopes to fine-tune his skills as a dentist through courses that examine why specific cases succeed, why others fail, and how to prevent failure before it happens. At Aesthetic and General Dentistry, Dr. Gapuz's Orlando cosmetic dentistry practice, he and his staff are committed to providing their patients with high quality care.
