Morristown, NJ — New Jersey cosmetic dentist Dr. Edward Romano recently completed an educational course on direct composite bonding as a way to improve his technique in providing an effective, yet affordable procedure for enhancing patients’ smiles. Following attendance at the 2012 Annual Meeting for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), Dr. Romano says he has dedicated a significant portion of his practice to staying up-to-date with the latest procedures and technology as modern dentistry continues to progress and evolve. He says patients will ultimately benefit from selecting a dentist who places a high premium on continuing their education in procedures such as porcelain veneers or dental implants.
Offering a wide range of procedures at his center for cosmetic, sedation, and general dentistry in New Jersey, Dr. Romano says the course he attended on direct bonding offered him the unique opportunity to gain invaluable hands-on experience creating composite dental bonding, a skill he says has helped him become a better dentist when it comes to overall smile design. He says increasing his knowledge and honing his skills in performing a variety of different procedures allows him to offer patients several alternatives for restoring the radiance and structure of their teeth.
“The biggest reason for keeping up with my continued education is to stay abreast of what’s current so I can offer my patients the most up-to-date techniques, better results, longer-lasting restorations, and also improve my own artistic flair for creating beautiful smiles,” says Dr. Romano.
For patients interested in a treatment such as Invisalign in New Jersey, Dr. Romano says knowing the right questions to ask during an initial consultation can help them find the right dentist for their needs. He encourages patients to be upfront with their hesitations and concerns by inquiring about what courses their dentist has taken recently, what the best thing he or she has learned in the past six months, and how it has helped improve his or her practice. Dr. Romano also says if patients are really unsure about a dentist’s credentials, asking for printouts of what he or she has attended recently can help put their mind at ease: “Don’t be afraid to ask what courses your dentist has taken recently. A good dentist should be able to give you a direct answer to all your questions,” he says.
Whether patients are looking for a routine cleaning or a complete smile makeover, Dr. Romano says keeping up with continued education is the duty of a good dentist. He urges all patients to consult with an experienced and qualified practice before undergoing any dental procedure. Through partnership with a dedicated practice, Dr. Romano says patients will be able to achieve the safest and most effective results possible for their smile.
