How are White Fillings Placed?

Feb 26, 2014 Everybody likes beautiful white teeth. Did you ever wonder how a white composite filling is placed? What is involved in replacing a silver mercury/amalgam filling? Well, here is a quick step by step outline demonstrating the placement of a white filling. ISOLATION: We need to isolate the tooth with or without a rubber shield. Below you can see how some of the fillings are isolated. In some of the teeth the silver mercury or decay has already been removed. We use a clamp to separate the teeth so a tight contact can be achieved in the final restoration. EVALUATION:... Read More »

So You Want Hassle Free Teeth…

Oct 22, 2013   Cosmetic Dentistry is all the buzz! Here in Louisville, KY everybody is a Cosmetic Dentist, which is fine, but how about those patients (like myself) that really only want teeth that last, don’t break, don’t hurt, and allow me to enjoy the foods I like till the last bite! Well, I would like to take you back a few years…maybe about 40 years when my father graduated from the same dental school I did, USC in Southern California. My father had a practice that focused on restoring the function of the mouth with the best, most conservative and long lasting restorations available.... Read More »

How to select a Cosmetic Dentist

Apr 22, 2013 Cosmetic Dentistry is not a specialty. Every dentist advertises that they are a cosmetic dentist, so how do you pick a dentist to give you a beautiful, lasting smile? After all, your smile is essentially one of your most important features! You spend a lot of time researching shoes, clothing, purses, cars, you name it. All these “things” come and go, but a smile is forever. Why would you not do your due diligence when it comes to something so important? After practicing dentistry for over 15 years in both Orange County California and Louisville Kentucky, here is my... Read More »

The New Age of Dentistry – Protect Your Health

Apr 10, 2013   Your mouth is a window to your overall health... you probably heard it before, but, how serious is the link? The connection between your overal health and your oral health is deadly serious. The age of the “tooth mechanic” is over. Dentists must be aware of the severity of oral disease and how debilitating it actually is. Science has proven a close link to infections in your mouth and your overall health.

Problem Solving Dentist

Mar 18, 2013 So what does your dentist do when he is not working on teeth? Well, in the case of Ideal Dentistry it is inventing solutions – problem solving – for all industries! I have spent my entire life looking at aspects of my daily routine and improved them. That is why I have created the Dental Peace Program – rather than see the dentist with new problems every year, slowly getting worse every year, I found a solution that actually solves the problem of continuous dental breakdown. This dental peace program was created out of my necessity to not just be a... Read More »

Our Goal: Your Dental Peace

Feb 12, 2013 I am a problem solver by nature. Those of you who know me probably are aware of the fact that I invent solutions and products daily. I can’t help it, it is in my blood. Everything from swim goggles for kids that are comfortable (FrogglezGoggles) to paper towel dispensers that don’t require you to touch and contaminate the paper towel. I love solving problem. As a dentist I see problems on a daily basis. At first I focused on solving tooth problems, like most dentists. What is the best filling for the tooth? How do I design the best... Read More »

Has Dentistry Failed Kentuckians?

Jan 07, 2013 I moved from Orange County, California to Kentucky about 8 years ago and was shocked at what I saw, with regards to dentistry. Poor quality care seems to be “accepted as the norm” by most patients and dentists. If you have been reading my blogs then you know I am always pretty straight forward with my opinions. I tell it as it is – no beating around the bush. So, when I received an extra large, beautiful, glossy mailer from a large local dental chain touting that they are “the area’s most trusted name in dentistry” (how do you... Read More »
