SAAAD road trip 2018 banner 850x222

The SAAAD Road Show of 2018 has a bit of a twist. In addition to just showing you some fantastic cases, we'll look at how these cases can be used to build a practice profile, drive patient interaction and ultimately grow your practice.

With the central theme of 'THE BUSINESS OF ADVANCED DENTISTRY', we want to inspire you to use your great cases to build your business.

Each evening has two excellent case study presentations. Then we explore how to:

  • Use these cases for the practice brand;
  • Ethically market and create better patient communication;
  • Generate new patients by using your best work;
  • Ultimately help you to find ways to drive your profit

What’s your number?

The modern advanced dental practitioner needs to be both clinician and CEO to be successful. In this lecture we will evaluate the systems and structures that make a dental practice profitable. Ethical marketing and patient communication needs to be understood, as well as the financial principles that forms the basis of any small business.

The aesthetic smile

Dr Strydom will be presenting a multidisciplinary case that was the winning case for the Facebook SAAAD Ivodent/Ivoclar competition.

Diagnosis and treatment strategies. A multidisciplinary approach and sequence in treating the gummy smile. From smile design to orthognathic correction.

 

riaan wolfaardt 200x247

Dr Riaan Wolfaardt

Presenting in Johannesburg

A clinical case of full mouth rehabilitation: Modern materials and techniques to solve some complex clinical headaches

This clinical case study will be supported by a multitude of procedures including bleaching, digital smile design, immediate implant placement with partial extraction therapy, as well as soft tissue development, customized impression techniques on implants and angle correcting abutments to facilitate screw retention on all placed implants.

The natural teeth were minimally prepared in enamel and all ceramics are bonded with the most current resin cements and techniques available.

 

dr henk pretorius 200x264

Dr Henk Pretorius

Presenting in Cape Town

Fixed implant supported maxillary reconstruction – Wanda, a perio case

This case takes us through the processes of record taking before reaching a diagnosis and a treatment plan: clinical and radiological examination, photography, designing oro-fascial aesthetics (ITI surgical and aesthetic risk assessment) and importantly, clear communication between the surgical, prosthodontic and laboratory team – and of course our patient! We decided on a delayed protocol: removal of all remaining maxillary teeth with placement of a full immediate upper denture – implant placement (six implants, of which the distal implants were tilted to avoid the antrum) after adequate healing – finalizing the case with a screw retained prosthesis on a PEKK framework. 

 

Dr Evert Burger 200x250

Dr Evert Burger

Presenting in Port Elizabeth

Compromised treatment plan for a full mouth rehab using only direct resin composites.

Big aesthetic and functional rehabilitation can be very costly and with more and more patients presenting with tooth wear (The modern Dental disease) alternative treatment plans needs to be utilised to slow the process down. This case is a full mouth rehabilitation, using only direct resin composites.   

 

dr sean napier 200x225

Dr Sean Napier

Presenting in Durban

Restoration of worn dentition

A 46 year old male presents with worn dentition and would like his smile restored. From opening up the occlusion with the help of diagnostic wax-up, treatment discussion and planning, to temporisation, cementation and management of the bite post operatively. We will look at every aspect of the treatment in this wear case.
