Waikato BoP Branch Lecture

10 May 2024

Hobbiton, New Zealand

Patients are often driven to seek treatment by aesthetic concerns. How do we provide solutions to meet their desires without aggressive dentistry? When can we restore it, and when is orthodontics a better option? How do we show the patient the benefit of orthodontic correction? Dr Shepperson answers these questions and outlines the communication strategies she uses to deliver conservative results.

Learn how to:

  • Use photography, digital tools and simple apps to show a patient the potential of their smile.

  • Evaluate the benefits of a more conservative approach.

  • Understand the aesthetic challenges in achieving restorative solutions for malaligned teeth.
