As comprehensive practitioners, we strive to deliver the very best that we can for our patients. Too many times, it seems that our best training fails to follow through to the patient committing to treatment. In this lecture, we explore the triad of progressing with our patients to treatment success. We also explore foundational knowledge as well as actual case application as we blend the concepts of communication, treatment planning and occlusion into restorative success.

Description of Speaker:
Dr. Michael Melkers is a 1994 graduate of Marquette University School of Dentistry and practices in Hanover, New Hampshire with an emphasis on comprehensive and restorative care. Dr. Melkers balances his time between private practice, teaching research and publishing, and has presented and been published around the world. Dr. Melkers is the founder of Townie Fiesta, the Nuts & Bolts Occlusion programs and is former director of Occlusion & Aesthetic Dentistry at the Pacific Northwest AEGD Residency Program. He is also the second top poster on and an administrator for the Dentaltown message boards.

Educational Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to achieve the following:
  • Communication—beginning with listening for case focus and acceptance.
  • Occlusion—bringing the pieces together for treatment success and longevity.
  • Treatment Planning—based on our patients` treatment goals that they communicate to us.

The speaker declares that neither he nor any member of his family have a financial arrangement or affiliation with any corporate organization offering financial support or grant monies for this continuing dental education program. He does declare that he does have a financial interest in educating dental professionals.

Thanks Mike for an excellent presentation. I too have taken all the "technical" courses, but you have shown the personal side and how to actually realize all that we already have learned. I am excited to apply what I have learned.
