Continued Education Lecture: Dr. Joseph Blaes

Last month we had the pleasure of having Dr. Joe Blaes as our speaker for our first CE lecture of the year. Dr. Blaes is passionate about teaching dentists all over the country to understand the patient’s wants before addressing their needs. Discovering the patient’s concerns at the start of the appointment helps to create the treatment plan with them rather than for them. The key is to develop a trusting relationship.

Dr. Blaes created a unique, insurance-free, fee-for-service general practice in St. Louis, Missouri, that emphasizes preventive, esthetic, reconstructive and implant dentistry. Because of his interest in new, innovative and more efficient materials and techniques, Dr. Blaes began writing a column, “Pearls for Your Practice” in Dental Economics. This column became a trusted source for maximizing dental practice efficiency. For almost two decades he was best known as the Chief Editor of Dental Economics. His lectures and hands-on programs for Dentists, Dental Assistants and Hygienists have won rave reviews around the country. In addition to memberships in many professional organizations, Dr. Blaes is a fellow of the American College of Dentists, a past President of the American Academy of Dental Practice Administration and a Founding Member of the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health.

In this lecture Dr. Blaes taught clinical procedures from start to finish, highlighting the best products, materials, technologies, and techniques that enable you to produce high-quality dentistry in the least amount of time, at a low level of stress. He demonstrated many ways that clinical dentistry can be enhanced, upgraded, simplified, done quicker, and made more fun for the entire dental team!

Thank you to our guests for attending – always making it a full house! Thank you to our speaker, Dr. Joe Blaes for a great lecture, and to our staff for making things run smoothly.
