Dr. Dan Poticny is internationally known as one of the world’s leading experts on use of CAD/CAM ceramic restorative dentistry. He is co-founder for the Southwest Center for Advanced Clinical Studies, 21st Century Practice Solutions, and the “Fully Integrated Practice” which is an on-line education portal for dentists interested in advanced dental technologies and their use in the treatment of patients.
As a pioneer in the use of high-tech techniques he has made a difference in the quality of life for his patients as it relates to their oral health. Dr. Poticny knows that today’s technology can afford a patient naturally appearing dental restorations that spare as much of the natural tooth as possible often times elimating the need for crowns, which are used commonly when there is not enough supporting tooth structure for a traditional filling. Utilizing CAD/CAM technology most teeth can be treated by the removal and replacement of only the diseased portion. By using high quality ceramics many teeth can be restored to a natural appearance without the use of metal which many patients find to be undesirable. These techniques are now receiving widespread interest within the profession of dentistry. Owing to his experience he is widely recognized by his peers as a leading educator and mentor to the profession having educated thousands on a worldwide basis making him highly sought as a speaker and mentor.
