Proud to Present the Wonders of Dental Implants in Dubai

Dollarphotoclub_64184840-300x225 While Dr. Wassenaar is committed to making positive impacts on the dental health of our community in Williams Lake, he’s also making impacts on a larger scale.

As an experienced implant dentist, he’s an active member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Through international organizations, he’s able to participate in global conferences to share and gain knowledge in dentistry on a global scale.

Last month, Dr. Wassenaar was invited to present his scholarly findings on dental implants at the World Congress on Dental and Oral Health 2016 in Dubai. He was excited to lead a lecture and learn from a variety of dentists all around the world.

The topics of this year’s presentations were centered on “focusing on changing disease patterns and treatment needs in dental and oral health.”

The conference was able to bring together research from Prosthodontics, Periodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons, Endodontics, Restorative Sciences, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Operative Dentistry, oral biology, and other dental and oral health fields. It combined the best of the best from every field, so dental professionals could broaden the knowledge on areas outside of their expertise.

Dr. Wassenaar’s Presentation in Dubai

Dr. Wassenaar was excited to accept the request and give a lecture on Implantology.

The premise of his lecture focused on the evolution of technology in with dental implants, and how easy it’s become to improve the lives of those suffering with tooth loss.

In their infancy, about 20 years ago, dental implants were used to improve the lives of patients, but the results weren’t exact. Longevity, esthetics, and function were compromised, because technology just wasn’t at the same level that it’s at today.

Now, we can use biotechnology to find the healthiest and most effective area to place an implant in the bone for better function and longevity. Now, we can use CBCT technology and CAD/CAM to use a precise surgical guide to place implants in a safe and quick way.

Not to mention, bone grafting has allowed dentists to make patient’s jaws more stable to receive an implant. Advancements in implant designs have also made modern implants more beautiful and realistic than ever. 

Dental implants have come a long way and opened the door for a lot of suffering patients.

Modern dental implants have offhandedly changed the face of endodonics and periodontology. It’s easy, safe, and healthier for to remove problem teeth and replace them with implants, instead of having patients suffer with dysfunctional teeth.

For prosthodontics, dental implants have become a conservative option for people with missing teeth. As science, medicine, and technology continue to progress, implant dentistry will make a positive footprint on the entire world.

These are just some of the findings that Dr. Wassenaar was proud to present to some of his international colleagues, so they, too, can see the benefits of dental implants in multiple facets of dentistry.

Covid-19 (Corona) Virus

Dear valued patients of Williams Lake Smiles,

We hope this finds all our patients and friends healthy and well as summer is supposed to be arriving! Fingers crossed that we will see some sunshine in the Cariboo soon!

Our clinic staff have been working hard through this "new normal" of COVID-19 and ensuring that our clinic is exceeding the regulations to create the most safe and comfortable environment for all our patients. In the field of dentistry, we have always been experts in infection control. Now we are establishing a modified workflow to go above and beyond in this endeavor.

We are starting to resume some scheduling of more routine procedures as well as emergency care at this time. Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions about our current protocols or would like to schedule care.

Please respect our measures we are taking to ensure physical distancing within our office. This includes completing the COVID-19 prescreening form that is emailed to you before each appointment. We are also continuing to limit our waiting room to one person at a time and having patients complete payments and scheduling in their treatment room before exiting through the side door. This allows us to prevent interaction between patients whenever possible.

You may also find that we are slightly less flexible in our available appointment times for now as we are managing these new measures. We need to consider the amount of patients within our clinic at any time as well as stagger our patient entry and exit times.

Please be patient and kind as we all adjust to this protocol that is in place for the safety of all of us.

Take a few minutes to watch and share our latest instalment of Dr Wassenaar's appearance on the television program "The Wellness Hour". This interview outlines a lot of what we are doing to make sure that our patients have the utmost confidence and comfort in visiting Williams Lake Smiles at all times.

Our first TV interview has enjoyed 860,000 views with world-wide sharing. We would love to hear your feedback.

We look forward to seeing you in our office soon.
