Dr. Klim has a passion for sharing current techniques and applications he uses in his digital clinical theater. Morning topic focus was about CEREC software applications for developing subgingival implant abutment/crown emergence to optimize soft tissue scaffolding support. Afternoon hands-on workshop provided instructional videos and practical applications for using Ivocolor stain and glaze application for restorations in the aesthetic zone.

View New Online Training CEREC Content - New Content Link. Are we able to machine thin feather margins with CEREC without chipping? Oh yes, we can! In fact, I am going to make a quality statement. We can mill a "pressable" margin with the MC XL using the EF bur system. This video will review the clinical criteria for applying a thin margin to optimize the aesthetic results.

How we think will mold our perspective and purpose in life. This video is a tribute to my dad who passed away almost two years ago. Though I miss him greatly, his attitude about life still lives on.

I have really enjoyed connecting with so many of my fellow CEREC colleagues and the incredible fellow educators in the Sirona CAD/CAM and 3D industry.  One highlight of the recent Dentsply Sirona 2017 for me was running into Dr. Daniel and Lulu Vasquez on the trade show floor.  It was fun to see where the conversation took us.  Watch the video and find out the secret to a long romantic marriage.  Love you guys…Daniel and Lulu.

So many lost homes this last week in the Santa Rosa firestorms.  The Klim office and home were both close to the fires and were located in one of the many mandatory evacuation zones.  Fortunately, both the home and office survived the fires.  Our prayers and heartfelt sadness go out to the many who lost homes (a number of our patients) and loved ones.

We thank the firefighters, law enforcement, and associated personnel for incredible work saving lives, providing leadership, and protection during this devastating ordeal. They are our heroes!

We are planning to be up and running again on Monday.

Enjoyed my presentation at Dentsply Sirona World 2017. Being such a fan and clinically implementing the Sirona CAD/CAM and Galileos systems, it is easy to share my passion for centering my practice around this incredible digital platform. However, my presentation took a twist from the digital side of dentistry and conveyed my number one passion, the emotional side of dentistry. It is about the heart...mine and the patients who spend time in my office. 

My number one focus on patient care is creating and maintaining an atmosphere of security and safety. An authentic communication style and solid belief system in why and how care isRead more
