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.

Love the thin milled CAD/CAM margin when there is adequate enamel on the cervical margins.  My presentation at Dentsply Sirona World 2017 was about aesthetic emotional closure and finishing the thin feather margin with the CEREC system.  This video will cover my parameters and finishing technique.

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

Chairside zirconia restoration...getting better every month. ZirCAD LT, multi infiltration effect, and polished. Chairside zirconia provides a complete portfolio for restoring posterior teeth.

I do appreciate the all-zirconia restorations and provide quite a number of them as a treatment option in my clinical theater.  The primary benefit of the all zirconia restoration for me is the conservative crown prep and biomechanical “muscle” material behavior.  In the next year, we will find an abundance of new brands and translucency options being introduced to the market.  We will need to decipher recommended prep style and reductionRead more

We are looking forward to sharing our upcoming series called “Leadership in the Clinical Theater”.  Our learning model will be me with Jordan, my German Shepard.  Jordan is one of the best dogs I have every had.  He came to our home fully trained as a protection dog, alpha off the charts.
