Looking forward to sharing time with my CAD/CAM colleagues.

Title of Presentation: Primescan in the Functional and Aesthetic Clinical Theater

Primescan elevates the clinician's use of the digital platform for more than restorative procedures.  This course will suggest clinical applications and templates from digital record collection, appliances, and the single tooth to comprehensive restorative care.

Thanks to the San Diego Ivoclar and Patterson Team.  Enjoyed my time presenting digital diagnostic and treatment applications using the most current digital platforms.  Amazing how the digital dental world will elevate our batting score in the clinical theater from diagnostics through treatment care.

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.

The Christmas season is a special time for the Klim family.  We head north to Spokane, Washington to visit the relatives and play in the snow.  It is also a time of reflection and gratitude for the blessings in life.  Thank you to so many for making our year at the Klim Institute such a blessing. Special thanks to Ron Livingston for sharing his musical talents (Spokane, Washington).

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.

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
