What is a DSD Master?

I thank you for this award . I shall do my best to live to its expectations. It is the culmination of what has to me a long journey in my quest to lift up the standard of dentistry in my country.I try to be a role model for all dentists who aspire to be practitioners in the art of dentistry. It has not been easy for me to balance the exacting requirements of my profession and my role as a daughter , a mother and a wife. It took a lot of time , shear persistent effort and sacrifice but now as I look back , I find these have all been worthwhile. Having arrived at this stage of my career I realized dentistry is an evolving profession and I must continue to learn , unlearn and relearn. My commitment to my profession is an undying one. To all those who have been my teachers and mentors , I say thank you for showing that dentistry is not a vocation but also a mean of serving my patients.

I am deeply honoured to receive this DSD Master award. I understand that I am the first Malaysian to be so honoured. But it is not possible to get it without the support of my associates and staff and the full cooperation of the DSD staff in Spain and Brazil . I am also grateful to Christian Coachman personally for his guidance and encouragement. I am happy to be part of the DSD family.

What is Digital Smile Design (DSD)

The excellence in functional and aesthetic dentistry will never be achieved by accident. It is consistently achieved by a systematic approach for diagnosis, communication, treatment planning, execution, and case maintenance.

DIGITAL SMILE DESIGN (DSD) is a multipurpose conceptual protocol which provides remarkable advantages:

✅the diagnostic abilities are facilitated through an extra-and-intra oral aesthetic and structural evaluation

✅improved communication between the team members providing a better visual perception,

✅education and motivation for patients increased effectiveness of case presentation and accordingly case acceptance

Clinical efficiency and predictability trough digital technology DSD ETHICALLY INVOLVES THE PATIENTS in the restorative or smile enhancement process, making them the co-designer of their own treatment by sharing objectives, expressing their desires and expectations with the restorative team.

The interaction between patient and dental specialist is improved by photos and videos taken at several steps of the treatment. The experiences all over the world have been tremendous. Once the restorative technical requirements are combined with the desires and emotional needs of the patient, great results will be achieved – creating a path to a natural, confident and beautiful smile.

Nowadays having a mouth free of biological and functional issues is not satisfying for demanding patients.Their desire is to own naturally beautiful smiles that harmonise with their physical characteristics and most importantly with their personalities.

DSD dentists are aware of all the contributing factors that are necessary to make patients more satisfied beyond conventional dentistry. Developing an artistic vision and a set of appropriate skills are needed in order to become a Digital Smile Designer. Each customised patient design can be clearly visualised and improved with the patients ideas.Therefore the DSD Concept allows dentists to implement these benefits for patients, creating a smile that reflects their own personality and greatly enhances the experience and the results for all.

THE WHOLE CONCEPT is based upon the analysis of the patients facial and dental proportions, utilising a predetermined series of high quality digital photographs and videos understanding the relationship between teeth, gums, lips, smile with the facial features in motion and with emotion.Digital drawings are easily made on the pictures, following a didactical equence and a digital ruler is provided to precisely communicate with the dental technician and team when designing the smile. Resulting in a clear, attractive and understandable treatment presentation for patients.The achievement of ideal aesthetic and functional results critically depends on teamwork, interdisciplinary communication and case re-evaluation.
