Dental Motivation  , embrace into technology and life long learning 

By: Dr. Kamsiah binti Gulam Haider BDS, MDSc

Dental life is a journey like everyone else.

Dentistry can get so overwhelmed with all of the things we have to do in order to reach our goals . Some may even think that they are not “good enough” to be the dentist your patients would like to be.

One thing I know from my own life and the things I have done , from completing my basic dentistry to post-graduate in Prosthetic and Gerodontology , to Dental Implants , to Fixed-Prosthodontics , Orthodontics and short course on The Digital Smile Design treatment concept;  we only ever have this certain moment and can take one step  at a time.
 
I didn’t know at those very moment in the span of 30 years in my career what were the defining moments for me. I need time to reflect.   I wonder what life would be like if we enjoyed the journey more and just results?  Take time out to reflect to find out what is important to us and then have the courage to make changes in our profession. As for me those journeys , took me around the world to seek knowledge from various gurus .
 
To my students and future students ; life is a journey , enjoy the view (the learning process) and our final destination will eventually be there. Be kind , be humble with your knowledge and follow those plans that you have for your potential services in dentistry which can only be taken one step at a time.
 Part of the Digital Smile training and workshop is also encouragement and motivation so that students don’t give up on trying digital dentistry . It is here to stay ___ drkamsiah

DSD Official Course in Malaysia 2018. 

Dr. Kamsiah is one of the official DSD Instructors and Masters who teach the Digital Smile Design courses.

DSD Malaysia official

I would like to share my experience with Malaysian dental surgeons. In my years in practising clinical dentistry I’ve come across so many instances of patients wanting to rush the end product without a reasonable idea of what it will be. I do my best with every case and try to envision what will please dentist and patient.

From simple to complex cases — DSD is the answer

Guessing is a recipe for failure.There’s an old adage I’ve often referred to: ‘there never seems to be time to do things right, but there’s always time to re-do it’.

Now, by incorporating the digital smile design in my clinal routine,. I am able to eliminate guesswork. I can’t emphasis enough about the importance of having a ‘blueprint’ to achieve the desired result of cosmetic treatment.With digital smile design it makes so much sense .

Since attending several lectures , courses and applying the technique in all my aesthetic cases  , I finally became the first to obtain Master in DSD in Malaysia and the  first DSD Instructor in South East Asia .

Recognise the complex case, how to apply in your daily dentistry .

Precision is the hallmark of every professional dentist. The objective must be to achieve a high degree of certainty. This will also enable both the patient and the dentist to know in advance what the final outcome in advance.

When things go awry from lack of planning and from the failure to work out details before starting an actual restoration, it may shake a patient’s faith in their dentist. To some, digital smile design seems time consuming and meticulous especially in treatment planning . However this was my missing link all these years . It is the secret to having a happy patient.

The Digital Smile Design Concept (DSD) seeks to present to the world a new face of Dentistry, more human, emotional and artistic, but also more efficient and precise through digital technology, further enhancing our noble profession in society, because after all there are not many things in this life that are more important than a healthy, natural, confident and beautiful SMILE.

Overview of the course:

Complex cases are not limited to the number of units in the case. They range from single unit cases to full mouth reconstruction cases. Even straight forward cases could be complex cases. To avoid unforeseen patient and dental problems, sound treatment knowledge and treatment planning skills are essential for managing these cases. Recognizing problems beyond the dental scope and expanding your view to the entire patient is especially important for a successful treatment outcome. Participants will have the opportunity to learn how the Digital Smile Design concept helps in their daily dentistry.
