Webinar | Creative and Critical Thinking Inside a Digital Revolution

We, as a profession, are individually and collectively facing a strategic shift to our core economic, clinical, and philosophical value systems.

The digital transformation continues at a Moore’s Law pace forcing every individual dentist to navigate the balance between what we know and where we want to go. Today, creative critical thinking affects our self-esteem, judgement, chosen path, new skills, economic ROI and fuels our desire to reach our full potential for our family, staff, and patients. Dr. Dawson and the master teachers provided the foundation for every dentist to succeed professionally. Don’t think outside of your current box, just get a new expanded box. The future of dentistry has never been more exciting or challenging.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore how to capitalize on your inner creative values
  • Discuss the true definitions of digital and technology
  • Summarize why the master teachers guide your future
  • Formulate technological decisions based on your vision
  • Ascertain how to think about occlusion, TMD, pain, and prosthetics in 2020

As a teenager, Dr. Supple hit a diving board before swim practice and broke his mandible in two places. He was curious about Dentistry and after college at the University of Houston, he graduated from Tufts in 1980. Bobby did not have mentors, but rather had coaches much like his hall-of-fame swimming coaches. He received a pearl at each CE lecture he attended and adopted a coach for every discipline. Dawson was his bite coach, Piper his TM coach, Parker and Henry his pain systems coaches, Hornbrook his aesthetics coach, and Christensen coached him on the future of Dentistry. The 80s and 90s were filled with curiosity, education, clinical study clubs, and early adoption of technology like the T-Scan. In 2000, after Y2K, he focused his clinical practice on TM, Occlusion, and innovation. He has authored numerous articles, a chapter, and presentations on abfractions, force distribution patterns, and self esteem. He created the Virtual Study Club Facebook page in 2016 where 250 international dental health professionals explore ideas, introduce concepts, and share information on the latest technologies and applications.
