On the 18th September Dr Mike travelled down to Taupo for the New Zealand Institute of Minimal Intervention Dentistry (NZIMID) Members Only Meeting.
Following the meeting on the 19th & 20th Mike returned with fresh ideas from the meeting. Guest speakers included; Dr Clarence Tam, Dr Deona Grobler-Murray and other various members (including Dr Mike).
Dr Clarence Tam spoke on new “super composites” to get great looking fillings, rebuilding to mimic what nature originally provided.
Deona Grobler-Murray then spoke about colour matching, the different ceramic onlays, veneers and crowns for fabulous long lasting restorations utilising milling to shape them.
Dr Mike presented on the use of Biodentine for deeply decayed teeth. Other various NZIMID members who presented spoke briefly on topics as varied as orthodontics, dealing with very deep decay and a new semi processed composite overlay for use in surgery.
