In the one-on-one interview, Dr. Workman shares with Dr. Neil Park about his nearly 40-year journey of working in the dental industry. Dr. Workman discusses how he transitioned from operating one dental practice to assisting more than 1,400 dentists nationwide through Heartland Dental, which is the largest dental support organization (DSO) according to Planet DDS.  

“This is an engaging interview,” said Executive Editor Dr. Park. “Dr. Workman covers a wide variety of topics ranging from his early career days to current trends developing in the industry. He shares his perspective on what it takes to become a highly successful dentist and the differences between being a solo practitioner and being affiliated with a DSO.”

The magazine also gives readers an in-depth look at BruxZir® Esthetic Solid Zirconia, which was identified by Dentistry Today as one of the Top 100 Products in 2018. This new category of dental zirconia, which made its debut in May, combines high-performance strength with lifelike translucency and has already become a popular choice among dentists including with Dr. Anamaria Muresan, who recently used the material to restore a new smile for her patient.

“BruxZir Esthetic zirconia is 74 percent stronger than lithium disilicate. This is one primary reason BruxZir Esthetic has become my material of choice for demanding anterior cases,” said Dr. Muresan. “Not to mention, it looks remarkably lifelike and gave my patient a life-changing new look just in time for his daughter’s graduation.”

Also, with the recent launch of the In-Office Solution, Chairside editors interviewed Dr. Jeffrey Sprout who, in less than a year of owning his new chairside ecosystem, has already started milling hundreds of crowns per month. In the article, “Producing 250 Crowns In-Office per Month,” Sprout provides feedback for other dentists about how his team quickly facilitates so many same-appointment restorations.

This edition of Chairside also gives clinicians helpful tips on how to attract more patients through impactful marketing and the publication shows readers how artificial intelligence is improving dentistry.

The digital version of Chairside magazine, Volume 13 – Issue 2, can be accessed anytime, anywhere, from a desktop, hand-held tablet or mobile device. It features exclusive content not found in the print publication, such as videos and clinical case photos. The print edition of the quarterly magazine is distributed to dental offices nationwide.
