In the featured one-on-one interview, Editor-in-Chief and Clinical Editor Dr. Siamak Abai talks with Dr. Dean Saiki, a dentist who has integrated many digital tools and systems into his private practice in San Diego, California. Facing tough competition from corporate dental practices in his area, Dr. Saiki turned to cutting-edge technologies to differentiate his business and enhance the level of care provided to patients. Read the interview to learn how he decided which tools were most beneficial for his office.

"Chairside magazine strives to provoke new ways of thinking and help restorative dentists take their techniques and knowledge to the next level."

Also featured in the issue is an informative photo essay by Dr. Anamaria Muresan, who demonstrates the use of a new ceramo-metal restorative material from Glidewell Laboratories. Replacing an existing PFM central incisor, Dr. Muresan showcases how Obsidian® Pressed to Metal can hide darkened preparations while still matching adjacent natural dentition.

Additionally, the issue includes Dr. Abai’s reviews of new dental products and several articles from leading clinicians, including a comparative study by Dr. Michael Miller of the University of Texas School of Dentistry on the level of protection offered by sports mouthguards, a report by Dr. John Farah of The Dental Advisor on using BruxZir® Solid Zirconia and BruxZir Anterior in a full-mouth reconstruction, and an in-depth look into the development and naming of the newest restorative material from Glidewell Laboratories. Plus, in the recurring “Chairside Live” column, Dr. Abai compares two implant surgery methods to help clinicians choose between guided and freehand surgery.
