"I just want it to look natural" is a common phrase that we hear constantly in the dental practice while we try to ease the many fears that surround dentistry, but what does natural truly mean? To some it means a solid white, monolithic tooth, while to others it means that no one could ever tell a restoration was done. Let's explore how we meet these demands from communication to tips and tricks you can take to your practice to create that natural smile.

Learning outcomes

Speaker

Dr Kristine Aadland

Dr Kristine opened her first practice during the longest economic downturn since World War II. Was there magic in her approach? Not at all. She is a technology geek who is dental phobic, so she combined the best technology available with a patient-first approach and grew her practice into what it is today. Kris’s practice has a digital technology flow that honors patient’s busy schedules and has brought exponential growth to her business. She began to lecture when she discovered that very few women stood behind the podium. 'Become the change you want to see' has become a personal mantra for her as she encourages other women to engage in the educational side of dentistry. Kris most often lectures on digital technology, but one of her favorite educational courses is live patient training. This training combines high technology workflows with doctors creating same day smiles for those in need. Never a dry eye at the end of the day, she found a way to combine her love of this industry into an educational format that empowers doctors and changes the lives of those we serve. Although most days you can find her either in her practice or on a stage, you can also find her at Titanium Winery in the Napa Valley. Co-owned with her fiancé, Dr Justin Moody, their first vintage will hit the market in 2025. Their hope is that you will enjoy it with loved ones and create lifetime memories.
