The diagnodent is pretty cool. I use it at work and it really cuts down on the guess work of small decay. I will use that for sure. Dentistry is getting sooooooooo easy! :clap:

Be carefull with that statement, the more and more I practice and think Ive got a really good grasp on dentistry, the more I find that i need to learn. Afterall, that's why we PRACTICE dentistry, because one day we hope we'll get it right;) :D

And BTW, as for lasers in dentistry, absolutely LOVE them:love: , couldn't imagine practicing without them today, and can't wait to see where we'll be with them in the future:clap:

I totally agree with you. What I meant by that is diagnosis is getting so easy. A small spot of decay that the explorer won't fit in will not go undiagnosed. That's all. Of course we have to keep up on all the continuing ed.;)
