View from the Chairside: Why I love Cast-Post Cores! The Sequel
In response to the many comments that were posted for the initial post Why I love Cast Post Cores and You Should Too!, Dr. Belzycki volunteered to design a follow-up presentation to further explain several of the concepts initially presented.
We at CDA Oasis are thankful for the effort that goes into designing and organizing his ideas, and for the depth of knowledge and expertise that he offers in these presentations. Dr. Belzycki’s clinical experience spans over four decades in private practice and he has agreed to share most of it with us on CDA Oasis in an effort to contribute to the profession that has occupied most of his adult life.
We sincerely hope that you take the time to watch and benefit from this and other presentations authored by Dr. Belzycki; and we are always waiting for your thoughts, feedback, suggestions, and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Until next time!
Chiraz Guessaier, CDA Oasis Manager
Dr. Belzycki’s Thoughts
First, I would like to thank all those that took the time to send comments for the Why I love Cast Post Cores and You Should Too!.
From those comments and from conversations I’ve had with other colleagues, I have come to the realization that the way we label things in dentistry, such as ‘posts’, ‘core build-up’, ‘crown’, etc., evokes different unique images in the mind of each individual dentist. Thus, when someone claims they place a post and a crown and achieve a given result that is different from my own experience, I am at a loss to know what their conceptions of those objects are; and this is vitally important to my forming a judgment based on logic.
My role here as a ‘mentor’ or ‘informal educator’, if you will, is new to me; and as such, I feel it is important for me to illustrate precisely what I mean by the different labels that I attach to my mental images and to the concepts I employ in these presentations. It is hoped that these illustrations will lend greater clarity and logic to the concepts I am presenting so that the viewer can better form a judgment about my arguments that is based on a common understanding.
