Dr. Mitchell Josephs to offer free dental seminar Friday July 22, 2022

Palm Beach dentist Dr. Mitchell Josephs really enjoys talking about dentistry. 

To his patients. 

To his staff. 

To his fellow practitioners.

And especially to his guests during his popular free public seminars — the next one of which, “Teeth for Life XXIII,” is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Friday at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Palm Beach Gardens. 

“We’re going to cover everything people need to know about how to choose the right dental office for their specific needs,” says Josephs, who keeps the mood light, interactive and fun. 

“I’ve done standup comedy at local clubs in the past, and this is just another fun and informative way to put a mic in my hand,” he notes with a laugh. 

Among the topics Josephs plans to cover: 

  • How porcelain veneers can transform your smile.
  • His unique no-cut dental implant surgical technique that yields faster and more comfortable post-procedure healing.
  • Digital X-rays, which minimize the patient’s exposure to radiation.
  • The use of an intra-oral camera, which finds current and potential future problems that standard X-rays simply cannot detect.
  • A simplified approach to the often-complex work of full-mouth crown and implant reconstruction.
  • Explanation of why the so-called “teeth in a day” approach to dental work can be very risky.
  • Why you should beware of TV commercials and internet advice for dentistry.
  • Digital impressions with a unique device called iTero: It eliminates the “gagging goop” that dentists have used for decades.
  • Painless high-tech shots containing electronic anesthesia, which is an advancement of traditional local anesthetics.
  • The proper approach to securing loose dentures with special implant attachments.
  • Alternatives to crowns to preserve healthy tooth structure.
