Education Matters

Posted by: Kimberly Kratz

Dr. Kelly Brown, owner of Upper Bucks Dental Arts, believes in the power of education. 

 

 

Dentists are required to accumulate 35 hours of continuing education in order renew their license every 2 years. Clocking ten times that, she said, “I try to hit 200 to 300 [hours] per year.”

 

 

“I just became a Master Clinician in Implant Dentistry after completing a course in Los Angeles under world renowned implant expert Dr. Sascha Jovanovic, and I will soon finish my fellowship in orthodontics,” Dr. Brown said.

 

 

The implant course required students to complete 4 weeks of classroom study plus 150 hours of self-study in addition to tracking their own cases and presenting those. It focused on placing implants and managing the bone and tissue before, during and after placing the implant.

 

 

By having a well-rounded set of skills, Dr. Brown can complete many aspects of overall care. “As a Total Solution provider, I can keep most treatment in house. We can discuss comprehensive care to determine where we’ll be heading immediately and in next two to five years. In this way, we can predictably manage long-term care and outcome, which makes patients more comfortable.”

 

 

In addition to routine care including exams, cleanings, and fillings, Dr. Brown is proficient in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, as well as many aspects of periodontic and endodontic treatment. She also offers orthodontics including Invisalign (which many patients prefer because they are less noticeable), as well as traditional braces.

 

 

“I also focus on things that a lot of dentists don’t consider such as sleep health.” 

 

 

Grinding your teeth destroys tooth structure and damages the TMJ. What many people don’t know is that this grinding may be a consequence of sleep apnea or poor sleep health, malocclusion (when the bite is off because the teeth do not align properly), or a combination of these things. Grinding or clenching your teeth can lead to nerve pain, jaw problems, chronic headaches or migraines, etc. Identifying the source of the grinding by addressing sleep problems or properly aligning teeth can result in positive changes in the overall health of the patient. 

 

 

Dr. Brown said, “This is where my continuing education comes into play. With the right toolbox, you can really change someone’s life.”
