Our first Perth ITI Study Club meeting for 2020 was successfully delivered online. We received 115 registrations from not only Perth but also around the world. Thank you to everyone who attended and for providing your feedback.
During this meeting, Perth Prosthodontics’ Clinician, Dr Armand Putra presented a webinar on “Timing of Implant Placement in the Anterior Zone”, exploring the history of implant placement in the anterior zone, and the indication and contraindication of immediate placement with particular emphasis on how to ensure aesthetic success.
With the easing of restrictions on public gathering, Janice and Armand are looking forward to meeting you all in person very soon.
We will be running our Hands-on workshop- Basic Dental Photography on the 5th of August, places will
be limited. For more information please head to our upcoming CPD events page.
Perth Prosthodontics do not only treat patients. Our prosthodontists also love to support dentists in their pursuit of knowledge by sharing their knowledge at dental conferences, publish our research, educate other dental professionals through Perth Prosthodontics Education.
Earlier this year, we launched our Prosthodontic Mini-Residency Certificate Program (24 months) – Essentials in Reconstructive, Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry, consisting of 10 basic level Prosthodontics seminars. However, the unprecedented situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic had quickly escalated, leading to the decision to run Perth Prosthodontics Education via alternative online format for now. Given the circumstances, Perth Prosthodontics Education had offered two upcoming seminars via online formats at no cost to dentists.
The seminars “AuDentes® – Faster, Stronger and Instant Solution – Alternative to ALL on 4®?” and “Simple Rules for Superior Smiles” held in April and May were well received – beyond our expectation. This was also reflected in the feedback received on the seminars:
We really wish to take this opportunity to thank all participants for your support. We are greatly appreciative of all the positive feedback as we tried to support over 100 dentists being on the seminar at the same time.
Stay safe and stay tuned.
4. The Art and Science of Treatment Plan Acceptance
On October 31st, it was good to see new faces and many returning members in the final Perth ITI Study Club meeting for 2019. Attendees had the special privilege of hearing Dr Philip Tan, a registered specialist prosthodontist from Melbourne, deliver the presentation titled: “Immediate Final Arch Fixed Implant Prosthesis – Now a Reality”.
This presentation explored the evolution and challenges that comes with the changes in treatment protocols. It had also expanded on the current state of the art technology, AuDentes, with particular emphasis on patient selection and clinical appropriateness.

Perth Prosthodontic Education held an informative seminar on “All on 4 – What is the hype? Treatment plan considerations” at the Perth Prosthodontics’ South Perth practice in September 2019. The seminar was presented by the director of Perth Prosthodontics – Dr Janice Kan.
The“All on 4” treatment concept is a highly complex surgical and prosthodontic procedure that has received much attention with successful and extensive marketing. As a result, it is fast becoming a popular and sometimes the “default” treatment, both for prospective patients and clinicians. After much discussion throughout the night, it was highlighted that there is a growing concern regarding patients believing they know more than a dentist about All on 4 due to the patients research on Google. Attendees not only had a great time learning about All on 4, but it was also a fantastic opportunity to interact and catch up with their peers.
The full synopsis of the seminar can be found here.

This week you may notice a familiar face on the cover of a magazine. Our principal prosthodontist- Dr Janice Kan was selected to grace the cover of MostWA– a popular Chinese magazine in Western Australia (August 2019, Vol 33, page 12-15). The article covers some of the benefits of seeing a prosthodontist and why dental procedures should not be left to chance overseas. The article is written in both Chinese and English for their readers.
Dr Janice Kan also appeared in the renowned Vogue Australia – Cosmetics magazine (July Issue 45, page 46-47), earlier this month. In this piece readers can uncover what a prosthodontist can achieve for a patient and what sets Perth Prosthodontics apart from other practices. In August, this same article will appear in the Chinese edition of Vogue Australia – Cosmetics magazine.
With such esteem, you can be sure that the team at Perth Prosthodontics is highly skilled and will be able to find a solution for your needs. Please contact our friendly staff for more information on how we can help you bring a more beautiful smile.
