QDT 2015: Quintessence of Dental Technology

Editor: Sillas Duarte Jr., DDS, MS, PhD
Publisher:  Quintessence Publishing

Review Written by: jCD Editorial Review Board

This impressive publication offers a stunning visual journey of what is possible in dental esthetics, featuring cases from top dental teams from around the world. Clinical images are presented in a very artistic manner.


The subject matter is highly relevant to today’s dentistry. Step-by-step details are provided for each process and the latest products and techniques are discussed enabling readers to take clinical “pearls” back to their own offices. 

QDT 2015 is a visually outstanding publication that is sure to inspire readers to achieve great heights in the world of dental esthetics.

Although the book has many significant merits, it could have benefited from discussion of the common challenge of how dental professionals can better position themselves to provide and be appropriately compensated for the type of dentistry showcased.
This is a comprehensive work, addressing noninvasive prepless dentistry, different CAD-CAM systems, pink esthetics, and multidisciplinary approaches and laboratory steps for complicated cases, including crown and bridge as well as dentures.  

QDT 2015 is a visually outstanding publication that is sure to inspire readers to achieve great heights in the world of dental esthetics.
