Scott Malik literally wrote the first book about esthetic dentistry (Change Your Smile), and he and his partners fly all over the world, teaching students and
other dentists how to do what they do so extraordinarily well. There are simply no people any better at what they do than these guys, anywhere on earth. And that is straight from the patient's mouth.
Although modern day dental practice centres around prevention, many treatments or interventions are still needed. The majority of dental treatments are carried out to prevent or treat the two most common oral diseases which are dental caries (tooth decay) and periodontal disease (gum disease or pyorrhea). Common treatments involve the restoration of teeth as a treatment for dental caries (fillings), extraction or surgical removal of teeth which cannot be restored, scaling of teeth to treat periodontal problems and endodontic root canal treatment to treat abscessed teeth.
