Odessa Dentist Attends Conference on Latest Findings in 3D Imaging

The Art of Dentistry Employs i-CAT Precise Cone Beam 3D Imaging System to Advance Patient Care

ODESSA, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- Dr. Robin Rutherford, a Permian Basin cosmetic dentist, has a history of commitment to continuing education that far exceeds the minimum requirements expected from a professional in his field. In the past four years, Dr. Rutherford has completed more than 400 hours of advanced study in dental implants, porcelain veneers, and other cosmetic procedures. Dr. Rutherford recently joined fellow industry professionals who gathered at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in Denver, CO for the 6th International Congress on 3D Digital Imaging.

At The Art of Dentistry, Dr. Rutherford's Midland-Odessa cosmetic dentistry practice, he uses i-CAT Precise Cone Beam 3D imaging system. This technology allows Dr. Rutherford to better visualize the entire mouth, allowing more precision and confidence when:

  • Placing and restoring dental implants
  • Performing guided surgery
  • Executing complex extractions
  • Treating endodontic cases

The movement from 2D to 3D imaging is a relatively new innovation in the field of dentistry, and conferences such as these keep dentists up to date on the latest technology and techniques. The conference covers topics ranging from:

  • The applications and benefits of using 3-D imaging
  • 3D imaging for sleep apnea, TMJ, and airway evaluation
  • Successful reimbursement strategies for billing 3D scans
  • Advances in Cone Beam 3D for Implants
  • What is the future of 3D dentistry?

Dr. Rutherford has witnessed other advantages of attending the conference as well. By coming together with other professionals in the field of cosmetic dentistry who also utilize i-CAT 3D imaging, he is able to learn how to optimize treatments using 3-D imaging while networking with other clinicians from around the world. He believes his commitment to continuing education keeps him updated with state-of-the-art developments in dentistry. This commitment to education not only benefits him as a professional, but also benefits all of the patients of The Art of Dentistry, as they can feel confident they are benefiting from the latest knowledge, techniques, and technology available.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
