"Photography for me is different than some other facets of dentistry. It has a power that is unspoken and transformative. With just a visual image, you can change the mind-set of a patient and elicit emotion from both the subject and the photographer. It is art. It is dynamic. It is simple. It is complex. It is powerful." Amanda Seay, DDS, FAACD, FAGD

The white coat has its roots in the Arabic word ‘qamiç’, meaning a tunic, a long, white linen underrobe worn by priests during the celebration of divine offices, but also in the Greek word ‘kámasos’, a square-shaped, sleeveless garment made of cotton, linen, or silk. The ancient Romans used it as an undergarment and adopted the Hellenic name. The first ones were beige, then they took on various colors depending on the activity of professionals and artists. However, the first person to wear a white coat was not a doctor.
How to “jump” in a full-mouth rehabilitation? Are we ready to leave the comfort zone of the “single tooth dentistry”? It is a different world… If we decide to do it. So many questions to be answered… How can we convince the patient to accept a more global rehabilitation? How can we plan the sequences of the appointments without remakes and waste of time? How can we guide the laboratory technician in developing a customized full-mouth project? Can we do first a reversible test drive of the project? The 3STEP has the answers to all these questions. The 3STEP is a non-invasive functional and esthetic stabilization of the mouth.

Prevention has historically been limited to oral hygiene and not as frequently addressed with the condition of the entire dentition. When we practice in this manner, we are perceived as a commodity, and there is little to differentiate ourselves or our expertise. However, when we approach our patients in a comprehensive manner, our critical thinking is enhanced. We now start to look beyond restorative solutions. Considering other disciplines often leads to more predictable outcomes.
Dental practice has never been more interesting, and the field of tooth wear satisfies so many aspects of the skills we are trained to use: applying a medical diagnostic model to dentistry, design and artistry, sculpture and engineering, use of innovative technology, and the science of dental materials. It requires detective work and lateral thinking, empathy, and listening.
When, 12 years ago, Walter Devoto and Angelo Putignano started thinking of being able to somehow help the dentist in the choice of materials and in their use in repeatable and predictable techniques while respecting the individuality and abilities of single practitioners, they never thought they would reach so many dentists around the world.
