Transforming Lives: What a Prosthodontist Can Do for You is a new hardcover and e-book with 24 compelling stories that describe prosthodontic treatments in patient-friendly language.

Each chapter introduces a patient with a problem — from a cracked tooth or worn dentures to failing implants or severe facial trauma — and, through more than 100 high-resolution clinical images, describes how each person's life was transformed through the skills and training of a prosthodontist.

When prosthodontists use state-of-the-art digital technology, what does that actually mean in terms of patient experiences? How do prosthodontists plan, lead, and deliver personalized and precise treatment outcomes? What is the connection between oral health and a full, rich, and satisfying life?

Perfect for your practice waiting room, patient counseling, and referral network, this book shows patients what to expect during treatment — and why it matters to choose a prosthodontist.
