    A native of Massachusetts, Dr. Derek Bock earned his DMD in 2003 from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. He moved to Illinois, where he completed his post-graduate training in Orthodontics at the University of Illinois at Chicago, followed by a three-year residency in Orthodontics. He went on to obtain an MS in Oral Sciences and completed a one-year fellowship in Craniofacial Orthodontics, during which he received additional training in treating children with craniofacial syndromes, particularly cleft lip/palate. Since 2008, Dr. Bock has worked out of a north-suburban Chicago private practice, Forest Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry.

    Dr. Bock and his partners strive to provide exceptional care, incorporating a team approach within a positive environment that puts their young patients at ease and helps them develop a positive attitude toward dental care. Superior equipment, materials, and instrumentation play a big part in helping the doctors meet these goals, and that’s why Komet instruments have become such a vital part of the practice. Dr. Bock relies on Komet’s quality products and outstanding customer service as he develops and executes individualized treatment plans for each of his patients.

    Favorite Komet USA Product

    When considering his favorite instruments, Dr. Bock points to both established and new offerings from Komet USA: he relies on the 817.FG.065 medium-grit diamond wheel for incisal edges, and he turns to the DISCtance IPR system for interproximal adjustments. He gives high marks to Komet’s quality construction and precise tolerances that allow him to execute enamel re-contouring with ease.

    The Future of Dentistry

    “As the digital applications of orthodontics (e.g., Invisalign®, CAD/CAM orthodontics) become easier and pricing begins to align with the system delivery, the overall demand and need for orthodontics will increase.”

    A 1988 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, Dr. Thomas Bilski has been in private practice for 29 years. During that time, he has devoted himself to furthering his education, successfully expanding his expertise in a variety of dental disciplines. He currently is Co-Director of the Midwest Implant Institute (Mii) in Columbus, OH. He has published numerous clinical articles, and his is a frequent name on the lecture circuit where he educates on implant and cosmetic dentistry.
     
    In outfitting his practice for a full complement of dental services, Dr. Bilski repeatedly turns to Komet for the exceptional quality of the instruments. He also describes Komet customer service as “second to none”: every member of the support team works diligently to ensure customers receive personal attention in a timely manner.

    Favorite Komet USA Product

    While he relies on a full range of Komet instruments in his daily practice, Dr. Bilski identifies the F360™ endodontic rotary system and the DentinPost® X coated glass-fiber post as some of his favorites. For endodontic care, Dr. Bilski searched for the perfect combination of safety and simplicity, and he found it with Komet USA. He describes the instruments as exceptionally efficient, which makes cutting effortless. 
     
    The Future of Dentistry


    “Dentistry—and restorative dentistry in particular—is increasingly moving toward digital work flow. Computers will lead the way for provisional and definitive dental restorations as well as for dental-implant placement. Radiographic and virtual intraoral impressions will be the standard modality, and dental services will be easier to deliver, shortening chair time to benefit both the dentist and the patient.”

    Dr. Alan M. Atlas earned his DMD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, where he currently serves as Clinical Professor in the Department of Preventive and Restorative Sciences. As co-director of the Endodontic-Restorative Microscopy and Technology Clinic, Dr. Atlas instructs on precision restorative dentistry using the dental microscope and digital technologies. While actively involved in clinical research studies for implants and dental materials, Dr. Atlas also heads up a busy private practice in Philadelphia where he and his team provide esthetic and comprehensive restorative dentistry with an emphasis on service and quality of care.

    Dr. Atlas also serves on the editorial board of several journals, and he is an internationally recognized lecturer whose unique academic and private practice perspective focuses on applying scientific-based protocols to general and advanced clinical dentistry. Dr. Atlas has long recognized Komet’s tremendous reputation for superior diamond instruments. In his combined
    experiences—both teaching at Penn and treating patients in his practice—he’s learned first-hand
    that Komet diamonds are exceptionally well-made and effective, and he relies on them every
    day.

    Favorite Komet USA Product

    In practicing restorative and adhesive dentistry, Dr. Atlas turns to numerous Komet instruments on a regular basis, and he has worked with the company to create sequenced, step-by- step kits to facilitate a variety of techniques. He selects configurations for direct-composite preparations and finishing, which he describes as the backbone of many practices. Dr. Atlas recognizes that preparation is critical to achieving an optimal outcome, and he emphasizes the necessity of using high-quality, predictably precise instruments to ensure success.

    To achieve unmatched precision in margins, Dr. Atlas favors Komet USA’s sonic finishing handpiece and tips. He notes the importance of high-quality chairside and lab kits, particularly considering the growth of CAD-CAM ceramic restorations.

    The Future of Dentistry

    “I designed these kits because CAD-CAM restorations are becoming a significant part of our practice, so precision becomes even more important. With the CAD-CAM, preparation is key to success. If you do not have a good prep, the outcomes can fail: you cannot get a good scan or good milling if the preparation is not perfect. I design kits to sequence the preparation so the end results are optimal.”

    A native of Alberta, Canada, and a 1994 graduate of the University of Washington School of Dentistry, Dr. Timothy Hess runs a general dentistry private practice in Auburn, WA, and is a partner at reStōr Dental Implant Center and reStōr Dental Laboratory. He also holds positions as Affiliate Instructor in Restorative Dentistry and Affiliate Faculty in Oral Medicine at the UW School of Dentistry, and he is Director of the school’s R.V.

Dr. Hess also is a frequent contributor to a variety of dental journals, including Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants, and Operative Dentistry.
     
    Dr. Hess outfits his practices with the highest-quality, premium products as he strives to provide his patients with superior dental care. He relies on Komet USA’s expansive range of exceptional, high-quality instruments to deliver excellent results consistently and efficiently, and he gives high marks to that famous Komet customer service, noting the attention he receives from his company representative.
     
    Favorite Komet USA Product

    For their exceptional cutting efficiency, durability, and long service life, Deep Purple™ diamonds are Dr. Hess’ favorite Komet USA product. The crown-prep diamonds offer measurably greater substance removal in comparison to standard diamonds, and they work quickly and effectively.
     
    The Future of Dentistry

    “The future of dentistry is likely to see increased penetration of dental-service organizations as the standard of care within dentistry continues to change. This will, however, create an opportunity for the general dentist to distinguish him- or herself from the large group practice down the road.”
