Are Consumers and Technology Driving the Future of Dentistry?

Join Dr. Miguel Stanley to explore how consumer expectations and digital dentistry, along with the sharing economy of our profession, are shaping the future of dentistry. Through his unique story, Miguel will share his philosophies on the global community of dentistry, dental artistry versus profit and how dentistry is changing lives.

Creator of No Half Smiles® philosophy and the Slow Dentistry® concept, Dr. Stanley is passionate about ethics and quality in dentistry and loves to share his vision with the younger future generations of dentists. He is also host of the first National Geographic documentary on dentistry.
The Generational Shift: 5 Things Dentists Need to Know About the Changing Dental Patient

Demographic shifts in the U.S. population are bringing major changes to how consumers view dental care and dentists. Similarly, there are important generational shifts happening on dentists' side as well, with millennial dentists facing very different practice realities than baby boomer dentists. This presentation by the ADA's chief economist and health policy guru will bring you the latest and greatest data showing the shifting paradigm young dentists are going to grapple with in their practice careers.

Dr. Vujicic is chief economist and vice president of the ADA's Health Policy Institute, where he is responsible for overseeing all policy research activities. Prior to joining the ADA, he was with The World Bank, where he directed the global health workforce policy program.
