General 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. Most of all, it’s about offering confidence and reassurance to patients who are often discovering for the first time that chemical and physical forces are damaging their teeth. But not all toothwear needs treatment. How then, does a clinician make the distinction, and what drives us to intervene? Does a patient believe they have a problem, and what is the distinction between physiologic and pathologic wear? Was it necessary when more conservative interdisciplinary solutions would be more appropriate? How can we combine interdisciplinary dentistry, such as orthodontics,to offer less aggressive alternatives to patients? This book will weigh all aspects of the treatment options and the motivation for managing tooth wear. Aboveall, it focus on biologic, functional, and ethical rationale with the goal of enamel conservation and protection at the forefront.

Dr. Andrea Shepperson is a highly respected dentist and educator, renowned for her expertise in managing tooth wear and interdisciplinary reconstruction of the worn dentition. Dr. Shepperson graduated from the University of Otago, New Zealand in 1984. As the owner of Shepperson Education, a dedicated teaching facility on Waiheke Island, Auckland, New Zealand she runs intensive two- and three-day events for clinicians, with a strong focus on evidence-based clinical strategies that can be implemented with clarity. With a wealth of international knowledge and networking, Dr. Shepperson engages with some of the leading dentists in the world and stays up-to-date with changing global trends and technologies in the industry. She is a mentor and alumna of the Kois Center in Seattle, USA, and a Digital Smile Design KOL. She is an Honorary Life Member of the NZ Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and a Global Ambassador for Slow Dentistry. Dr. Shepperson’s motivation is to provide novel solutions that offer life-changing outcomes for both dentists and patients. Patients who value longevity, wellness, and a true understanding of their needs seek her services, and dentists who value evidence and authenticity value her insights. As a sought-after author and speaker, Dr. Shepperson enjoys being at the forefront of dentistry. She contributes to publications, podcasts, webinars, and expert panels, and has been a contributing author to Practical Procedures In Aesthetic Dentistry.
