Dr. Cole Johnson, of River Valley Smile Center, Completed a Biomechanics Course at the Kois Center

Dr. Cole Johnson, of River Valley Smile Center, a leading dental practice in Fort Smith, Ark., completed a course in biomechanics conducted by the Kois Center in Seattle. The River Valley Smile Center congratulates Dr. Johnson for completing three courses taught by legendary dentist and educator, Dr. John Kois. The advanced education serves to provide dental patients in the River Valley with cutting-edge service at the forefront of the profession.

The course focused on the most up-to-date research and evidence-based dentistry where Dr. Kois shared guidelines on how to assess bio mechanical risk, when to use direct and indirect restorations, when to use cohesively and adhesively retained restorations, protocols for retained restorations and why and when restorative failures occur and how to use that information to be more efficient. Dr. Johnson also learned the metrics and principles for tooth preparation and design.
