In 2005, Quintessence will launch a unique concept in journal publishing. Capitalizing on the superb training value of live-action video, the new quintessence digital journal will present advanced clinical procedures performed live by world-class clinicians. Each DVD will contain 3 or 4 video segments, each on a different dental-related topic (restorative, surgical, implant, etc). Available by subscription or as a single issue,
this quarterly journal offers viewers the opportunity to observe and even study the ways in which experienced practitioners manage every step—including unexpected problems—of common clinical procedures performed in real time and on actual patients. Nothing facilitates learning so well as witnessing the choices made by expert clinicians and listening as they explain the decision-making that guides them. The new qdj will introduce a new era in the way advanced clinical procedures are mastered.
