Mr Brix, why did you write “Fascinating all-ceramics”?
Oliver Brix: I wrote a very successful book in 2001. Since then dental lab technology has evolved dramatically. I simply wanted to keep up with the times. My main aim was to offer my views on the developments that have taken place and show my practical experiences with all-ceramics. As working with all-ceramics has become a way of life for me, I wanted to convey my fascination for this technique to the dental community.
What type of approach and work philosophy do you illustrate in your book?
Oliver Brix: My philosophy is based on all the experience I have accumulated over the past 30-odd years of working very hard in this profession. The patient always takes centre stage. The dentist-dental technician team is responsible for using the most appropriate techniques and materials with the objective of meeting all the given requirements. We do not follow one single protocol. Rather we focus on using state-of-the-art materials and proven technologies. My book shows this using various examples and methods.
