40 Years of Dentistry... A Retrospective View

Robert G. Rifkin D.D.S.


Beautiful smiles can be created and maintained by performing a pre-treatment evaluation of all of the contributing factors such as facial-skeletal form, tooth shape and position, incisal contour in relation to the adjacent and opposing teeth, lip contour and position.

Then there is the factor of organic occlusion. Does the patient have an anterior/canine guidance mechanism? Do the posterior teeth contact and interfere in lateral movements? Is there a harmful "molar guidance" present?

How do you recognize these conditions?

We are honored to welcome:

Robert G. Rifkin D.D.S.




Dr. Robert G. Rifkin practices dentistry in Beverly Hills, California, the esthetic dentistry "capital of the world," with a focus in esthetics and comprehensive perio-implant rehabilitation.

He studied occlusion with Dr. Charles Stuart and Dr. Peter K. Thomas during the 60's to 80's, then esthetics into the 90's.

As an International lecturer, Dr. Rifkin has spoken on topics such as: facial analysis, esthetics on natural teeth & implants and digital photography to enhance your practice.

Dr. Rifkin has created a high degree of case acceptance in one of the most successful practices in the U.S., and his work has been published in several peer-reviewed journals.

We can learn much from him. A 7-minute video of numerous celebrity patients of Dr. Rifkin will be shown to emphasize the importance of what he will be teaching us today.

2. A Brief History of 3D Imaging, the 3Shape Story, (working on guest speaker from 3Shape, this will be REALLY interesting), combining imaging technologies such as full color 3D scans, high definition photography and conebeam for better medicine, and where we're all headed next!
