It's Feature Friday! Today we would like to highlight Dr. Heta Bhansali. She has been a San Diego County Dental Society member since 2014. It will be her 2nd year on the R&R committee and 1st year serving on the board.

Quick Q&A with Dr. Heta Bhansali:
Why did you become a dentist?
Both my parents are dentists. Iโ€™ve seen them work hard but also enjoy life. We took vacations and they were always home for dinner time. I also like the artistic aspect of dentistry and frankly, it was a profession I knew the most about.

What is you biggest accomplishment to this date?
Moving to a new country at the age of 23 and being one of the 10 international dentists to join UCLAโ€™s program for international dentists graduating in 2013.

What did you think about your dental school experience? Do you have any advice?
I loved my time at UCLA school of dentistry. I learned a lot and I still use some of the tricks my professors taught me. My one advice would be to get as much practical experience as you can.

Dr. Bhansali we appreciate your involvement with SDCDS!

Implant Dentistry Digital Workflow with Speaker Dr. Sonia Leziy DDS, Dipl Perio, FCDS(BC), FRCD(C) !

February 3 | 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

In this CE you will explore how innovations and concept changes shape our skills and treatment planning solutions, while underscoring the importance of collaborative planning between restoring dentists, technicians, and surgical team members. Surgical concepts that will be reviewed include virtual planning and guided surgery/provisional treatment, implant placement and restoration strategies for small and large edentulous sites, and management of hard and soft tissue deficiencies. Current diagnostic guidelines and methods to monitor health, and our approaches to reduce and mitigate disease risk will be discussed.

The following learning objectives will be explored in this presentation:
*Peri-implant diseases and complications: understand, minimize and manage them.
*Recognize why digital workflows are dramatically improving accuracy and practice efficiency while reducing errors in the treatment planning phase, surgical protocols and restorative design.
*Deciding on immediate, early or delayed implant placement and restoration protocols. Recognize the pros and cons of these decisions.
*The use and fabrication of customized transitional restorative components in the hands of the periodontist or restoring clinician: Why they are important steps in guiding tissue form.
*Soft and hard tissue enhancement procedures used in surgical practice today. Recognize what the surgical team can do, but understand the limitations.
*Benefits of being involved in this lecture event: A unique opportunity to stay informed or to validate concepts, latest advancements in technique and research in implant surgery and associated periodontal concepts.

The goal is to share concepts, procedures, and experiences that shape and improve treatment for clinicians actively involved in these types of treatment.

Feature Friday! Today we would like to highlight Dr. Shapira who is on the Editorial Board and just recently released a book on January 1st, 2024. The publication is a text book on Geriatric Dentistry and Medicine calledโ€ Geriatric Dentistry. Gateway to Longevity and Life-Long Healthโ€ ( By Edra Publishing.)

Dr. Shapira has a DDS, MAGD, MA, MHA along with masters credits in Radiopharmacy and in Biochemistry. I am both a general dentist and clinical Gerontologist. I have a separate business in Geriatrics called Aging Specialists, Inc. I assist clients and their families through the transitions of aging; doing care management, counselling and work with Geriatricians in this process. He has 50 years of practice and teaching experience. Dr. Shapira is a Professor of Geriatric Medicine and Dentistry and has taught a Mastership Class for the California Academy of General Dentistry for almost 15 years. The class is on Geriatric Dentistry and Special Needs Dentistry.

He had his own dental practice for over 30 years and then worked part-time for over the last 20 years in Dentistry. Previously he worked in China for over 10 years from 2008 to 2018 gratis at the behest of the Department of State and Commerce through a non-profit agency and taught Geriatric Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry and Health Administration. IHe received the Friendship Award, Chinaโ€™s highest award for Humanitarian service in 2014, and received commendations for International service from the ADA and the Humanitarian award for service from AGD in 2010. He is most honored by these awards.

He has received 6 writing awards from the San Diego Press Club for articles published in local papers and journals on Aging. He also wrote a book for the lay audience on healthy aging called โ€œA New Wrinkle. What I learned from Older People Who Never Acted Their Age.โ€ It has been printed into a second edition in 2011.

He has a terrific wife and partner, Susan. They have been married for 46 years this May. He has 2 step-daughters, twins, and a son. He is a proud to have 6 grandchildren, 5 great-grand children and one on the way!

He is currently in the process of writing a novel about his grandmother who grew up during the late 1800โ€™s and what happened to her during WWI. It is a Historical Novel including lessons he's learned over his life. We are very happy to have him as a part of the San Diego County Dental Society.
