THE NEW GENERATIONS AND THE FUTURE OF DENTISTRY IN THE XXI CENTURY
Nobody in any field could know more about children than ourselves, just by the sheer number of children we follow through time.Besides our years of education, we play a key role in understanding, communicating after analyzing personalities, emotions, personal and social history, socioeconomic context, cultural and genetic baggage, behavior called Cognition which is the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through observation, thought, experience, and the senses. Our specialties also create more bonds than any other medical/ dental subspecialties.
This assumption bears a tremendous amount of responsibility, because we are dealing with new life in which we can guide and play a big part in their future health.
WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE
Events we are witnessing today (new generations, technology, communication) are effects of a cause. Today, we are reactive. What is the symptom or the problem and how we are going to deal with it. Unfortunately, Palliatives are not working because the problems with the advancement of technology, moves at much faster pace that the temporary solution we are offering. These palliatives are not self-controlled but affect directly and indirectly temporarily and/or permanently all organs and systems. For this reason, people look around for alternatives which can make more sense to them to what we are offering. We have 4 major mutating new players:
Biology- Technology- Big Data( AI) – Cognitive sciences.
We will discuss the problems and potential solutions in the wake of the XXI century.
