This covers a new method of dealing with worn incisal edges, and associated lingual and facial enamel fractures on both maxillary and mandibular teeth. Appropriate resins, burs, bonding, finishing methods and advanced reconstructive applications are illustrated. This program meets the demographics of more dentate seniors with worn/eroded dentitions that we see in our practices.

Dr. Peter Walford has worked out of this mobile dental clinic for the last 30 years, after a decade of prior dental practice in Vancouver, Duncan, Tahsis, and the Comox Valley.
This mobile clinic moves between Hornby and Denman Islands, which lie near the Comox Valley, on Vancouver Island, about 100 miles north of Vancouver, British Columbia. Each island has a population of 1000 persons, and the”Dental Bus” spends half the month at each island.
At 304 square feet, it may be the smallest clinic in British Columbia. However, it effectively services these two communities and allows enjoyment of a beautiful rural lifestyle.
Dr. Walford operates a small organic farm, builds boats and runs a sailing school in his spare time. He is a graduate of McGill School of Dentistry, and a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics, CARDP. Dr. Walford has practiced for 40 years. He also has become a noted dental educator, presenting nationally at dental meetings, and mentors online study groups at the request of the BC Dental Association. He is a retired triathelete.
The interior of the bus is similar to a yacht, as boat-building is one of Dr. Walford’s hobbies. It features accents of yew, alder, yellow cedar, teak, birch and fir in a curvaceous and harmonious decor that takes full advantage of all the light and ventilation provided by the windows and doors of a bus.
