Lecture Description

Computerized occlusal analysis can give us valuable information that may have an impact on the long term success and stability of our dentistry. Knowledge of the precise timing of occlusal contacts and the relative force level of occlusal contacts enables us to develop an occlusal scheme with optimal properties for natural teeth and dental implants, and to monitor this occlusion with objective measurements over time. Digital impression overlays can further enhance the precision of this process

Educational Objectives

To learn to manage the occlusion with greater accuracy using computerized occlusal analysis.


Pamela G. Doray, DMD, MSEd, FAGD, AAACD

Over the past three decades, Dr. Doray has established a reputation nationally as a leading cosmetic and reconstructive dentist in the Philadelphia area. She is Philadelphia’s only AACD Accredited dentist. She is a Fellow with the Academy of General Dentistry and she has been regularly selected by her peers as one of Philadelphia Magazine’s “Top Dentists”.

Since 1984 Dr. Doray has maintained a private practice devoted to comprehensive reconstructive, cosmetic and implant dentistry in center city Philadelphia. Her practice is known for excellent personalized patient service, a commitment to the highest quality of treatment, and state-of-the-art technology.

Dr. Doray graduated first in her class from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dental Medicine. Prior to dental school, she graduated summa cum laude from Bucknell University, majoring in Mathematics. She also received her MSEd degree in Measurement, Evaluation and Techniques of Experimental Research from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Doray has always been actively involved in teaching, research and consulting on various aspects of cosmetic and implant dentistry allowing her to offer the best state-of-the-art care to her patients.

Always on the forefront of state-of-the-art technology, Dr. Doray was one of the first dentists in the Philadelphia region to place bonded porcelain restorations, and to implement networked digital radiography, cosmetic imaging capabilities, laser whitening procedures and digital scanning for porcelain restorations and implant restorations.

In 2008, Dr. Doray was awarded the prestigious Fellowship Award from the Academy of General Dentistry. Fellowship is awarded to only a small percentage of dentists in the nation and is one of the most recognizable designations within the dental profession. Recipients of this award understand that great smiles and good oral health are the result of going above and beyond basic requirements and pursuing a higher level of continuing education.

Dr. Doray is also proud to be an Accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. AACD Accreditation serves as the Gold Standard for Excellence in Cosmetic Dentistry.
