    Ziv Simon, dmd, msc, is a diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and a fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada. He lectures and publishes on tissue reconstruction, implant dentistry, and esthetic periodontal surgery, and also maintains a private practice limited to periodontics and reconstructive surgery in Beverly Hills, Calif.

    The phrase “knowledge is power” was stated several centuries ago by the famous philosopher, Francis Bacon. Knowledge is definitely a powerful tool that, if used effectively, can lead to great achievements. This also pertains to the dental field, which is continuously evolving with advancements in every aspect of it. Today’s clinicians come across an abundance of information involving new techniques, technology, materials, and treatment modalities. At times, it seems that modern dentistry has given us tremendous knowledge but not always the means to apply it in clinical practice to address patients’ concerns.

    It also appears that clinicians who continuously educate them- selves and use established treatment protocols time and again, are able to achieve predictable and favorable outcomes. In this special issue, readers will be exposed to the very same clinicians’ work in their respective fields. The authors share their wealth of knowl- edge and let us take a glance into their everyday reality.

    By presenting effective clinical methods in a step-by-step fashion, the articles shed light on the complex nature of different procedures and offer practi- cal methods to address challenges. The authors in this issue did not spare any descriptions or relevant clinical photos to aid in comprehension of a particular technique. Consequently, one can ap- preciate their attention to detail and their commitment to share valuable information with the dental community.

    As readers and hopefully lifelong learners, I hope you will benefit from this issue and find it useful to you in your practice.
