Today's restorative dentists need to enhance their cosmetic skills in order to achieve growth and profitability in their practices. This CE webinar will demonstrate a simplified method of restoring the fractured maxillary anterior central incisor with composite resin.
Infections and outbreaks affect your staff and patients and can harm your practice’s bottom line and reputation. Consequently, it is important to develop a robust infection control plan and follow regulations.
In the first segment of a two-part CE webinar series on infection control best practices in the dental office presented by Dr. Karson Carpenter, participants will learn about:
• Cross contamination risks in dentistry and the costs associated with infections and outbreaks
• Key guidelines, rules and regulations relating to infection control
• Strategies to prevent and control infection in dental settings
• The importance of hand hygiene
Patient and industry demands are continually pushing the evolution of orthodontics with the use of aligner therapy. With new advancements in acceleration, orthodontists are now able to provide excellent aesthetic and functional results that are more predictable, reproducible and lasting. In this webinar, Dr. Malagon will show several aligner cases using AcceleDent, which delivers vibrational forces that help ensure optimal points of contact with the teeth and the aligner. This maximizes the aligner force expression, thus achieving more predictable results. Dr. Malagon shows how using AcceleDent helps create a more favorable biological response for predictable and lasting tooth movement, ultimately supercharging his aligner results.
The goal of this CE webinar is obtaining undetectable anterior and posterior composite restorations with ease, while bonding them with predictable confidence.
This webinar is for members of the Super Schulman Group only.
As a dentist, personal trainer, and fitness nutrition specialist, Dr. Geissberger brings a unique perspective to the subjects of caries, diet, and the oral environment. Through this follow-up CE webinar on the effects of an acidic oral environment, Dr. Geissberger will review several conditions commonly found in an acidic oral environment and discuss different strategies patients must employ to alter this devastating condition.
Hiring quality employees is not unlike providing quality dentistry. Dealing with problem employees is why most dentists do their best to avoid it. Both require a plan, use of the right tools and a methodical process. Learn how to improve your human resource skills.
Every day we are challenged with patients that have worn, broken or diseased anterior teeth. How will we restore them? Will they want a usual or customary result or will they be seeking something more superior? Are you giving your patients the option and do you know how to achieve the latter? Learn from the originator of the Simple, Less Simple and 3D characterized Layering system for anterior composites. An overview of the starburst bevel, matrix, various layering techniques and finishing & polishing will be discussed. With these four parameters you can achieve restorations that rival porcelain. Join us for this one hour CE webinar to see and understand composite artistry.
Despite caries risk assessment and therapeutic tools such as fluoride that have been in use for decades, dental caries remains a significant problem in many populations. The ADA Caries Classification System (ADA CCS) was published to classify all stages of caries lesions and to help discern when surgical restoration versus chemical remineralization is likely needed. Silver diamine fluoride (SDF), a unique chemotherapeutic agent used with or without glass ionomer cement (GIC), may well bridge the gap between remineralization and traditional restoration, especially in certain populations and situations. This CE webinar will review the science and proper placement of SDF and GIC restorations.
Instrument safety and efficiency are components of our decision making process when choosing endodontic nickel titanium files for clinical use. In this CE webinar, Dr. Nasseh will discuss the role that instrument design and motion play in promoting safety while generating excellent outcomes. It will specifically address the role of instrumentation motions such as rotation vs. reciprocation and will describe the best ways to optimize each motion. Additionally, the best indications for use and contraindications for each motion will be fully discussed and demonstrated. After completing the CE webinar, participants will have a better understanding of instrument design, motion, and the various techniques for optimizing safety during root canal instrumentation.
The quest for biofriendly, regenerative, durable, aesthetic restorations has come a long way in the last few years. We all seek materials that are easy to place with excellent clinical performance even when the oral environment is less than ideal. New regenerative materials not only offer clinical performance but also reduce bacterial microleakage while releasing the bio-stimulating ions calcium, phosphate, and fluoride.
Infections and outbreaks affect your staff and patients, and can harm your practice’s bottom line and reputation. Consequently, it is important to develop a robust infection control plan and follow regulations.
In the second part of a two-part CE webinar series on infection control best practices in the dental office presented by Dr. Karson Carpenter, participants will learn about:
• Infection control strategies
• The role of contaminated surfaces and equipment in pathogen transmission
• Surface disinfectant composition and its effect on surface compatibility
• Cleaning and disinfection best practices inside and outside the operatory
This CE webinar focuses on the clinical steps and documented outcomes following atraumatic restorative treatment (ART) and caries arrest measures to address unmet needs among pediatric, adolescent and adult patients. Detailed clinical techniques for expeditious caries debridement, placement of Interim Therapeutic Restorations (ITRs) and implementation of rapid remineralization protocols by members of the dental team will be presented.
In this CE webinar, the participant will learn the following
• When to attempt vital pulp therapy and when not to
• Choosing a bioactive material for direct vital pulp capping
• What the research says about the various direct pulp capping materials
This CE webinar will introduce and familiarize the dental clinician in the philosophy of biologic dentistry in the design, application, and use of new composite and ceramic technologies. These offer maximum aesthetics and function to that patient while also providing high biocompatibility in chemistry, and minimizing the exposure potential of harmful volatile compounds (e.g., BPAs) that still exist in many alternative composite restorative materials.
Your team can’t be very effective if they don’t have clear goals or know what tasks they’re expected to complete each day. Learn why job descriptions give employees the guidance they need to excel in their roles, provide accountability and reduce staff conflict.
In this CE webinar, we will go step-by-step in making durable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing crowns/bridges, while being efficient with our procedure time. Listed out, will be all of the materials, how they are used, and the manufacturer.
Owning a successful dental practice isn’t easy and comes with a variety of challenges you never anticipated. Shying away from your leadership duties can hold you back. When dentists are educated on the business aspects of managing a dental practice, their practices are more successful. Learn tips to make you a more effective and confident CEO.
You just finished a comprehensive exam on Sarah, a brand new patient you’re hoping will stay loyal to your practice. You’ve taken the time to educate this patient on all the work that needs done. Before Sarah leaves, you present her with a treatment plan that includes all your recommendations, and encourage this first-time patient to schedule as soon as possible. The problem? You never see Sarah again. Learn the best technique to keep Sarah in your practice.
Very few dentists would say they entered the field because their number one desire in life was to spend day-after-day talking to people. Even fewer would say they got into the profession because they wanted to be in charge of a dozen staff, or selling cases, or dealing with an unhappy patient now and then. Personality conflicts can metamorphous into all out wars leaving collateral damage. Learn how to maximize your personality strengths and address the weaknesses.
