What ever happened to the plain ole posterior composite; where did it go? For the last ten years it has been lapped by all the en vogue dentistry; for example…all ceramic crowns, CAD-CAM, digital impressions, going paperless. Well in this lecture I am bringing the WOW back to the filling.
Participants will be presented a viable low cost alternative to lab or CAD/CAM restorations for the fabrication of inlays onlays, crowns in a single appointment. As an addition, some unique problem solving situations will be shown utilizing a fast set flexible die material which is integral to both the restorative process and these laboratory situations.
This CE webinar will provide a brief comparison between restoring anterior and posterior teeth with direct composites and glass ionomer materials. The presenter will discuss advantages and disadvantages of each material type as well as when is it preferable to use one or the other clinically. The EQUIA technique, which employs the latest generation of material from the world leader in glass ionomers, will be discussed. This technique extends the versatility and clinical scope of using glass ionomers for direct restorations in posterior teeth, even in occlusal stress bearing situations!
This month’s CE webinar will focus on a patient who was presented with an open bite and severe mottling. The patient wanted her teeth to be uniform in color and was pleasantly surprised when she found out that SmileSimplicity could also correct her open bite. Utilizing veneers to treat these two physiological defects fulfills both esthetic and structural purposes.The techniques demonstrated in this online course, hosted by Dr. Robert Ibsen, will show the conservative veneer solution for closing the bite and the accomplishment of beautiful color uniformity.
The average dental clinician may perform as many as 60,000 patient encounters during a career. Until recently, the relationship of communication skills to important outcomes was not well known. New communication approaches have been developed that will increase the likelihood of patient adherence to preventive and therapeutic recommendations. This CE webinar is designed to introduce the dental professional to effective communication strategies that will ultimately lead to increased patient adherence as well as to illicit positive patient behavior change.
Implant maintenance is essential to the long-term success of dental implants. Thorough removal of microbial deposits from the surface of implant components without altering the integrity of the surface requires customized protocols for professional and self care supportive therapy. Based on current scientific evidence, this webinar presents assessment and treatment strategies that facilitate successful implant maintenance therapy.
After all, dentists are not trained to be leaders. And if they tend to be fearful, mistrusting or insecure individuals, effective leadership will be all the more difficult to achieve. Few practice owners truly comprehend how to maximize the value of the people who are central to their success. For the many, many doctors seeking to improve their leadership skills and their practices, this webinar is for you to consider a few key characteristics of both effective leaders and effective teams. The bottom line is that weak, poor, or lack of leadership directly affects your staff, your patients, and most importantly, your profitability. Learn how to kick it up a notch!
The post and core has undergone many changes throughout the last few decades. Many of us were taught cast gold post and cores in dental school, only to switch to direct placed metal posts after graduation to save an appointment. To keep anterior teeth from looking gray, many switched to zirconia posts before learning they may cause root fractures due to their stiffness. Modern post and core technique features fiber reinforced resin posts with a dentin like elasticity, paired with a dual-cured nano-hybrid core build-up material.

The reality is that if the dental practice isn’t bringing more money in, the doctor/CEO cannot afford to hand more money out – no matter how “hard working and loyal” you and your colleagues might be. But that doesn’t mean you have no control over your income potential. In fact, just the opposite is true. Employees, especially the office manager and business staff, have a profound impact on the profitability of the practice and can directly improve their income potential provided they keep a laser focus on one critical area of the practice: overhead. Learn what being on the frontline means for you and the practice.
