Dentistry has never been so exciting! The past decade has led the way to advancements that can enhance the rendering of patient care. Patients no longer have to be subjected to invasive treatments because we can now identify dental disease in its earliest stages. Practices that miss out on the opportunity to integrate these new products, technologies, and diagnostic testing will be left so far behind that it will be difficult to catch up. This CE webinar will introduce participants to the latest in dentistry. They will leave equipped with the knowledge necessary to select and integrate tools that will lead to exceptional patient care.
“Minimally-invasive dentistry” is a hot topic in dentistry. It’s very easy to talk about taking away less tooth structure, but it is more difficult to apply this concept to achieve predictable esthetic and functional results. This CE webinar aims to give clinicians the tools needed to successfully and immediately expand the use of minimally-invasive dentistry in daily practice.
Oral cancer is the only cancer in the US that has increased in prevalence each of the past eight years. There will be an estimated 51,540 cases in 2018, and due to new risk factors such as human papilloma virus (HPV), the survival rate of oral cancer has remained at about 50%. Join this CE webinar to learn why you should reevaluate the way that you look at oral cancer screening technology in your dental practice.
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.
Worldwide, an estimated 390 million people have diabetes - and that number keeps growing. This patient population has specialized needs when it comes to periodontal care. Treating diabetic patients is different than nondiabetic patients. This CE webinar provides cut-to-the-chase explanations about the interrelationship between diabetes and periodontal disease and information to empower oral healthcare providers to screen dental patients for diabetes and prediabetes, articulate scientifically-founded, key messages for patient education about this interrelationship, and better understand how poor glycemic control in a diabetic patient should influence treatment planning. This CE webinar is a must for clinicians who are still treating patients who have diabetes the same way they treat patients without diabetes.
We live in a society that is clamoring for healthier food and healthier medicine, and now that there is an increase in knowledge, current society also demands healthier dentistry. In this fast-paced CE webinar, Dr. Ruiz will present a variety of ways in which dentists can provide their patients with healthier supra-gingival, minimally invasive, biocompatible dentistry.
Direct dental restorations have changed from amalgam, gold, and a few resins used only for anterior teeth to a plethora of resins bursting into the marketplace. Now there are even more advanced resins like the newer class of “bulk injectable” with the goal of making resin restorations better, quicker and more predictable. In this CE webinar, we will discuss the history of why and how these materials are still evolving and the newest material available. Learn techniques on using the new “bulk fill” resins. Discover through clinical cases and the potential pros and cons why bulk fill resins will be necessary for your practice.
Take advantage of digital insight for more predictable implant treatment using digital CAD software for prosthetic driven implant planning and surgical guide design. In this CE webinar, we will discuss guide processes. Being able to understand software interactions between CBCT and intra-oral scanning can broaden the view when treatment planning for implant therapies. In this CE webinar, you will learn how you can use digital intraoral scans along with planning software to achieve consistent clinical insight to implant procedures
Bioactive dental materials are all the buzz. What are they? How can they be incorporated into the dental practice? Are they better? Is handling different? Are technique changes needed? Can you really get healing and repair? In this CE webinar, learn all you need to know about remineralization and regeneration with bioactive restoratives and cements.
Total-etch, self-etch, selective-etch: these methods and materials can create confusion and clinical results may suffer. In this CE webinar, we will discuss when and how to use total-etch versus self-etch dental adhesives to maximize the durability of long-term restorations and achieve predictable results. Understanding the materials available is one aspect of providing quality dental care, but knowing the steps to take can improve our results, which can hamper what works with a total-etch adhesive and what doesn't work with a self-etch adhesive. We will also discuss restorative failures, and how to identify them and the possible causes, so we can prevent similar failures in the future.
In this CE webinar, you will learn how to develop sound treatment protocols to decrease the risk of cervical caries development and deliver functional, esthetic and longitudinal Class II composite restorations using new techniques and materials.
Cosmetic dentistry is no longer a novelty as it was in the 1980’s…it is serious business. Patient expectations are growing so that you must learn to master the art and science not only in the front but the back of the mouth. Fortunately, advancements in technology and materials have allowed dentists and their teams to be on the same page with the patient to help you create extra-ordinary results that are predictable and profitable for the practice, as well as, affordable for your patients. In this CE webinar, learn about the challenges in esthetic dentistry, how to conservatively and dependably use bonding, and a highly esthetic and durable composite and bonding system that will satisfy almost every picky patient and dentist.
This CE webinar will provide clinicians an understanding of risk factors, proper diagnosis and distinguishable traits of peri-mucositis and peri-implantitis. We will compare healthy implants vs. healthy teeth and review the standard protocol for the re-care appointment and basic implant maintenance, including proper periodontal probing. Also addressed will be the use of glycine with a single unit dose product to aid in the prevention of implant disease.
For centuries opioids have been used to control pain and suffering, but at what cost to us, our families, and our dental practices? Today we recognize that the quality of the pain as well as the quantity can be better managed with non-opioid medications. This brief CE webinar will define the quality of post-operative dental pain and review the pharmacologic agents best suited to treat that pain.
This CE webinar offers clinicians the diagnostic tools to make educated decisions about which treatment has the best long term prognosis based on sound, proven protocols. The essential and critical diagnostic foundation starts with a complete and thorough examination, clinical assessment of occlusion, esthetics, and the desires of the patient.
During this CE webinar, the participant will
• Understand cultural diversity and the role it plays in the dental setting
• Review options for natural oral health products

• be able to recognize the beneficial effects of using topical antimicrobial in situations like prevention of root decay to aiding in soft tissue healing during second stage implant surgery
As dentists, our restorations are only as successful as the “glue” we use to put them in with. This CE webinar is designed to transform the way that you look at cementation and adhesive dentistry, and help you navigate the path to appropriate selection. We’ll walk through time to see what’s out there, why we use it, and when we use it. By the end of this CE webinar, the participant should be well informed of what’s out there and why.
What does today's clinician need to know about benefits and reimbursement? If your first instinct is to run screaming, we understand! Our patients are concerned with their benefits - that means we should be as well. The discussion will apply to all office and team sizes. As your practice grows the need for consistent communication becomes paramount. This CE webinar will focus on the most commonly asked questions regarding periodontal care and benefits including D4341 and D4346.
During this CE webinar, attendees will learn:
• That salivary or molecular diagnostics can assist in periodontal disease management.
• How inflammation generated from oral conditions associates with the vascular disease process as well as other systemic risks.
• That augmenting, or rebranding, a traditional reparative/restorative dental practice is possible with awareness about how oral health issues contribute to total body wellness.
• How our periodontal therapy teams are on the front lines of this movement.
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.
When it comes to making material decisions chairside, clinicians, instead of having a number of materials at their disposal for differing clinical situations, often just have one material in each category to fall back on, leaving them with the ‘I use it because I have always used it’ philosophy. Today, in order for materials to work they need to be used properly and in the correct clinical situation. This CE webinar will explore commonly confused and clinically misused classes of materials. It will give the participant a clear understanding of how and when to use the appropriate material.
