Good oral health plays an important role in a student’s performance at school. Dental disease can distract from learning, cause students to miss school, or even lower their self-esteem. With caries being the most common chronic childhood disease in the U.S., it is crucial for us as clinicians to have strong prevention protocols in place. Fluoride varnish is an essential tool in preventive care. But what about patients who present with active caries? This CE webinar will address silver diamine fluoride (SDF) and how it stops further progression of caries lesions thus controlling the disease even if we can’t restore the tooth with drilling and filling right away.

All too often, clinicians are stuck in the same sound loop when trying to help our patients take ownership of their disease. And yet, they come back with the same issues appointment after appointment. However, by empowering patients to take control, we can see a significant positive shift in their health management. In this CE webinar, attendees will delve into the common barriers that hinder patient collaboration and discover practical strategies to overcome these challenges. They will also learn how to implement co-diagnosis, enabling patients to actively participate in their own assessment and treatment planning.

Periodontal disease affects upwards of 80% of the population, but many patients are still hesitant to consider surgical intervention, despite the well established oral and systemic health risks. The combination of dental anxiety, treatment time, cost, and fear of invasive procedures creates a challenge for both patients and clinicians. This CE webinar will provide alternative non-surgical treatment options that can help manage cases to minimize the progression of periodontal disease in hopes of managing their overall health.







Warming Trends: Injecting Innovation into Dental Composites
Presenter: Dr. Frank Milnar

Most dentists still think of composite as filling material that should be packed into boxy preps, cured in layers and used at room temperature. Today there is scientific evidence that is the wrong way to use composite. Injection molding techniques that can wrap around the preparations are possible by using heated multi-viscosity resins. You will discover the benefits and available options for various warming techniques.

Guest: Dr. Alex Vasserman
Most of us have started using zirconia as a material for our indirect restorations. We either mill it chairside or send it out to the lab to be fabricated. Either way we need to make sure that our technique is perfect when delivering it to the tooth, especially if we are working with a non-retentive prep. If we need to rely on adhesion, we have to understand the nuances of bonding zirconia to tooth structure. To tell us all about it is our guest Dr. Alex Vasserman. Dr Vasserman is a respected clinician running his own practice on the Upper East side of Manhattan.

Many of us are faced with cases where severe decay, hyposalivation, and poor plaque control may be the result of depressant, stimulant or opioid misuse. Today we'll be discussing how to recognize the clues of a substance-use disorder from a routine oral exam and talk about how we can deliver safe and effective dental care for these patients. Our guest is Dr. Ronni Brown, a leading expert on substance-use disorders and its oral effects.
