Close To Home: What Expert Marriage Advice Can Teach Us About Creating Successful, Long-Lasting Dentistry

Program Overview
Modern operative dentistry is guided by some very important principles that must be understood in order to create predictable, quality, long-lasting results. There is a plethora of restorative materials available today, and we as clinicians must be as knowledgeable as possible about each of them. We must know when to use composite, lithium disillicate, zirconia, porcelain, metal, etc., and we must know the do’s and don’ts for preparing the tooth and the chosen material. Dr. Dan Fischer will discuss a fun way to help dental professionals stay on top of the complex and ever-changing dental world by comparing the creation of quality, long-lasting dentistry with the creation of a quality long –lasting marriage. You’ll see that what can be boring becomes fun and, hence, memorable, assuring immediate and lasting impressions.

Program Objectives

  • Understand the importance direct veneers and esthetic composite restorations play in the reconstruction of anterior teeth
  • When posts should be used, and when indirect dentistry is best for the patient
  • The best techniques for direct reconstruction of severely compromised posterior teeth
  • Advancements in today's bonding and adhesive technologies
  • How to achieve profound hemostasis and maintain control throughout your procedures
  • An in-depth look and greater understanding of on-office and take-home tooth whitening, including the treatment of fluorosis
