Bioactive materials have been advancing patient care for over a decade, yet many clinicians are unaware of the positive impact they can provide to daily patient outcomes, keeping the materials in a "Golden Box" only to be used in special situations. Bioactive dental materials are indicated and appropriate to use in most restorative scenarios. When used properly, they ensure quality, long lasting restorations for our patients. This CE webinar invites you to rethink your caries management practices by combining patient centricity and practice efficiency for a patient-practice win-win.

As Dr. Frazer says, "There are things that took me years to learn as a pediatric dentist, and I would have been so much better off knowing these things from day one.” This webinar serves as a resource for clinicians seeking to advance their pediatric dentistry skills and provide the highest level of care to their youngest patients. It will offer practical and actionable guidance that you can implement into your clinical practice. Attendees can expect to gain knowledge on optimizing product choices and techniques, enhancing bedside manner, prioritizing self-care, addressing parental concerns, and utilizing "smart"/bioactive products to support oral development while avoiding burnout.







Bioactive Crown Cementation
Presenter: Dr. Les Rykiss
CE Supporter: Pulpdent
Release Date: 8/23/23
Expiration Date: 8/23/26
CE Credits: 1 CEU (Self-Study)
View Full Description »
True bioactivity in relation to cementation in today’s dentistry is incredibly advantageous. It allows the dentist to have comfort in the knowledge that the crown margin will not be the weak link in cementation. Bioactivity enhances the stability of the restoration by forming hydroxyapatite crystals at the restorative margin, minimizing the chance of microleakage and decreasing the risk of sensitivity. This CE webinar will examine the characteristics of bioactive cements and indications for its usage.







Ergonomics and Efficiency: The Dynamic Duo for Better Productivity!
Presenter: Stephanie Botts, RDH, BSDH, CEAS

The dental profession is at high risk for musculoskeletal disorders (MSD), with up to 96% of practitioners reporting pain due to clinical work habits. This is due to repetitive movements, bending, twisting, reaching, incorrect operator and patient positioning, and performing repetitive movements in a static posture. These habits not only compromise the health of the dental clinician but also reduces efficiency and production. Ergonomics is the science of fitting the working environment to the practitioner, instead of forcing one's body to acclimate to the environment. Proper ergonomics can increase productivity and efficiency, decrease pain, and lengthen one's career. Allowing the individual to practice pain-free, ergonomics can increase the quality of one's life and work satisfaction. At the conclusion of this CE webinar, participants will learn ergonomic techniques, proper positioning, and product choices to allow them to practice pain-free while also increasing efficiency and productivity.

Historically, dental materials have been designed to be passive. They are considered successful if they do not interact with or harm the surrounding tissue. Thus, these materials are deemed to be biocompatible. In recent years, with the development of bioactive materials with impressive capabilities, this has started to change. A shift in thinking and a desire to do better for our patients has given rise to the era of bioactive dental materials. Bioactive materials are by design, interactive with a patient’s tooth structure and help to stimulate and mimic the remineralization process that takes place in nature. This CE webinar will review the science behind bioactive dental materials as well as practical uses for bioactive dental materials in everyday practice.







Are Your Patients “Out of Balance”?
Presenter: Dr. John Comisi

View Full Description »
Life has become more stressful and challenging, especially during the pandemic. When we find time to care for ourselves, we don’t always make optimal decisions. This includes important choices related to diet, nutrition, and oral health. Yet, each time we eat, the balance of the oral cavity can shift, allowing opportunistic pathogens to become activated and destructive. The result is an oral environment that is “out of balance.” How can we as dental professionals respond to these circumstances and stop this disease process? Fortunately, there are specific and highly effective oral health strategies that you can use to restore balance. In this webinar, Dr. John Comisi will help you understand the disease process and how to end the frustrating treatment cycle of “one step forward, two steps back.” He will also look at beneficial procedures and materials we can we use to arrest this disease process—and possibly even reverse it.

The integration of medicine and dentistry is an exciting development in modern healthcare. While medical-dental integration was once a dream among healthcare visionaries, it is now a tangible reality. This is due in large part to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has accelerated change and made many Americans aware of the oral-systemic link for the first time. In this educational CE webinar, Crystal Spring, RDH, an expert in access-to-care issues, will look at how dental professionals can be a part of this historical medical-dental transition.
