With the ever-changing face of dentistry, the standard of care for the replacement of missing teeth involves the use of dental implants. Restoration of the maxillary edentulous patient with implants is often more challenging than the mandibular arch due to anatomic, biomechanical, and esthetic considerations. Integrating implants into your practice is essential to staying up to date with the latest treatment options for patients. This CE webinar will provide the clinician with a framework to begin the successful integration of maxillary overdenture treatment options into your

This individualized model puts the doctor-patient relationship in the driver seat rather than insurance and/or reactive care.
In 2021 it will be more important than ever to focus on improving the patient experience. In the new COVID-19 world patients rightfully expect increased communications, clear direction, no-touch services, and access to technology that simplifies their dental experience and makes them feel safe. In this CE webinar you will learn how to meet and exceed these demands through the use of technology and automation. Mastering the skills below will make you, your team, and your patients safer and happier while also improving case acceptance and retention.
The traditional current model in dentistry, influenced primarily by third party payers, offers only a “reactive” approach to restorative care. Most if not all conservative minimally & non-invasive treatment options are typically not “covered” expenses; and when they are, they are reimbursed at a rate that makes them unrealistic. In this CE webinar a more “proactive” approach will be presented to better serve the patient population and to enhance the practices ability to operate more independently and profitably without the interference of third parties.

It would be difficult to find another technique in dentistry that has as much evidence as sealants to prevent and arrest dental caries. But is placing a sealant an ultra-simple procedure that doesn’t require much skill or precision? If your sealants seem more like custom fitted plaque traps than highly effective decay prevention, don’t miss this opportunity to re-think your sealing materials and techniques.

Hand hygiene in accordance with CDC Guidelines and OSHA Standards will be addressed, as well as appropriate methods and motivation techniques to enhance compliance and ensure a safe dental visit for all.
Well over 500 prescription and non-prescription medications have xerostomic side effects, which are compounded when these medications are used concomitantly, as is often the case for our medically complex patients. In addition, little attention is sometimes given to those systemic diseases which contribute to the development of xerostomia, and the exacerbation of its complications. This CE webinar will provide participants with an overview of xerostomia, medications used in its management and the impact of both the disease and its treatment on dental therapy. Special emphasis will be given to vaping and the use of cannabis and their effects on producing and/or exacerbating dry mouth.

Simplifying adhesion to enamel, dentin and various types of ceramics so you can be confident when you are starting your next case.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, OSHA has been enforcing compliance with the Respiratory Protection and other safety standards in dental practices. Non-compliance with OSHA requirements can be costly to a practice in the event of an inspection – especially an unannounced inspection. This CE webinar will review checklists of OSHA requirements for training, documentation, hazard assessments and more to assist practices in practicing safely and being prepared in an inspector walked in the office. The webinar will also focus on public health protocols and resources that will help practices to be informed and prepared for future outbreaks of infectious disease.
The post-endodontics restoration of teeth (after RCT) has structural, biological, chemical, and physical considerations. Much of current education, and literature, remains based on ‘traditional’ dental approaches, including cements and metal posts. Today the practitioner is faced with a bewildering array of adhesives, structural support (post alternatives) and chemical combinations – all before we get to the part that the patient is most concerned with: the esthetics of the final restoration. This CE webinar will help practitioners better understand the alternative materials that are available and their limitations; select and use the right materials / chemistries to achieve complete polymerization, even at the most apical end of the prep; and techniques that result in a final build-up virtually free of shrinkage, that prevents bacterial ingress and provides a sound structural base for the most esthetic final restoration. Dr. Fanica and Dr. Enachescu bring years of endodontic therapy and extensive knowledge of materials to help make post-endo restorative treatment straight forward and successful.
The opportunities for 3D printing, scanning and integration into dental office systems is expanding at an alarming rate.
