How many times have you started to clean your patients’ teeth and discovered severe bleeding, heavy biofilm, or worse recurrent decay? Using the assessment phase as a guide will enable us to formulate a dental hygiene diagnosis, develop a treatment plan, select interventions, and evaluate our progress. In this CE webinar, we will discuss the benefits of completing the assessment phase of ADPIE. We will emphasize the critical role a complete medical history, periodontal exam, radiographs, and biofilm assessment play in your patients' oral health. As dental hygienists, we have the power to motivate, enhance and elevate our patient care and it all starts with a complete assessment!

More than ever, dentists are looking for predictable and efficient methods to deliver exceptional restorations. Our restoration checklist includes: sealed margins, functional occlusion, accurate inter-proximal contacts, while offering beautiful esthetics. However, central to every restoration is the bur that is selected to perform a specific role during the procedure. Whether removing decay, finishing a composite, establishing a margin, or adjusting a pristine ceramic surface, dental burs answer to a broad scope of restorative procedures. This CE webinar will discuss proper bur selection from start to finish for everyday clinical dentistry.

Local anesthetics are very safe drugs. However, they do sometimes, rarely, exhibit side effects. Practitioners inject thousands of dental cartridges every year and usually do not think about those potential issues. When they occur, we may be unprepared and unaware of what to do. This CE webinar will discuss the side effects and potential emergency situations that are associated with both local anesthetics and vasoconstrictors. As well, ways to mitigate these situations will be presented. Specifically, local anesthetic allergy, toxicity and cardiovascular emergencies will be explored.

Dentistry is challenging and stressful, but definitively working with the pediatric patient potentially can take all our energy and effort. This CE webinar will present the current, state-of-the-art, of the most contemporary techniques for behavioral management with the pediatric patient in the dental chair. All, nonpharmacological and pharmacological alternatives will be discussed in detail. The use of well-known techniques like "tell-show-do" will be re-introduced to the audience. The correct use of nitrous oxide and the indications (and contraindications) will be also presented with time to have a discussion of the critical "tips" for the successful use of nitrous oxide.

Featured Podcast Episodes
Series: Bisco CE Credits: 0.25
Guest: Dr. Todd Snyder
Many of us rely on ceramic materials for our indirect restorations. And with today's choices, we need to be aware of how we handle these materials before cementation. We also need to understand the differences between ceramic and zirconia and how we prepare these materials prior to cementation. To tell us all about it and share some invaluable clinical tips is our guest Dr. Todd Snyder. Dr Snyder is a popular speaker on Viva Learning.com, a cosmetic dentist, international author, lecturer and consultant to dental companies. He hosts a weekly podcast, Delusional: Winning the Weekly War of Dentistry. You can reach Dr. Snyder at: www.Legion.Dentist.

Series: Bisco CE Credits: 0.25
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.

Series: GC America CE Credits: 0.5
