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.

Simplifying Isolation and Bonding Protocols for Indirect Restorations
Presenter: Dr. Devin McClintock
Sponsor: Bisco
CE Credits: 1 CEU (Self-Study)
View Full Description »
Advancements in technology and materials have shifted the field of dentistry. Providers opt to rely more on chemical adhesion over mechanical retention with their indirect restorations. This paradigm shift of preparation design to a more conservative approach is dependent on an equal shift in our bonding protocols. The road to reliability in adhesive dentistry is paved through consistency and reliance on adhering to science. Developing systems and protocols and sticking to them ensures long term stability with indirect restorations. Which in turn results in happy patients with reliable outcomes. But how does one develop the proper systems and protocols? In this CE webinar, providers will learn how to simplify yet optimize their isolation techniques and bonding protocols to achieve more predictable long-term success with their indirect restorative outcomes. In addition to establishing consistent bonding protocols for single unit delivery cases, providers will be able scale these bonding techniques for any unit delivery.
