Knowledge of the latest indirect dental materials is vital to maximizing the aesthetic and functional success of your team-created restorations. Dental materials are sometimes being brought to market and being widely used in patients without adequate science-based evidence. Dr. Adams will help you increase your understanding of the most advanced materials with the goal of making better-informed choices.
A basic knowledge of today’s all-ceramic materials is also a must for today’s assistants and hygienists, allowing them to explain, discuss, and support treatment plans presented to patients that include these advanced aesthetic options.
This full-day science-based presentation is recommended for doctors, chairside assistants, hygienists and dental technicians.
