Total-etch, self-etch, selective-etch: these methods and materials can create confusion and clinical results may suffer. In this CE webinar, we will discuss when and how to use total-etch versus self-etch dental adhesives to maximize the durability of long-term restorations and achieve predictable results. Understanding the materials available is one aspect of providing quality dental care, but knowing the steps to take can improve our results, which can hamper what works with a total-etch adhesive and what doesn't work with a self-etch adhesive. We will also discuss restorative failures, and how to identify them and the possible causes, so we can prevent similar failures in the future.

Very few dentists would say they entered the field because their number one desire in life was to spend day-after-day talking to people. Even fewer would say they got into the profession because they wanted to be in charge of a dozen staff, or selling cases, or dealing with an unhappy patient now and then. Personality conflicts can metamorphous into all out wars leaving collateral damage. Learn how to maximize your personality strengths and address the weaknesses.
This CE webinar will briefly describe the advantages of digital technology for removable restorations and several workflow options that are currently available.

This workflow mirrors many of the familiar procedures and utilizes digital technology to greatly accelerate and simplify several of the clinical appointments.
In this CE webinar, Dr. Jeanette MacLean, an advocate for minimally invasive dentistry, will teach you about resin infiltration. Resin infiltration can arrest incipient carious lesions as well as improve or even completely reverse the appearance of congenital enamel defects and white spot lesions while preserving tooth structure and repairing the patient’s natural enamel.
When it comes to making material decisions chairside, clinicians, instead of having a number of materials at their disposal for differing clinical situations, often just have one material in each category to fall back on, leaving them with the ‘I use it because I have always used it’ philosophy. Today, in order for materials to work they need to be used properly and in the correct clinical situation. This CE webinar will explore commonly confused and clinically misused classes of materials. It will give the participant a clear understanding of how and when to use the appropriate material.
