Particular emphasis will be placed on incorporating a seamless workflow that team members can support.
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.
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.
Are you confident in how to adhere ceramic restorations to tooth structure? Want to know what steps and materials to utilize to adhere ceramic veneers, inlays, onlays, and crowns? This CE webinar will cover the various steps and materials to implement so that you can be more confident in adhering ceramic restorations of any kind in your dental office. Simplifying adhesion to enamel, dentin and various types of ceramics so you can be confident when you are starting your next case.
Composite warming techniques have been used for some time in dentistry. New advances in delivery now make this technique simpler and more predictable.

Leveraging the benefits of durable and carve-able body composite, the cavity adaptation dynamics that a flowable provides, and the benefits of warm composite have finally been made simple and easy!
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.
Once the SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 pandemic begins to wane, what does the “landscape” of a dental practice look like? How will our practices be permanently changed and what will go back to the way it was before the pandemic? This CE webinar will examine protocols that have been implemented in the delivery of oral health care that will remain as a permanent part of our “landscape”, such as respiratory protection, aerosol mitigation, screening of patients and dental team members for infectious diseases, the introduction of telemedicine into dentistry and adherence to guidelines from the CDC and other public health agencies and more.
Surface and sub-surface enamel discolorations may bring a patient into the office for esthetic treatment. Traditional treatment for these lesions could involve composite resins or ceramic veneers. More conservative options are available for removing minimal tooth structure that do not involve bonding restorative materials which need to be replaced over time. Microabrasion is a technique which removes up to 100 microns of the outer layer of enamel. Resin infiltration is a new technique which removes some of the outer layer of enamel and then infiltrates an unfilled resin into the space. This CE webinar will describe both techniques and how to use them in combination.
