Dr. Gary Glassman The Endodontic Restorative Continuum: A Blueprint for Success
Speaker: Dr. Gary Glassman
It has been well established that the success of endodontic treatment is dependent on both the quality of the endodontic treatment and the quality and timing of its subsequent restoration. The synergism between endodontic and restorative treatment is considered particularly beneficial to the integrity of the tooth and its long term survival. When high-quality endodontic and restorative treatment is achieved, successful long-term outcomes are possible.

Howard Farran, DDS, MBA Uncomplicate Business - Advice For the Next Generation of Dentists
Speaker: Howard Farran, DDS, MBA
Now that I’m over 50 I can certainly share some things I have learned over the years. There’s still plenty of stuff I don’t know but I do know dentistry and the business of dentistry. I’ve been practicing dentistry since 1987 when many of you were pooping in your diapers while I was drilling and filling. Pretty soon we’ll trade places but in the meantime I’d love to share some advice on starting out, debt and taking a smarter path with money.

Speaker: Dr. Martin Trope and Dr. Kenneth Serota
This article is an overview of the essentials that accept that the endorestorative continuum is not a concept. Rather, it is a de facto treatment approach. “Clean, shape and pack,” with hindsight, should have been “shape, clean and pack”—but even that was a somewhat simplistic approach. Debridement, disinfection and microstructural replication due to the introduction of adaptive bioceramic technologies for root filling are increasingly being recognized as the standard for optimal endodontic ther

Speaker: Dr. Samir Karimov
Indirect posterior composite restorations have brought about a wonderful age where ideal form, marginal adaption, and proximal contact and contour are all achievable goals.

The use of post-cure heat, however, has remained ineffective in enhancing the clinical performance of these restorations. As new curing techniques and technologies develop, indirect posterior composite restorations continue to see improvement and promise, both in their mechanical characteristics and the longevity of

Boyana Byanova, DMD The Clinical Algorithms of Rehabilitation
Speaker: Boyana Byanova, DMD
Contemporary aesthetic dentistry has been catalyzed by the adhesion era. The ability to use tooth-colored direct and indirect resins and ceramic-based materials was fully realized as dentin and enamel adhesives were developed and their clinical performance optimized. It may appear that adhesion is a simplistic procedure— a film with which to coat the tooth. In reality, the multifactorial interplay of chemicals with the diverse molecular structures of dentin and enamel and the reconstructive resi

Brent Engelberg, DDS Quick, Conservative and Highly Esthetic Treatment Planning for Severe Anterior Tooth Wear
Speaker: Brent Engelberg, DDS
Severe tooth wear can lead to functional and esthetic complications. For young patients who desire a quick, conservative, and highly esthetic treatment plan, alternatives to orthodontics and invasive restorations are necessary. Using occlusal equilibration, very thin lithium disilicate veneers, and composite resin, this case presentation demonstrates a logical treatment plan that works well to ensure proper function, occlusion, and restoration of the patient’s esthetics.

Invasive cervical resorption clinically references an uncommon destructive and aggressive form of external tooth resorption. Diagnostically, external cervical invasive resorption (ECIR) lesions may appear as crestal or subgingival decay, or in erupting teeth as invasive coronal resorption, or even apically as invasive radicular resorption.

Despite the odontoclastic nature of this pathosis, in many instances, there is no need to do root-canal therapy. This course is designed to acquaint th
