The 3 W's of Direct Restorative Dentistry

WHAT to use,  WHEN to use it  and WHY!   

(available with products hands on interactive workshop or both)


There are more options available then ever before on how to treat and directly restore a tooth.

This course will show you why the “one size fits all approach” to direct restorative dentistry MAY NOT be the best approach. All restorative dentistry starts with an accurate diagnosis. Choosing the correct restorative materials (enamel and dentin replacements) for the patients’ type and state of disease may lead to better outcomes and longer lasting dentistry.

In this course you will learn the following:

1. Using the latest technologies to accurately diagnose decay before “the explorer stick”.

2. Minimally invasive to maximum intervention dentistry require selecting different restorative materials.  Which material or materials for which clinical scenario?  There may be more than one right answer!

3. Where do “bioactive” or “smart” restorative materials fit in? Why the bonding agent, base and restorative material should be selected based on the patient needs or clinical environment.

4. Bulk Filling vs. Layering technique for composite placement - Maybe the science does not “back up” the beliefs.

5. Achieving good and predictable Class II contacts.  We should not be placing composite with “amalgam armamentarium”.


GPS To Get You To Your High Tech Dental Practice?

The goal of this lecture is to give dentists and their staff the information to succeed in integrating the latest high tech dental products and software into their practices. You will learn about state of the art diagnostics, CBCT, Intraoral scanning. CAD/CAM and 3D Printing along with easy and predictable anesthesia delivery, minimally invasive dentistry, maximizing the Internet and social media, lasers and much more.

These easy to implement and affordable concepts will enable you to provide better diagnosis and treatment to your patients. This will reduce stress on you and your patients while increasing the productivity of your practice.  High Tech Dentistry makes dentistry enjoyable again!



  •   You cannot treat what you have not diagnosed
  •    Digital Radiography and 3D Imaging is not just for specialists.
  •    Intra Oral Scanners -digital impressions are now
  •    CAD/CAM and 3D Printing is the future of dentistry
  •    Oral Cancer detection is “YOUR RESPONSIBILITY”
  •    Computer Controlled Anesthesia – No missed blocks!
  •    Minimally Invasive Dentistry and Bioactive restorative products
  •    Lasers – Light changes the way you do things
  •    Internet communications – no longer just a web pages
  •    Social Media- is it right for your office?
  •    Electric handpieces, Curing lights and other small items make dentistry easier.
  •    New Materials and Techniques – because not all new technology beeps


Nothing stays the same and that includes dentistry. I don’t start any procedure the way I was taught in dental school. . Join the revolution of high tech dentistry.


You Cannot Treat What You Don’t Diagnose and Then What Do You Do!

(available with hands on)

Minimally invasive dentistry (MID) is the new buzzword but what it really means is state of the art diagnosis with the use of all current modalities to treat the disease. Minimally invasive techniques lead to improved quality of care. The hands on course will expose you to the state of the art caries detection systems, identifying oral cancer and the up to date concepts on what to do with the diagnostic information. The concepts are easy to understand and deploy in your practice.

Some of the topics to be covered include:

  • Digital radiography and imaging
  • Technology to improve caries diagnosis
  • Therapeutics and reversing the caries process
  • How to predictably eliminate white spots
  • Oral Cancer detection is your responsibility


21st Century Caries Detection - Sharpening Our Diagnostic Abilities  
(available with hands on)

Learn the latest advances in caries detection. How the use of fluorescence can improve caries detection and removal. What is the latest and future in caries detection?

The latest imaging software to enhance caries detection:

  1. Why an explorer may no longer be necessary.
  2. Learn the benefits of enhanced caries detection.
  3. How magnification and illumination improve caries detection.
  4. Which new products can be incorporated into new caries detection, removal and caries reversal?

State of the Art Diagnostics and the Virtual Digital Exam

Using state of the art diagnostics the examination appointment can be made as stress free as possible for the patient, while giving the dentist the information necessary to make an accurate diagnosis. This lecture will show the dentist and staff the benefits of a virtual examination and the devices used to acquire the diagnostics: Digital Radiography with both phosphor plates and sensors; Digital Images from both intra and extra oral cameras; ConeBeam Imaging; Oral Cancer Detection Devices and Caries Detection Devices.

The learning objectives

a.    How a virtual examination will make your physical examination more comprehensive

b.     Learn what is needed to do a virtual examination

c.     Digital Radiography –Understand the difference between Sensors and Phosphor Plates

d.     Advantages of intra and extra oral photography with a DSLR or Point and Shoot camera

e.     Understand why magnification and illumination should be the standard of care

f.      Learn the differences between enhanced caries detection devices

g.     How to save a life with enhanced oral cancer detection devices 


Curing Composites Is More Than Shining A Light

Curing composite is not as simple as it seems. A lot of physics goes into the mechanisms for proper curing. This course will give dentists and hygienists the information necessary to determine the proper use of a curing light in different clinical situations. Why your old curing light might not be curing composite as well as you think. Learn about the different types of curing lights. Determine which curing lights are best for your practice. What you should look for when purchasing a new LED curing light. Learn when to change the amount of curing based on type and color of composites. You will now better understand what is happening when you turn your curing light on.


21st Century Restoratives - What Is New In Restorative Dentistry

Learn about the latest trend in restorative dentistry- Self Adhesive, zirconia bonding and glass ionomers! How the benefits of these new materials can enhance your dentistry while saving you time.

  1. What self-adhesive composites mean for dentistry.
  2. What materials are available?
  3. Which procedures are self-adhesives indicated for?
  4. How you can bond to zirconia?
  5. How minimal invasive dentistry and glass ionomers go together


Computer Controlled Local Anesthesia Delivery Systems (CCLAD) 

How the use of CCLAD systems improve the delivery of local anesthesia. Compare and contrast the different products on the market.  Why CCLAD systems give more predictable and faster local anesthesia.

The learning objectives include:

  1. What are the benefits of a CCLAD device?
  2. Learn different anesthesia techniques including the AMSA and PSMA
  3. See who simple a PDL injection can be
