Endodontics - The latest irrigation, instrumentation and obturation techniques

Fast & Cost-Efficient 


Accurate & Predictable


What’s the best way to irrigate the canal? What are the advantages of Bioceramic-based products in obturation techniques? This module will review some basic principles of cleaning, shaping, and obturation, with a look at some new and clinically proven products and techniques.

Have you ever fabricated provisional restorations with heavy or open occlusal contacts? Have you ever found it a challenge to maintain tight interproximal contacts? How much do you charge to replace temporary restorations that crack or fail? This program will present systems for the fabrication of crown & bridge temporary restorations that lead to increased productivity, and time saving procedures that provide predictable clinical results.

This teaching module will explain that PVS materials are not hydrophilic. How does this affect you and your laboratory? Know the parameters and what happens when you use flexible plastic trays and flexible PVS materials that are designed for full arch impressions. Do you need to make custom trays for every case? We will also explain how to select the ideal impression materials, bite registration materials, and alginate replacement materials.




Adhesives &


Fiber Post - A Simple Protocol

for Clinical Success


With over 50 different bonding agents on the market today spread across different placement techniques, it can be difficult to decide on which product to use, when to use it, and for what application. This program will discuss the differences between total-etch, self-etch and selective-etch placement techniques, including their pros and cons. What makes total-etch adhesives more technique-sensitive? What steps can you take to avoid post-operative sensitivity? What is the right protocol for ensuring proper enamel and dentin conditioning?

Which post? Which cement, bond and core material? Are prefabricated metal post and cast post and core passé? Is there a need to use separate cement and core materials? This presentation will show a detailed and predictable clinical technique for reliable results when using fiber posts. They are not all the same!

This presentation provides a summary on the current status of tooth whitening. Does everyone whiten the same? What can you expect from in-office whitening? Are the results the same as takehome whitening? We’ll also demonstrate a very affordable alternative for patients who cannot afford custom whitening trays, or are looking for a professional-grade alternative to OTC systems.




Universal Esthetic Composite

Anterior Matrix Solutions

Posterior Matrix Solutions

Could there be a truly universal composite that combines beauty and strength with sculptable handling? Do you currently use a separate composite for your posterior restorations and one for the anterior? Do your restorations blend seamlessly into the surrounding tooth structure? We will show you the benefits of using a nano-enhanced universal composite and the simplicity of having one composite to meet all of your esthetic restorative needs.

Do you ever experience open or loose contacts, overhangs or black triangles with your anterior restorations? Do your restorations truly reflect the natural contour of the tooth? Are you happy with your diastema closures? This presentation will explain how to efficiently and predictably achieve natural contours, contacts and emergence profile with no overhangs and minimal finishing time by simply choosing the right matrix system.

Are there times when you were surprised by a loose or open contact when you finished a Class II restoration? Do you ever see a funnel shape to your Class II composites on an x-ray? What if there was a way to achieve a tight, naturally contoured interproximal contact with your posterior composites… every time? Let us show you that the path to predictable Class II success begins with a simple and predictable matrix system.



Curing Lights

Preventative & Hygiene

Did you know that 37% of composite restorations are insufficiently cured? What is more important, wavelength or milliwatts? Learn about the different curing lights on the market today with pros and cons.

In a 15-year study, 68% of teeth treated with a dental sealant were caries-free, compared to 17% of the unsealed control group. This presentation explores both dental sealants and fluoride varnishes as important components of a preventative treatment strategy, while covering treatments for sensitivity and providing an overview of the tools available for biofilm removal and prophylaxis. Plus, interdental cleaning and specialty cleaning.
