This webinar looks at the use of composite resin materials to increase the chances of post-endodontic treatment success. The flexibility and adhesive properties of modern composites in creating an effective seal at the coronal end of the endodontic treatment and in protecting the remaining tooth structure will be discussed.
This CE webinar will focus on newer hydrophilic impression materials along with other tissue management tools to demonstrate techniques that can be implemented to simplify the process of capturing the ideal impression regardless of the number of teeth involved.
This CE webinar will look at the current options for bonding and cementation of indirect restorations. With so many choices today it can be confusing. Simple decision points will be presented to know when to use conventional cementation or a true bonding protocol. We will also look at the current choices in materials and which clinical situations they are best for.
Saliva is an important ally to a health oral environment. Without it, the teeth would just simply dissolve away over time.

Don’t you just want to pummel a punching bag when you hear about practices doing over a million dollars a year per doctor? While your production numbers remain frozen on some primeval plateau month after month, theirs keep whizzing past on their way to practice primetime. What’s wrong with this picture? No matter how it may look, reaching the next level is not a matter of luck. Learn the real reasons of why practice’s level off and how to increase your numbers.
Regardless of what CAD/CAM device you have the key to success is what you do with it after you buy it. In order to integrate the technology into your practice successfully you and your staff have to be able to communicate the value of it to patients, which will not only differentiate your practice but also elevate the quality of care you offer. In this CE webinar, learn how to create a CAD/CAM office where patients value the technology and tooth conservation.
Join us for an interactive, LIVE Q&A session with Dr. Molinari and Peri Nelson! In this 2 hour CE webinar, attendees will learn the key points of infection control in the following areas: iInstrument reprocessing, washer/disinfectors, sterilization monitoring and sterilizers, and waterline treatment.
Today’s direct restorative materials have vastly improved physical properties and uses that can significantly improve the restorations we place today. They also enable us to perform more minimally invasive procedures since following the “rules” set up by G.V. Black for cavity preparation are not readily needed when using today’s high tech direct placement materials. However, we must still fully understand the benefits and drawbacks of even these superior materials: where they are called for, what they can do to benefit the restorative process and where they can fail.
Are you experiencing too many cancellations and openings in the schedule? New patients have declined? The challenging economy presents an opportunity for dental teams to realign their energy on improving weak and broken practice systems. Doing the same thing, the same old way doesn’t give you the same results in today’s economy. It gives you less than the same results. Learn five strategies to help you reach your true potential.
From anesthetizing a single tooth to the entire quadrant, what techniques and agents can be used to achieve pulpal anesthesia in the mandible? This CE webinar will review the specific techniques, from simple infiltrations through Inferior Alveolar, Gow-Gates, and Vazirani-Akinosi blocks, and discuss their success rates and recommendations for selection of anesthetic agents based upon the currently available evidence.
In past webinars, Dr. Moe Razavi has reviewed the benefits of using the palate as the source of anchorage for en masseretraction of the maxillary anterior teeth. The Unitek™ Temporary Anchorage Device System, combined with the custom designed TransPalatal Arch (TPA), can not only be used to control the final position of the maxillary incisor teeth, but can also allow for control of almost every tooth in the mouth. In this segment, Dr. Razavi reviews treatment mechanics for anterior-posterior (AP) correction through molar distalization in both the maxillary and mandibular arches using a combined TPA/TAD system anchored in the palate.
Our reputation as clinical dentists in delivering esthetic and restorative dentistry is directly dependent upon adhesion. Whether, direct or indirect, adhesion is the foundation for the success of long-term restorations. Individual substrates require a customized protocol for success. From materials to protocols this CE webinar simplifies the components of successful adhesion.
Part of the Alvetro Practice Management Series
Do you struggle with goals, budgeting, or management in your office? Ineffective strategic planning can limit practice success. In this webinar, Dr. Lisa Alvetro poses the question, "If you don’t know where you are going, how do you get there?" Dr. Alvetro shares the systematic process that she and her team utilize to identify goals, define practice direction and allocate resources.
As amalgam alloys are phased down, it is likely that composite resins will gain in popularity as the direct restorative material of choice. We will review the techniques of placement and discuss how these modern materials can be used to produce a strong and reliable restoration in a similar working time to that of amalgam.
Have you heard patient exchanges similar to the following: “Mr. Collins would you like to schedule that crown appointment now?” “No, I’ll give you a call when I’m ready.” Or maybe the typical exchange is more like this: “Hello Carol, this is Marlene from Dr. Thomas’s office. Will you be able to make your appointment Tuesday?” “No, I’m sorry, I have a conflict. I’ll let you know when my schedule frees up.” You may hear variations on all of the above, but one thing will be consistent – the negative impact each exchange has on the profitability of your practice. Learn the best scripts that use the best words, phrases and questions to prompt patients to respond the way you want.
Part of the Alvetro Practice Management Series
Although the number of new patients is an important metric for an orthodontic practice, focusing on this alone can overlook many opportunities for growth and improvement. Learn techniques to make your practice the best it can be by using Dr. Lisa Alvetro's approach to scheduling, staffing and organizational management.
From anesthetizing a single tooth to the entire quadrant, what techniques and agents can be used to achieve quality anesthesia in the maxilla? This CE webinar will review the specific techniques, from simple infiltrations to intraligamentary (PDL) and intraosseous techniques, through regional blocks such as the infraorbital, AMSA, and ASA, and complete maxillary division nerve blocks. Recommendations for selection of anesthetic agents based upon the currently available evidence will also be discussed.
Rolling eyes, snide comments, poor attitudes, staff conflict bubbles to the surface in many different and often subtle ways. It’s easy to ignore these undercurrents of discontent and pretend they don’t really affect you. Look the other direction and maybe the problem will just drift away. Such wishful thinking is certainly comforting until reality kicks: lost productivity, absenteeism, increased cancellations, lower treatment acceptance, costly mistakes, etc. Learn 8 steps to conquer conflict and get back on track.
Continuing his exploration of the Unitek™ Temporary Anchorage Device System, Dr. Moe Razavi describes the use of indirect anchorage to protract posterior dental segments in both the maxillary and mandibular arches. Specifically, he presents how to utilize a combined TransPalatal Arch (TPA) / TAD system to protract maxillary posterior segments in canine substitution cases, as well as protraction of mandibular molars using indirect anchorage to close the space of congenitally missing second premolar teeth.
All day, every day in the dental practice, teams are looking for signs.; signs of tooth decay, signs of infection, signs that it’s going to be a calm day or a hectic day. They look for signs that the schedule is going to blow open a great big hole because Mrs. Jones is 15-minutes late for her crown prep. They are so focused on monitoring the signs of the day they seldom take time to consider that those daily struggles, frustrations, and challenges are vital signs that key practice systems are struggling. Do your practice’s vital signs indicate healthy or sickly systems? Find out in this
