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 this new and updated CE webinar, clinical trainer Cathy Sundvall walks you through the most up-to-date steps for successful bonding and rebonding of Incognito™ Appliance System custom lingual brackets. The webinar provides insightful tips applicable to any lingual bonding to help doctors and clinical staff improve techniques and reduce bond failures.

1. Why you should consider using a universal bonding agent
2. How you should and shouldn’t use these universal bonding agents
3. Advantages and disadvantages of the various adhesive delivery systems
This CE webinar will take you through step-by-step on making accurate Dual Phase and Putty Wash Impressions. Whether laser troughing or single and double cord techniques, labs continue to say this remains one of the greater challenges in fixed prosthetics.
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.
In this CE webinar we will examine impression techniques that do not require the use of retraction cord. Using these techniques, you can give you and your dental laboratory good impressions for predictable crown and bridge.
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.
During this fast paced CE webinar filled with plenty of easy to implement pearls, Dr. Kaminer will guide you through a simplified approach to crown and bridge.
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
