This CE webinar will address hand hygiene in accordance with CDC recommendations to decrease the occupational risk for disease transmission via contaminated hands in the dental setting. Appropriate methods and motivation techniques to enhance compliance will be discussed.
Adhesion must be created correctly. Our ability to diagnose and treat the needs of different dental substrates is crucial to optimizing clinical outcomes. Instituting adhesive protocols that address clinical challenges will enhance oral health. This CE webinar reviews new adhesive products and techniques in an effort to improve our treatment outcomes. This webinar will look at a brief history of adhesion, talk about current universal adhesives and apply those concepts into clinical situations.

Throughout my career I have been intentionally exposed to a variety of standards in infection control or lack there of that was neither in my control nor to my liking. This practice is no different today in that the day-to-day perspective of infection control is subjective to the individual making the decisions. This CE webinar is a small sample of what I have encountered and collected from the dental teams I interact with and what they understand to be true in their policies and what their role is in infection control, patient care and safety.
In this CE webinar, you will learn a quick and easy method for uncovering the most common evidence-based risk factors that affect your adult patients. Using ADA findings and recommendations, you will discover that a majority of your patients are likely to benefit from a risk reduction strategy including varnish. We will also discuss overcoming the main barriers for treatment; treatment time involved, cost to the patient, poor insurance coverage and lack of practice philosophy. When everyone puts risk assessment into action your patients and practice will be healthier and you will be their partner in health.
In this CE webinar, Dr. Hoos will discuss a conservative concept for restoring teeth that is economical for the patient and profitable for the dentist at the same time.
