The Bacterial "Secret Invasion": Dentistry's Hidden Challenges and Potential Solutions
Saturday, April 13
10:45 AM - 12:15 PM
1.5 CDE Credits – DDS, DH, DA
ABOUT THE COURSE
We have, for so many years, endeavored to find ways of helping putting teeth "back together." Lights, materials and adjuncts are all available to solve this problem. But perhaps, even without best defenses and "solutions," we have been missing the secret invasion happening right under everything we do.
This session will enable participants to:
- Review current thinking on helping patients and restoring them to health.
- Discuss current frustrations when efforts fail.
- Explore new possibilities that may get us one step closer to success.
