This course will evaluate the current barriers to care, identify complex factors contributing to oral health and equip the dental provider with strategies to improve patient care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Today there is scientific evidence that is the wrong way to use composite. Injection molding techniques that can wrap around the preparations are possible by using heated multi-viscosity resins. You will discover the benefits and available options for various warming techniques.

What is the occlusion on the right? How about the left? What does this mean for your patient’s oral health?

Patients come into our office with misaligned, chipped or discolored bonded restorations. However, due to social media, patients are more fearful of "drilling" on their teeth. Therefore, they become very apprehensive about treatment. It is crucial to educate and communicate to our patients and use a more conservative approach to enhancing their smile. Step one for success is to correctly align the teeth in order to have long term results with composite bonding. Step two is assessing where and how much is needed to enhance the newly positioned teeth to create a more esthetic result. Composite bonding can yield immediate results and gratifications.
