The Ultimate Dentist- Assistant Team: The Hands-on Experience!

April 24, 2020
1:30 pm โ€“ 4:30 pm
  • Douglas Lambert, D.D.S., FACD, FASDA, ABAD
  • Edwin A. McDonald, D.D.S., FAGD, FICD

Both the dental assistant and the dentist have vital roles to play in the office and each can appreciate their contribution to the success of their practice. However, true appreciation only occurs once you have walked-the-walk. This unique workshop will offer both the dentist and the assistant a very special hands-on experience, with limited dentist-assistant team attendance. You will work together on both direct and indirect restorations including: achieving class II composite solutions utilizing contemporary matrices, universal bonding agents and low stress/low shrink resin materials. You will also learn to simplify and refine your skill set for tissue management, impressioning, fabricating an exquisite provisional and decision-making on cementation options. F17 is a pre-requisite for this workshop.

Team price includes one dentist and one dental assistant. Additional assistants can register and pay a discounted rate.

Learning Objectives:
1) Understand one another’s role in more detail through creative exercises to strengthen teamwork and lead to better clinical results.
2) Perfect each team member’s role in the restorative process for both Class II composites and single tooth crowns.
3) Evaluate and immediately utilize the materials and techniques in your daily practice.

This program is sponsored by an unrestricted educational grant provided by Weave.
