Expedited Excellence: What’s New that Can Make You Faster & Better

Part 2
April 23, 2020
1:00 pm โ€“ 3:30 pm
  • Joshua Austin, D.D.S., MAGD

As editorial director with Dental Economics magazine, I have authored the column “Pearls for Your Practice” for several years. During that time, I have had the privilege of working with most of the new products and technologies that have hit the market. During this session, we will discuss the current trends in dental materials. How have materials changed and evolved over the fast few years and how do those changes affect your procedures and your practice? Part two will focus on fixed restorations and cements.

Learning Objectives:
1) Learn a novel crown preparation technique to save time and frustration.
2) Review the current crop of cements on the market and which classes are superior.
3) Discuss when luting is an appropriate choice instead of bonding.
4) Explore many other products and items that can make your life easier and your dentistry faster.

This program is sponsored by an unrestricted educational grant provided by 3M.
