Nobody Caries This is a Core CE seminar

April 28, 2022
1:30 pm – 4:00 pm
  • Brian Novy, D.D.S.

Depriving cariogenic bacteria of sugar is the cornerstone of traditional caries management, yet the science of CAMBRA (caries management by risk assessment) takes cariology to a whole new level. If you’re still telling patients to “brush, floss, and use fluoride toothpaste” you’re going to be surprised by the myriad of treatment options available today. Streptococcus mutans has more to fear than stronger fluoride and more of it, as dentistry embraces oral healthcare.

Learning Objectives:
1) Identify risk factors leading to caries.
2) Explain the role of commensals.
3) Implement disease management in practice.
4) Safely consume a variety of candy and sugary beverages.
5) Prolong the life of restorations in all patients.

This presentation is sponsored by an unrestricted educational grant provided by GC America.

Course Number: T2218
