The common goals of designing or remodeling your office to reflect your brand, deliver a better patient experience, and improve efficiencies haven’t changed. How you approach design has. Patients are now asking about safety – are you telling them or showing them your measures? And, you have an obligation to keep a safe work environment for your team. Now more than ever that includes designing for proper ergonomics to protect your health and theirs. How do you solve for all this? In this CE webinar, join Jeff Carter, DDS and Pat Carter, IIDA of Practice Design Group as they demonstrate how a focus on safety in design can help you differentiate your practice.
Everyday dentistry requires bonding. From direct composite restorations to indirect veneers, bonding plays an important role in every clinical practice. Many dentists report that their patients are still experiencing post-operative sensitivity after treatment. Sensitivity can be contributed to the bonding technique and/or the proper treatment of the dentin surface. This CE webinar will cover possible causes for post-operative sensitivity and how to prevent it from happening.
This CE webinar will combine multiple surgical and prosthodontic procedures to help enhance the participant's knowledge in both the surgical and restorative aspects of implant overdenture therapy. The Retain It webinar series will focus on evaluation, classification, and treatment guidelines specific to a mandibular implant overdenture. This CE webinar will include diagnosis and treatment planning with a focus on dental implant and restorative attachment design, selection, and application.
Sinus augmentation is a highly viable technique to expand bone volume in the posterior maxilla and thereby expand the pool of patients that can benefit from dental implant therapy. The crestal approach to sinus augmentation has evolved over the years with the introduction of new instruments, novel bone grafting products, and specialized delivery systems to enhance the simplicity and predictability of the crestal technique. In this CE webinar, we are going to discuss various contemporary techniques for crestal sinus augmentation to include delivery of the bone graft via a unique unidose cartridge/gun system.
Dental anesthetics and pain management are routine in every dental practice. However, delivering an effective and painless injection can some times be challenging, stressful, along with schedule changing. This CE webinar will review current anesthetic agents and offer common sense approaches to easily administering dental anesthetics for a successful outcome. Go beyond what you learned in school!

The support of strong evidence-based science will be highlighted to provide the dental professional with a solid conviction to guide their decision-making in implementing best whitening practices.
The success of your treatment is based upon Diagnosis, Procedures, and Materials. With so many choices of materials, the goal is to simplify techniques and materials with an increase in efficiency. In this CE webinar, learn why varnish is a must in today's hygiene protocol and the process of preparation to the placement of both direct and Zirconium restorations.
This CE webinar will introduce the clinician to the causes of xerostomia and how to diagnose salivary gland hypofunction as well as how to conduct a salivary flow measurement exam. It will review the differences between hyposalivation and xerostomia and management considerations.
Typically local anesthetics work effectively and allow the dentist to provide "pain free" care. However, teeth that are infected are often difficult to get a profound local anesthetic effect frustrating the dentist and of course the patient. This CE webinar will review the issues associated with the causes of local anesthetic failures with a focus on infected or "hot" teeth so that extractions or endodontic treatment can be comfortably performed.
We don't often think of chemistry when we think of Dental materials but chemistry is what truly makes some products work better than others. In this CE webinar, join us as we explore some materials in day to day dentistry and gather an understanding how we can achieve better success if we use those material appropriately.
Water is a vital component of modern dentistry and water quality affects nearly every function of dental offices. Dental units supply water for most every dental procedure from routine prophies to complex restorative procedures. This CE webinar will discuss the importance of using clean and safe water, guidelines and regulations for water quality, and how to ensure continuous delivery of safe water during dental care in the era of COVID and beyond.
One of the most exciting aspects of incorporating electric handpieces into your dental practice is what it allows you to accomplish clinically. This CE webinar will help participants become more familiar with the use of electric handpieces and how they can make your restorative dentistry better and more efficient.
Our goal in fixed prosthetics should be strong, aesthetic restorations that will last our patients years. Over the past few years new materials have entered the market compelling us to make changes in the way we prepare, buildup, impression, and cement fixed restorations. In this CE webinar, join us as we review the chemistry of why these materials work and show their use clinically in routine crown and bridge procedures. The goal is to leave this CE webinar thinking "is the new better than the old."
Corporate dentistry and the reduction in insurance reimbursement has forced most of use to become more efficient. We want to provide treatments that are a great long-term service for the patient but that are efficient for the office with nearly 100% clinical success. Proper preparation and cementation techniques are undeniably related to long term restoration success and the choice of materials is more critical than ever to meet these goals for indirect restorations. Zirconia has become popular because of its clinical acceptance and performance and this CE webinar will discuss the best techniques for routine cementation and for those times when maximum adhesion is necessary.
This CE webinar will review, in a real world “wet fingered” dentist’s way, some of the techniques, materials, and key research, behind 34 years of advanced adhesive minimally invasive dentistry. It will help take your direct composites to the next level. New injection molding techniques combined with advanced adhesion techniques will be presented. A clinical review of successful, long-term clinical cases will be reviewed as well.
As patients age, so do their teeth and yes, all the problems that come with! This CE webinar will highlight specific clinical casework that applies the restorative challenges that we see all too often with these wonderful patients.
Digital workflows enhance all clinical procedures from diagnosis, to planning, to provisional prosthesis design and fabrication, and to final restorations. This CE webinar will highlight the impact of CAD/CAM technology in the practice, the restorative materials available and the digital processes in which to produce optimal quality and esthetics in a clinical setting. Innovative digital technologies along with a clinical workflow to enhance everyday practice will be shown.
