Dental Materials Update: Living In A Metal Free World




Dentistry continues to grow through some of the most rapid and dynamic changes in techniques and technology in its history. For some 100+ years the standard restorative material changed very little and over the last few decades we have seen wholesale reinvention of dental restorations and reconstruction.

With the rate of change being so fast that dental schools have been hopelessly left out of the progression, it requires continual dedication to stay at the top of your profession.

This presentation will explore a variety of incredible new materials and procedures you want in your practice
