SDAGD (6 CE Lecture Units) – Restorative Options Overload?

October 6, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm


Douglas L. Lambert, DDS, FACD, FASD, FASDA, ABAD

Course Description

Aesthetics is still one of the key driving forces in dentistry today – whether it is one tooth or an entire mouth.

What do we really need to consider prior to starting an aesthetic case?

The ability to offer our patients options in the pursuit of their restorative goals is paramount.  This program will focus on understanding current trends and materials in both direct and indirect restorative dentistry. We will discuss the differences between translucent zirconia, and lithium disilicate (IPS e.max), and when to prescribe the different materials. We will also discuss the differences and indications of bonding versus cementing as well as new developments, trends and technologies in direct restorative dentistry.

This program will be a combination of lecture and hands on exercises.
