Course Description:
Dr. Clark will explore the exciting role of direct composites for single tooth and full arch esthetic reconstruction of anterior teeth.  Injection molding with a single shade of composite using the infinity edge margin provide an alternative to traditional fussy layering of composites.  Learn why shape is more important to patients than shade.  Elimination of the dreaded black triangle, restoratively driven papilla regeneration, and elimination of marginal staining will be explained in beautiful still and video imagery.  Practical step by step details will help the clinician to implement these changes on “Monday Morning."

CE Credits: 3
Complimentary Dinner Provided
WSDA Office, Seattle (3rd floor board room)

Course Description:
Resorption is becoming more and more common and it can be difficult to diagnose. Many times it is not found until it has destroyed a significant amount of tooth structure. There are many different types of Resorption and the first step in deciding what type of treatment, if any, is needed is to know what type of resorption it is. With the advent of Cone Beam CT technology proper diagnoses is much more accurate. After listening to this lecture you will confidently diagnose what type of resorption is occurring and be able to recommend the best treatment for your patient.
