San Francisco—Dr. Gordon Christensen, one of dentistry’s most popular clinical lecturers, will demonstrate use of class II resins during the Education in the Round course, Class II Resins Can Be Simple and Fast, Oct. 18, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. (course 5401) at the ADA Annual Session.
“Would you like your class II resins to be faster, easier, better and less expensive to place? Let me show you how to do just that in a live clinical demonstration,” said Dr. Christensen.
Dr. Christensen, director, Practical Clinical Courses, and CEO and co-founder of the CR Foundation in Provo, Utah, will show participants how to identify and discuss the best materials for class II resin-based composites, the best techniques for class II resin-based composites and reasons for postoperative tooth sensitivity and premature restoration failure.
“This live demonstration includes proven and new concepts for class II resin restorations,” said Dr. Christensen, “including identification of minimal class II carious lesions, minimal tooth preparations, tooth desensitization, liners, the best matrices, comparison of composite brands, finishing for optimum longevity, fees and third party payment.”
The ADA’s Education in the Round courses allow Annual Session attendees to experience live-patient procedures in a fully functional dental operatory, right in the Moscone Center. The cost for these courses is $69 each.
