The Balanced Oral Environment: Assessing, Restoring and Maintaining Dental Health

The infective process of dental decay has been a primary focus of the modern dental practice. Mountains of dental literature exist to help explain this process and yet our patients still struggle with this controllable disease.

What do we as dental professionals do to help our patients cope and manage this disease process? What procedures, techniques and materials can we use the slow down the process and perhaps reverse it? We know that the management of periodontal disease is a factor, but how can we make this aspect become more predictable? How do we stop “one step forward, two steps back” game?

This course will explore the whole basis of patient care including: cariology, preventive care, diagnostics, minimally invasive dentistry periodontal management, and how bioactive materials can and should be considered for use in your dental practice. We will explore the realm of composites and bonding systems, glass ionomers and the new categories of bioactive materials available; and their place in today’s dental care armamentarium The clinician will help you develop a greater comfort level for the many applications to use these versatile and important dental materials in today’s dental practice.


  • Understand the conditions needed in the oral cavity to help our patients achieve a balanced oral environment.

  • How to make your patients part of the solution to their oral care, not the problem.

  • The basic science and use of Glass Ionomers and Resin Modified Glass Ionomers and other bioactive materials in your practice.

  • To use bioactive materials in conjunction with other restorative materials to better serve our patients.

  • Develop a better understanding of the current advancements in our profession and how they can be incorporated into the dental practice to make you more productive and profitable.

“Practically Speaking”: A Real World Perspective for Today’s Dental Practice

The Glass Ionomer Revolution: Using Bioactive Materials to Achieve Proactive Dental Care.

For years the dental profession has been struggling with providing effective long-term direct restorative solutions for our patients. The evidence is mounting that our current “passive” materials should instead be “bioactive”.

With many new bioactive materials being introduced, there is a need for the dental care provider to understand how to use these materials and why they are important in patient care.

In this course we will explore:

  • You will be introduced to several restorative techniques and bioactive materials used in the placement of direct and indirect restorations, which can transform the way you approach all your direct restorations. The clinician will help you develop a greater comfort level for the many applications to use these versatile and important dental materials in today’s dental practice.
