Highlights include:
• Solving both short and long term sensitivity issues without compromising long term results
• Diagnostic methods to predict better outcomes
• Prevention methods to minimize recurrent issues in case by case examples
• How to treat dentin and enamel with remineralization/adhesion principles
• New directions in caries removal, anesthesia, and direct pulp capping
