This course is designed to bring together the art and science of clinical and esthetic dentistry and will focus on many of the clinical issues we deal with daily in our practices from treatment planning to material selection to execution. Criteria for selection of clinical materials will be discussed based on evidence-based information, not on marketing claims. Additionally, an update on Zirconia materials will be provided: is it the universal restorative material? This program promises to provide a potpourri of clinically relevant topics that we as clinicians can implement immediately into our practices to improve the quality of patient care and satisfaction.
