May 2017 Course
Expires: Sunday, May 31st, 2020

Web Only


The ADA issued Radiographic Protocols in 2012 that focused on an individualized approach to taking X-rays. With the advent of NIR Transillumination caries detection and its many benefits, dental professionals now have more diagnostic options and are not limited to only visual exams and X-rays. This course is designed to educate attendees on NIR Transillumination caries and to open discussion on variables that may cause modifications to their particular protocols.
