Course Description

Let’s face it, the idea of sitting through a course on dental caries or caries risk assessment is not appealing (in fact it sounds downright boring). However, the science of clinical cariology is expanding at an astonishing rate and this is one subject you will be glad you understand. If you do not know how to use monoclonal antibody tests, biofilm ATP analysis, and salivary diagnostics, you are already behind the times. Do you want to be the only dental office saying, “Brush better, don’t eat sweets, and here’s some fluoride?”

Course Objectives

As a result of attending this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand how to intervene medically in the caries process.
  • Control rampant caries with focused therapeutics.
  • Implement an effective preventive protocol for high and low risk patients.
  • Prolong the life of restorations in all patients.
