  • Ultradent Announces Free CE Credit

    January 12, 2009 South Jordan, UTu

    Ultradent Products, Inc. is sponsoring a free CE course through an educational grant. The online course, “Tissue Management Concepts”, is authored and presented by Dr. Dan Fischer. It consists of a discussion about hemostasis, tissue retraction and the procedure for sulcular control. 


    President/CEO of Ultradent, Dr. Dan Fischer, is a graduate of Loma Linda University. He has maintained a full time private practice for fifteen years. He is the inventor of several tissue management products which are used widely in the dental profession today. Objectives of Dr. Fischer’s course include an understating of basic tissue management concepts, a process for hemostasis and tissue retraction and an understanding of restorative dentistry-based tissue management. 

    “There is nothing a dentist can do from a quality standpoint when bleeding or sulcular fluid is present”, said Dr. Dan Fischer. “With proper tissue management techniques, the quality of impressions and the resultant indirect restorations can be favorably predicted. In fact, as important as quality tissue management is for impression making, it can be even more relevant to the adhesive bonded restoration, direct or indirect.” 

    For more information, please visit Dentaltown at www.towniecentral.com/Dentaltown/OnlineCE. The course, Tissue Management Concepts, is available for 2 ADA Cerp/AGD Pace credits. ​
