The Similarities Between Quality Marriages and Quality Long-Lasting Dentistry

Modern operative dentistry is guided by some very important principles that must be understood in order to create predictable, quality, long-lasting results. There is a plethora of restorative materials available today, and we as clinicians must be as knowledgeable as possible about each of them. We must know when to use composite, lithium disilicate, zirconia, porcelain, metal, etc., and we must know the dos and don'ts for preparing the tooth and the chosen material. Join Dr. Dan Fischer as he discusses a fun way to help dental professionals stay on top of the complex and ever-changing dental world by comparing the creation of quality, long-lasting dentistry with the creation of a quality, long-lasting marriage. You’ll see that what can be boring becomes fun and, hence, memorable, assuring immediate and lasting implementation.

Improving Your Effectiveness as a Dental Professional

As a dental professional, you play a critical role in the overall health of every patient. In this course, Carol Jent covers topics ranging from ways we can put an end to dental caries to critical techniques for performing the pre-whitening exam. Carol will break the day into two Informative Sessions:

Navigating the Whitening Maze: Start with a Plan—End with Success
Did you know Americans spend approximately $1.4 billion on tooth whitening every year? Did you also know that whitening can be a major profit center in your office and specifically the dental hygiene department? Keep up-to-date on this hot topic as Carol discusses the basics of tooth whitening, marketing strategies and considerations, how to match the right product to the right patient, and the all-important pre-whitening exam.

Putting an End to Dental Caries: Wishful Thinking or Potential Reality?
More than one in five people in the United States have untreated caries. Dental caries is the most common chronic disease affecting children. Is there a “magic pill” to prevent tooth decay? Possibly. Learn about products, pointers, and risk assessments that can prevent caries in all of your patients.

Carol Jent

Carol Jent, RDH Some people think Carol Jent is trying to fit two lifetimes into one.

Though she has held various positions at Ultradent, she is currently the R&D Clinical Hygienist and oversees the dental hygiene school programs. Carol maintains a busy lecture schedule, authors dental and dental hygiene articles, and serves on the boards of numerous organizations. She even manages to see patients at least once a week. An avid volunteer, Carol contributes her time and expertise to Donated Dental Services, Sealants for Smiles, and an annual healthcare mission to China. Thankfully she no longer flies small planes.
