Close to Home: What Expert Marriage Advice Can Teach Us
About Creating Successful, 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.

• The importance direct veneers and esthetic composite restorations play in the reconstruction of anterior teeth
• When posts should be used, and when indirect dentistry is best for the patient
• The best techniques for direct reconstruction of severely compromised posterior teeth
• Advancements in today’s bonding and adhesive technologies
• How to achieve profound hemostasis and maintain control throughout your procedures
• The foundational role prevention plays in quality, longlasting dentistry
• An in-depth look and greater understanding of in-office and take-home tooth whitening, including the treatment of fluorosis

We are honored to welcome:
