April 26, 2018 -- SMART Restorations Using Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) and Glass Ionomer Cement (GIC) -- 1 CEU
Presenter: Doug Young, DDS, EdD, MS, MBA
Webinar Begins: 4/26/18 7:00 PM ET, 4:00 PM PT
Despite caries risk assessment and therapeutic tools such as fluoride that have been in use for decades, dental caries remains a significant problem in many populations. The ADA Caries Classification System (ADA CCS) was published to classify all stages of caries lesions and to help discern when surgical restoration versus chemical remineralization is likely needed. Silver diamine fluoride (SDF), a unique chemotherapeutic agent used with or without glass ionomer cement (GIC), may well bridge the gap between remineralization and traditional restoration, especially in certain populations and situations. This CE webinar will review the science and proper placement of SDF and GIC restorations.

May 8, 2018 -- Dr. Jack Griffin Discusses Bioactive Materials in Free CE Webinar
Dentist and popular lecturer Dr. Jack Griffin will present “Regenerative Restorations – Durable, Comfortable and Aesthetic Results,” a Continuing Education (CE) webinar on May 8, 2018 at 4:00 PM PT / 7:00 PM ET.
Dr. Griffin’s webinar will provide an overview of bioactive materials that are durable, aesthetic and easy to for dentists to use. Participants will learn about dental materials which “not only offer clinical performance but also reduce microleakage while releasing the bio-stimulating ions calcium, phosphate, and fluoride.”
For the past several years, Dr. Griffin has used ACTIVA BioACTIVE, which releases and recharges calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions. He chose ACTIVA because it “lasts longer, looks better and is much kinder to gum tissues” than traditional dental materials like glass ionomers. His three Missouri-based dental practices use ACTIVA BioACTIVE materials for a variety of procedures on patients of all ages. “Our dentists are confident that by using ACTIVA they can provide patients with faster, better healthcare,” said Dr. Griffin in a recent interview.
Dr. Griffin’s free CE webinar “Regenerative Restorations – Durable, Comfortable and Aesthetic Results,” will be available for On-Demand viewing after May 8, 2018 on www.pulpdentlearning.com.

May 22, 2018 -- Standing in the Gap: Methods and Materials Options for At-Risk Patients -- 1 CEU
Presenter: Timothy Bizga, D.D.S.
Webinar Begins: 5/22/18 7:00 PM ET, 4:00 PM PT
Caries has not been vanquished as once predicted. Today with an aging population, increased use of dry-mouth causing medications and the abundance of sugar proliferating the “western diet," our patients are at risk. This CE webinar is intended to be a thought-provoking discussion on how a blend of new and old methods and materials can allow us to create a hedge of protection around our at-risk patients. Clinical tips and brand suggestions will be included.
