The Magic of Laser Assisted and Conservative Cosmetic Dentistry is organized by Delaware State Dental Society (DSDS) and will be held on Sep 25, 2020 at Hilton Wilmington/Christiana, Newark, Delaware, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6 CE Credits. Course Description: Laser technology has become a rising star in the evolution of appearance enhancements. Dentistry has seen a huge breakthrough with the introduction of a combination hard-soft tissue CO2, Erbium and Diode wavelengths. The conservative nature of this technique has created a firm footing in the antiaging trend that is spanning the globe. Among the many benefits of less invasive care and quicker healing responses, Dr. Flax has helped pioneer the "closed flap technique" that, in many cases, puts control of gingival and osseous contours into the hands of the cosmetic restorative dentist. Improved artistry has greatly reduced treatment times, enhanced income, and allowed patient satisfaction to soar better than ever. In addition, other uses will be shown that will help patients get treatment for ulcers, soft tissue anomalies/biopsies, and removal of decay-often without anesthesia. Course Objectives: • Find out protocols which are aesthetically beautiful and biologically healthy • See the simple techniques that assure success for you and your patients • Discover a guaranteed way to help your cases to finish at least 2 months earlier • Learn updated techniques in posterior composites that are minimally invasive Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
