Available Sessions

  • Endodontics Versus Single-Tooth Implants
    Topic: Endodontics vs Single-Tooth Implants

    This course is designed to help clinicians develop treatment plans for patients that are based on accurate diagnosis. In the marketplace of dental economics, appropriate treatment is challenged by the marketing blitz of implant companies and their hired guns. Unfortunately, the treatment plans are based on the clinician’s modality of choice rather than the needs of the patient. Clinicians will learn a simple, efficient and accurate algorithm for diagnosis and treatment planning, which will enhance the quality of care for their patients.
