"Where Digital All Starts in Your Office"


A foundation is necessary to incorporate digital dentistry into your office including the use of intraoral scanners and digital laboratory connections. This introductory hands-on session will teach you using actual 3-D scanners to efficiently scan intra-orally.  Learn how to create digital orders and communicate effectively with the laboratory online.  See how to design and print a 3-D model of your scan.  Gain valuable tips and tricks for highly predictable model-free restorations.

R-4 Marty Zase D.M.D.

"Zero Sensitivity Bleaching"

Bleaching with zero sensitivity is possible.  The use of a special pre-whitener immediately before each bleaching application is the secret.  Contrary to what most dentists believe, the shape of the custom trays does matter.  We will go through all the steps for making effective trays and the protocols for doing bleaching with no sensitivity.  Learn how to develop bleaching methods to correct stubborn, resistant teeth.  Participants are asked to bring models of their own teeth.

"Digital 2.0: Unleash Your Digital Practice"


Having learned how to successfully use intro-oral scanning, hands-on techniques creating new work flows need to be implemented.  Learn techniques to improve full-arch bite registrations for complex cases, digital bite splints, implant planning and clear orthodontic aligners.  Gain a thorough understanding of "Practice Lab" digital workflows for single visit CAD/CAM dentistry.  Discover the expanding field of "open" milling machines and what is on the horizon.  Participation at R-3 is essential to attending.

F-2 Stephan Lampl B. Ch D., Deepak Mehta M.D.S.

"Using Pre-Fabricated Composite Veneers to Provide Bio-Esthetics and Functional Harmony"


Conservative aesthetic treatments should be based on solid bio-mechanical principles.  Increasing the vertical dimension is often necessary to accomplish the long -term stable functional needs of the patient desiring aesthetic improvements.  Anterior canine guidance should be established regardless of the final restorations chosen.  This hands-on workshop will give you the opportunity to diagnose, prepare, place and finish pre- fabricated veneers and to more simply achieve aesthetic and occlusal success.

F-3 Susan McMahon D.M.D.

"Selfie Ready? 3...2...1...Awesome Conservative Aesthetic Dentistry for Teenagers and Young Adults"

Our practices are full of younger patients with minor cosmetic dental needs and desires. 

Teenagers and young adults are extremely aware of their appearances and self-esteem is often directly related to their perception of their appearance.  This hands-on course will look at issues that are of particular concern to our younger patients:  tooth color, post orthodontic refinement of smiles, spacing and crowding, dental trauma, tooth size discrepancies, misshapen teeth, congenitally missing teeth, and soft tissue considerations

"The Battle of “De-Bond”- the Dawn of Regeneration"

For years the dental profession has been struggling with providing effective long-term preventive and direct restorative solutions for our patients. The evidence is mounting that we may have been "barking up the wrong tree" in our efforts. There have been many "bioactive" materials introduced, and there is a real need for the dental care provider to understand why and how to use these materials, and why they are important for patient care now and in the future.

S-2 Brooks Haney. D.D.S.

"Simple Alignment Using Clear Retainers for Better Aesthetic Results"

Patients often are looking for simple answers to their anterior aesthetic concerns.  Learn how to offer a conservative, minimally invasive, short-term treatment option for adult patients with crooked or misaligned teeth. As an alternative to traditional treatment options such as crowns and veneers, clear aligners can be used to provide excellent results. Utilizing proven orthodontic principles learn how to deliver results with ease, confidence and predictability.

S-3 Rob Ritter D.M.D.

"Engaging Social Media"

The internet has become the way many patients select their dentists so an effective online presence is vital.  Having a large number of positive reviews helps boost the position of your website and boosts the credibility of your website. This fast paced, interactive and informative presentation will teach innovative ways to attract new patients using the internet.  Participants will need to bring their own laptop computers and download access codes prior to the session which will be connected to the web.
