Course 1:  The "2019 Bottom Line" - with Gordon Christensen

Have you recently reviewed the changes in major trends of materials, cements, and devices in the profession and their potential impact on your practice?  Know which trends are valuable to your practice and which will fizzle out.  See which technologies and products will best serve your patients and which ones will only deflate your wallet!  Where can your practice increase patient service while also increasing practice profitability? No matter how long you have been in practice, you and your team will benefit from this life-changing course.  

Some of the topics discussed during the cruise will include:

    • Which zirconia crown types and brands are acceptable or unacceptable?
    • Are dual-cure restorative resins going to reduce use of light-cure resins?
    • The best way to attach a fixed prosthesis over implants without screw holes.
    • Is silver diamine fluoride actually working?
    • Which of the new technologies do you actually need?
    • The only surface disinfectant that actually disinfects.
    • Are low-cost implants inferior?
    • Which scanners are working well?
    • Centrifuging the patient’s blood for a great graft!
    • Doubling your productivity with legal delegation of clinical tasks.
    • What is the best “salvage” cement for low-retention restorations?
    • Making mandibular dentures stay in without implants.
    • Making your zirconia crowns stay in place without debonding.
    • The best of the new pulp-capping products.
