8th Annual Robert J. Feigal Symposium
8th Annual Robert J. Feigal Symposium: Advances in Pediatric Restorative Dentistry
Friday, September 19, 2014
Are you familiar with the latest AAPD recommendations for restorative dentistry in children? Are your restorative treatment decisions based on the patient’s level of caries risk?
The 2014 Feigal Symposium will bring you up to date on restorative dental care for children. Experts in the field of pediatric dentistry will give you clinical tips on selecting the most appropriate restorative materials and techniques to ensure optimal results. You will learn when, where and how to best utilize: composite resin restorations, stainless steel crowns, open-faced and pre-veneered stainless steel crowns, polycarbonate crowns, composite strip crowns, glass ionomer and resin-modified glass ionomer cements. In addition, you will gain insights into current pediatric dentistry standards of care using risk assessment in clinical decision-making.
This program is funded in part by an unrestricted educational grant from GC America.
You will leave this continuing dental eduction program better able to:
- assess outcomes of resin composite restorations based on current clinical data.
- recognize the role of occlusal forces on restorative failures.
- determine when full coverage restorations are indicated.
- recognize the types of esthetic options available for anterior primary teeth.
- determine which clinical situations warrant the use of glass ionomer cements.
- incorporate risk assessment into your clinical decisions for restorative care.
