Using Supra-Gingival Minimally Invasive Dentistry to Grow a Restorative Practice & Give Patients What They Want, Using Proper Team Communication Skills

Saturday, October 13, 2018


Couse Synopsis

Launch Your Practice into the New Generation


In this course, Dr. Ruiz will offer a real-world approach to treating patients using supra-gingival minimally-invasive adhesive dentistry. He will also demonstrate how to master your case presentation, enrollment skills and communication for a thriving practice.


While there are many new techniques and materials in restorative dentistry today, a hard look at indirect restorative clinical dentistry shows a small improvement to the overall experience for patients and dentists. Teeth continue to be cut aggressively for crowns and fillings, which increases unhealthy subgingival margins and the need for root canal therapy. Subgingival margins mean difficult and unpredictable cord packing, impression, cementation and restorations. Dr. Ruiz will show how supra-gingival dentistry has the opposite effect, and how these advanced adhesion techniques can be used for a single tooth or for a full-mouth rehabilitation, making dentistry easier, faster, healthier and more predictable.




Upon completion of the course, you will be able to:


• Discuss a more conservative approach to treating severely damaged and partially edentulous dentitions

• Apply the principles for using direct composite and bonding for full-mouth rehabilitation

• Practice the principles of advanced adhesive supra-gingival dentistry and how they make dentistry easier, faster and healthier

• Drive your dental practice profi­t centers and their accelerators

• Master team communication and relationships

• Create long-lasting referrals with effective treatment enrollment.
