We use X-ray imaging every day in our office to help our clinical treatment decisions. Now the most amazing, cost effective method – cone beam imaging – is simply explained. Come see this incredible technology and learn how to treat patients more efficiently, expertly and confidently. Discover the important findings you cannot afford to miss. Learn how CBCT makes you a better dentist.


Saturday's lecture will include the principles, risks, and liabilities of CBCT. Dr. Miles will present several cases (endodontic, implant, sinus, TMJ and sleep disorder) that will showcase how you could implement CBCT into your general dental practice.
