Course Details

Clinical practice today uses scientifically sound, evidence-based approaches. In recent years, there has been a noticeable shift to the caries treatment paradigm, focused on better preventing and managing caries as a disease.


In this lecture, Dr. Young will present a scientific overview of caries management by risk assessment utilizing new tools such as the ADA Caries Classification System, silver diamine fluoride (SDF), partial caries removal, and glass ionomer cement (GIC) to managing caries. Actual clinical cases will be used to illustrate these concepts.


An excellent update on caries management and prevention, this course is relevant to all the members of the dental care team.

Learning Objectives
  • Develop evidence-based treatment options to manage caries based on individual patient risk factors
  • Use the ADA Caries Classification System to determine when nonsurgical and surgical are appropriate
  • Use clinical cases to demonstrate how to use SDF, partial caries removal, and GIC to treat caries chemically
