Predictable results can be fleeting for many dentists. When critical steps are either not followed through on or not followed by manufacturers directions, clinical success is not achieved. Each step is predicated on the success from the last. The goal of this course is to create consistent results in a variety of situations. A step by step approach will be reviewed for a Class V composite, placement of an all ceramic unit, a Class II composite, placement of a ceramic onlay, and taking a single implant impression. Predictable dentistry is always the goal and while adhesive dentistry is taught in dental school many well intentioned dentists quickly lose track of the ever changing science behind this extremely important and complex topic.
