  • How to achieve predictable interproximal contacts.
  • Understanding different placement techniques and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
  • RMGI or flowables…Do you need them as liners or dentin replacement materials? If so, which is better?
  • “Bulk Cure”…good or bad?
  • “Sonic” fill systems…What’s the story?
  • Minimizing post-operative sensitivity.
  • Bonding lights…your best friend or your worst enemy?
  • Fast or slow polymerization…does it really matter?
  • MMP inhibition…the next adhesive paradigm?
  • When are you better off with an indirect restoration?
  • Discuss general principles of esthetics
  • Review common errors in achieving excellent esthetics
  • Discuss general principles of color and shade analysis
  • All for one and one for all? Are all “esthetic resins” the same and which one is right for you
  • Show you the simple technique of “3 & Out” to achieve world class esthetic results with composite only
