Providing Quality Continuing Education to Dental Professionals Worldwide

The 13th Napa Dental Experience will be held February 3-4, 2017

Napa Valley Marriot Hotel & Spa

The Napa Dental Experience was born from a desire to provide quality continuing education for dental professionals while sharing the beauty of California's Napa Valley. Dental IQ was established in 2005 to continue the Experience tradition. We became Dental IQ, LLC in 2010 while expanding our offerings of education, consulting and event planning.

It is our goal to help each member of the dental team become his or her professional best. Patient care is enhanced when the entire team is current and enthusiatic about providing exceptional health care.

The 13th Annual Napa Dental Experience will provide each team member with the opportunity to earn 12 CE units in a fun and learning-focused environment.

After 35 plus years of continuing education courses, this was the best. Not only were all of you so versed in your subject matter, you delivered it with clarity, efficiency, enthusiasm, not to mention with (bordering on hilarious at times) humor. I've never laughed so much while learning so much!

Schedule

Friday, February 3, 2016
8AM - 9AM Registration & Visit Exhibitors
9AM - 12PM The 3 W's of Direct Restorative Dentistry

Robert Lowe, DDS

Martin Jablow, DMS

There are more options available then ever before on how to treat and directly restore a tooth.

This course will show you why the "one size fits all approach" to direct restorative dentistry MAY NOT be the best approach. All restorative dentistry starts with an accuracte diagnosis. Choosing the correct restorative materials (enamel and dentin replacements) for the patients' type and state of diseease may lead to better outcomes and longer lasting dentistry.

In this course you will learn the following:

  • Using the latest technologies to accurately diagnose decay before "the explorer stick".
  • Minimally invasive to maximum intervention dentistry require selecting different restorative materials. Which material or materials for which clinical scenario? There may be more than one right answer!
  • Where do "bioactive" or "smart" restorative materials fit in? Why the bonding agent, base and restorative material should be selected based on the patient needs or clinical environment.
  • Bulk Filling vs. Layering technique for composite placement - Maybe the science does not "back up" the beliefs.
  • Achieving good and predicatable Class II contacts. We should not be placing composite with "amalgam aramentarium".
12PM - 1:30PM Gourmet Lunch & Visit Exhibitors
9AM - 12PM The 3 W's of Indirect Restorative Dentistry

Robert Lowe, DDS

Martin Jablow, DMS

There are more options available then ever before on how to treat and indirectly restore a tooth. Do we select a traditional veneer? Partial coverage inlay or onlay? Or full coverage? If "full coverage", which material? Traditional PHM, all ceramic, or milled zirconia??

This course will show you why the "one size fits all approach" to indirect restorative dentistry MAY NOT be the best approach. All restorative dentistry starts with an accuracte diagnosis. Choosing the correct restorative materials for the patients' type and state of diseease may lead to better outcomes and longer lasting dentistry.

In this course you will learn the following:

  • Proper diagnosis leads to proper restorative material selection.
  • Aesthetic and occlusal requirements of the case may require selecting different restorative materials, even in different areas of the same mouth! Which material or materials for which clinical scenario? There may be more than one right answer!
  • Biologic provisionalization for modern restorative materials.
  • Tissue management for master impressions: "no-cord technique, chemotherapeutics, mechanical, and laser techniques.
  • Where do "bioactive" luting agents fit in? Why the final cement should be selected based on marginal placement, clinical environment, and retentiveness of the preparation.
