Offensive Dentistry: Let’s face it, sitting through a lecture about dental caries or caries risk assessment isn’t appealing (in fact it sounds downright boring). However, the science of clinical cariology is beginning to have an impact on restorative techniques and technology. Streptococcus mutans has more to fear than a rheostat, now that we’re armed with salivary diagnostics and bioactive materials.
Dr. Brian Novy is the Director of Practice Improvement at the DentaQuest Institute, and is an adjunct associate professor in the division of General Dentistry at Loma Linda University . He serves on the ADA Council of Scientific Affairs, acts as the chair of the CAMBRA coalition, is a member of the AGD and a clinical evaluator for the Catapult Group. The California Dental Association Foundation presented him with the Dugoni Award for “Outstanding contributions to dental education,” and in 2009, the American Dental Association awarded Dr. Nový and his office the title, “Adult Preventive Care Practice of the Year.”
At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
• Understand how to intervene medically in the caries process.
• Control patient caries risk with focused therapeutics.
• Design restorations to minimize recurrent decay.
• Improve the prognosis of restorative treatment.
