"Principles and Protocols to Establish Advanced Adhesive Dentistry in Your Everyday Practice"

NCAGD had a great Summer Seminar titled “Principles and Protocols to Establish Advanced Adhesive Dentistry in Your Everyday Practice.” The speaker was Dr Troy Schmedding from Walnut Creek, California.

Dr. Schmedding speaks and teaches nationally as well as internationally on both aesthetic and restorative dentistry.

He discussed the goal every practitioner should have while heading into any procedure, it is to be able to provide their patients the optimal restoration in the most conservative fashion. In the last 25 years, there have been major advancements in material science, research and techniques, however, many of these advancements have not been implemented in the majority of dental practices.

The full day course reviewed techniques, materials and key research about tooth preservation and gave an introduction on how to perform advanced adhesion dentistry simply in the office. He lectured on advanced adhesion techniques in delivering superior direct and indirect restorations. Dr Schmedding discussed Air Abrasion in Adhesive Dentistry, immediate dentin seal, the best choice for cementation of today’s ceramics, optimal aesthetics with little to no preparation, proper temporization for Minimally Invasive Preparations and demystifying the selection process for the best bonding/adhesive strategies.

Dr Schmedding’s course was well-received by the attendees, dentists from recent graduate to 40 years in practice. There were several Sponsors that day who had a chance to speak and introduce their products. There was a Raffle Drawing at the end of the day, the sponsors donated towards the Raffle Prize.

The successful Sunday event had attendees from Elk Grove, Sacramento area to Orange

County, Southern CA. Our event was held in Hilton Garden Inn, San Mateo, CA. This venue is centrally located in the San Francisco Bay Area and is 9 miles from SFO Airport. The attendees found it very accessible via Hwy 92, Freeway 101 and 880.
