Event description

Description

Update in prevention and caries arrest
presented by Dr. Margherita Fontana

Delta Dental of Iowa and Dental Wellness Plan network dentists and office staff are invited to a free continuing education course this spring.

This presentation will provide an overview of currently accepted, evidence-based and/or expert opinion recommendations for the management of dental caries lesions, with a focus on lesion arrest. Discussions will be centered on current concepts for caries lesion detection (e.g., cavitated and non-cavitated lesions) and diagnosis (e.g., active vs. arrested lesions), including thresholds for non-surgical and surgical interventions, caries tissue removal (selective caries removal, no caries removal, Hall crowns, etc.), with a focus on non-restorative strategies for caries lesion control (e.g., fluorides-including SDF, sealants, infiltration, etc.).

Dr. Margherita Fontana is a leading expert in prevention and cariology and the current President of the American Academy of Cariology.

Register by Thursday, March 21. Three continuing education credits will be awarded.
