In the April edition of Inside Dentistry I had an article published about a new composite resin technology. The folks at Septodont are using new resin chemistry to create a composite that has some very interesting physical properties and future potential.
This has been a fun one to research as it potentially a big breakthru in composite chemisty…..and Septodont’s restorative materials facility is right here in Colorado. So it’s been fun to work with a local company!

I’ve been sitting in the Professional Education Committe board meeting all day.
I’m really excited about the program the PEC has put together for this meeting. Lots of great speakers, excellent workshops, a fantastic venue. This has all the makings of a great meeting.
I’ll be very busy at this meeting. Aside from a number of courses that I’m looking forward to attend, I will be taking the written examination for accreditation to maintain my sustaining member status as I continue my accreditation process. Additionally, I’ll be doing 3 presentations:
Monday: I’m doing a corporate symposium for Septodont to discuss their new composite resin system, and will focus on the posterior applications as well as it’s potential for anterior bonding.
Thurs: AM) Will be my favorite lecture “Cosmetic/Elective Dentistry for Adolescents and Young Adults”. This program discusses bleaching, bonding, no-prep veneers (discussion of Lumineers and other similar porcelain products), and focusing on minimally invasive elective dentistry that can create great, improved smiles. PM) I will be leading a hands on workshop for Heraeus featuring the uses of the VENUS porcelain system and it’s application for use as a porcelain veneer system to create smile makeovers. Did this program last year and recieved excellent feedback. So I’m excited to present it again in Hawaii in ’09.
Hope to see you there!
