Dental Biomaterials: From Scientific Evidence to Clinical Practice with Dr. Ricardo Carvalho and Dr. Adriana Manso
September 2016- March 2017
Monday Evenings or Friday Afternoons – UBC or Surrey
This blended seminar-lecture based study club will cover the most updated scientific literature available for an evidence-based practice regarding dental biomaterials. As most of the restorative dentistry procedures rely on adequate material selection and clinical handling, we will provide an immediate clinical application for optimal results. The topics will cover a review of the most current scientific literature, material selections and recommendation of clinical procedures. Each 3.5-hour session will be broken down into a seminar and lecture sessions. Clinical cases will be used to explore the decision-making process that was used to determine the best approach in terms of materials selection and techniques used to achieve the best resolution. Participants will be encouraged to bring their own clinical cases and questions related to dental biomaterials to be discussed with the group.
