C.E. Course Speaker will be Dr. Nathan Lawson DMD PhD

Nathaniel Lawson DMD PhD is the Director of the Division of Biomaterials at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry and the program director of the Biomaterials residency program. He graduated from UAB School of Dentistry in 2011 and obtained his PhD in Biomedical Engineering in 2012. He has served as an investigator on over 50 clinical and laboratory research grants, and published over 150 peer reviewed articles, book chapters, and research abstracts. His research interests are the mechanical, optical, and biologic properties of dental materials and clinical evaluation of new dental materials. He was the 2016 recipient of the Stanford New Investigator Award and the 2017 3M Innovative Research Fellowship both from the American Dental Association.  He serves on the American Dental Association Council of Scientific Affairs and is on the editorial board of The Journal of Adhesive Dentistry and Compendium. He has lectured nationally and internationally on the subject of dental materials. He also works as a general dentist in the UAB Faculty Practice.

Doctor Lawson will present a lecture on Contemporary Dental Ceramics and Prevention and non-surgical treatment of caries

New ceramic materials have changed the way we practice dentistry by offering a strong, esthetic and affordable restorative option for our patients.  But ceramic materials do not handle the same as metal-based restorations and improper selection or handling can lead to premature failure.  This course will teach you how to select and handle different types of Bonding Dental Ceramics.

    Course objectives:

  1. Review the different types of dental ceramic materials
  2. Choosing a ceramic material for anterior restorations
  3. Preparation and design considerations for posterior crowns and bridges
  4. Strategies to adjust, polish and cut off ceramic crowns.

Prevention and non-surgical treatment of caries

Despite our best efforts to restore natural dentition with adhesive dentistry, all restorations are inferior to nature tooth structure and susceptible to secondary caries.  This lecture presents a simple approach for treating caries based on the risk factors of our patients.  We will discuss new products and techniques used for re-mineralization (such as Ml Paste) as well as review time-tested approaches (such as fluoride-containing products and diet modification recommendations).  This course will also discuss conservation non-surgical treatments for caries and/or enamel defects (such as resin infiltration and micro abrasion).  This course is friendly for the entire dental team. (including dentists, hygienists, and assistants).

    Course objectives:

  1. Review four distinct types of high caries risk patients
  2. Present protocols and techniques for treating each type of high caries risk patients
  3. Review the evidence for fluoride

The ability to bond dental ceramics allow the practitioner to perform more conservative tooth preparations.   As there are many different types of dental ceramics available (zirconia, lithium disilicate, porcelain, processed composite, etc), determining the correct protocol for each type of ceramic can be confusing.  This lecture aims to simplify the process of bonding ceramics and provide the clinician with a protocol that can be used to bond any type of dental ceramic.  Each detail of the bonding procedure is based on research performed at the UAB School of Dentistry.
