Managing Dental Caries: Evolving Strategies and Proven Techniques

CE Credits
1 hour

What we know about cariology continues to evolve. New evidence, new treatments, and new innovations shape the way dental teams manage the disease.

How can providers apply this knowledge to provide personalized prevention recommendations for patients?

In this webinar, a collaboration between CareQuest Institute, Kansas City University, and the American Association of Public Health Dentistry (AAPHD), our expert panel will explore that question and various strategies for managing dental caries. They will also talk about avoiding a “one-size-fits-all” approach, sharing guidance on nonsurgical and nonrestorative protocols and implementation.

This is the third in a series of summer webinars on understanding, assessing, and managing caries.

Learning Objectives

  • Analyze various strategies for managing caries: screening, prevention, and nonrestorative treatment, including minimally invasive care.
  • Identify the risks, benefits, alternatives, and mechanisms of action for current preventive chemotherapeutics used to prevent or treat caries in a nonrestorative way. 
  • Discuss the practice of personalized prevention recommendations for patients.
