Course Description

Dental curing lights play a huge role in patient treatment in our offices every day. Fifty percent of all income in our practices is derived from the successful use of light-cured materials. Yet, LED curing lights can be one of the most underappreciated assets we utilize in our goal of successful patient outcomes. Improper or insufficient light curing of composite resins can lead to a host of negative consequences including lower bond strengths, additional water sorption, poor physical properties, micro-leakage, sensitivity, and recurrent decay just to name a few. In this 1-hour video, Dr. Doug Lambert will discuss new technology, and the many steps each dentist should take to ensure a quality cure and positive results for our patients.

Learning Objectives

  • Enhance your knowledge base of the clinical importance of proper light curing
  • Evaluate the key components to establish an efficient curing technique with LED curing lights for you and your staff
  • Learn about new technology to accurately determine and monitor how your light interacts with the composites you use in your office every day
