The 2003 Pacific Dental Conference is proud to present some of the world’s leading dental practitioners who will share with you their secrets to clinical and practice success. Come and enjoy their “Pearls for your Practice” in Vancouver at the Pacific Dental Conference. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll discover:
JOHN KWAN, DDS
Contemporary Periodontics on the Non-Cutting Edge
Micro ultrasonics have become the primary instrumentation modality for many practices. You will learn how and why this technique works for prophys to debridements. Review the various adjuncts we now have for non-surgical care, AND SEE what you’ve been missing with the subgingival endoscope!
ROBERT C. FAZIO, DMD
Antibiotics in Dentistry
This chair-side friendly course is designed to update the dentist on the drugs prescribed every day and their potential interaction with the myriad of medications taken by patients. Up to date protocols for prescribing antibiotics, analgesics and local anesthetics will be contrasted with older less effective protocols. The emphasis will be on dental drug-medical drug interactions and alternative selections will be emphasized.
KARL LEINFELDER DDS, MS
Recent Developments in Restorative Materials
Emphasis will be placed on the clinical evaluation of current polymer substitutes for porcelain (occlusal reconstruction); the new universal composites, modified (conservative) cavity preparations and insertion techniques; latest developments in dentin adhesives; newest modified glass ionomer systems; etiology and treatment of abfracted lesions; adhesive luting agents; ceramic and heat cured resin inlays/onlays and new concepts on post and cores.
JORDAN SOLL, BSC, DDS
JAMBALA: Extend Your Reach
Dr. Jordan Soll is the Cosmetic Consultant to the editorial board of Oral Health and has recently been featured in Flare Magazine. He will present step by step strategies to help you successfully implement aesthetic dentistry into your practice.
RON JACKSON, DDS, FAGD, FAACD
Mastering Esthetic Alternatives to Amalgam
Patients today want their dentistry less invasive and more esthetic. Posterior direct resin restorations as well as tooth colored bonded inlays and onlays fulfill both of these and lead to greater satisfaction for patients and dentists. Dr. Jackson is known for his down to earth teaching style and for showing techniques that can be applied Monday morning!
JOHN D. WEST, DDS, MSD

“A mastery level course for the general practitioner.” The program will teach you to make your endodontics efficient, safe, simplified, and more satisfying. Dr. John West will teach diagnosis, restorability, rotary shaping, 3-D obturation and 21 endodontic practice builders. Learn how to take endodontics to a whole new level.
