Summary:

As the practice of dentistry has evolved, significant advances have been realized in the success and predictability of technical procedures, the efficacy of instrumentation, and the means by which information is distributed.

In conjunction with collegiate universities, pioneering dental operataries have been equipped to create instructional CD-ROMs and videos of live surgeries and to broadcostthese procedures into class rooms, lecture halls, and computer screens worldwide. Through the use of advanced technology, this information can be accessed by any site that possesses an ISDN line, enabling licensed healthcare professionals from around the world to expand their knowledge and technical proficiency.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

The Importance of Facially Driven Smile Design in Modern Comprehensive Dentistry
Modern dentistry is comprehensive, comprehensive dentistry is interdisciplinary, interdisciplinary dentistry is facially driven, Facially Driven dentistry starts with Smile Design. Facially Driven Natural looking Smile Design is the starting point of modern restorative dentistry and the key to improve diagnosis and decision making.
