SDF/SMART Summit Hands-on Course
The AzAGD had a full house for the SDF/SMART Summit on January 12th with over 75 attendees! The course reviewed the use of Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF), Silver Modified Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (SMART), and the Hall Technique in a practice setting.
This innovative approach is a great way to treat a patient’s caries in a minimally invasive manner. The benefits of this technique can bring new patients to the practice, lead to happier patients, and increase word of mouth referrals! Attendees were also given the opportunity to practice the techniques with a hands-on portion of the course to reinforce the techniques learned in lecture. Speakers in the summit included: Dr. Steven Duffin, Dr. John Frachella, Dr. Jeremy Horst, Dr. Jeanette MacLean, and Dr. Douglas Young.
