Course Objective:

Learn to utilize bulklfill and conventional composite to eliminate gaps, bite-pressure sensitivity and “recurrent caries”.

Principles people will be learning about:

  • Understand the clinical consequences of polymerization shrinkage
  • Easily create margins free of white lines (enamel fracture) and later staining
  • Observe polymerization shrinkage in real time with revolutionary OCT
  • Why “low shrinkage composites” do not help and likely are worse
  • Stop creating open gingival margins and the associated “recurrent caries”
  • Learn how to use flowable composite to eliminate gaps

Dr. Bertolotti CV:

Raymond L. Bertolotti received his D.D.S. degree from the University of California, San Francisco, after working as a Ph.D. metallurgical and ceramic engineer at Sandia National Laboratories. Dr. Bertolotti is perhaps best known for introducing “total etch” to North America in 1984.  He also introduced  Panavia in 1985, tin plating in 1989,  self-etching primers in 1992 and HealOzone in 2004. As a founder of Danville Materials and Director of Research, the sectional Contact Matrix system, “MicroPrime”, “MicroEtcher” sandblasting and intraoral tin-plating are also his developments.  He is a well known international lecturer, having presented invited lectures in over 30 countries.
