October 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT
Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) has been used extensively around the globe for decades. SDF provides immediate relief from dentinal hypersensitivity, kills pathogenic organisms, hardens softened dentin making it more acid and abrasion resistant and does not stain sound dentin or enamel. This Mastermind will explain and discuss the uses, application, indications, limitations and contraindications of SDF.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:
- Learn about the evidence for using SDF to treat and prevent dental caries.
- SDF uses and application beyond caries
- Demonstrate proper documentation, coding, and billing for SDF.
