Couse Description:

Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a revolutionary approach to combating caries in a non-invasive manner.  Since 2014 FDA clearance in the United States and a widely publicized 2016 feature in the New York Times, there has been tremendous interest in surrounding the use of SDF from patients and dentists. Learn the principles of case selection, informed consent, treatment planning, and clinical protocol for SDF. Learn how to restore cavities in a quick, effective and painless way using Glass Ionomer Cement and SDF, known as Silver Modified Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (SMART). Find out how offering minimally-invasive options like SDF and SMART can attract new patients, improve patient satisfaction, and increase internal marketing and word of mouth referrals to your practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the evidence for using SDF and SMART to treat and prevent dental caries
  • Review informed consent and treatment planning for SDF and SMART
  • Demonstrate proper documentation, coding, and billing for SDF and SMART
  • Describe case selection, materials, and clinical protocol for SDF and SMART
