Begin Survey

An adult patient presents with restoration loss on the mandibular right premolar. During clinical and radiographic examinations, you diagnose superficial demineralized dentin reaching beyond the CEJ with the proximal margin partially covered by overgrowing gingival tissue.

How would you manage this deep caries lesion with subgingival margins?

You are invited to a 1-hour meeting to review and discuss the findings from the surveys we conducted to assess our members’ approaches and comfort levels to mitigate SARS-CoV-2 transmission risks, and costs to their practices.

We will discuss study findings related to confidence on practice sustainability, COVID-19 vaccination and concerns, COVID-19 symptoms among dental staff and changes in infection control approaches.

We are offering two times for your convenience. Advance registration required.
