This lesson features an interview with biomimetic master and founder of the BAARD institute, Dr. Steve Schiffenhaus. He’ll discuss the complex inter-workings of the dentin enamel complex (DEC or DEJ) and make a compelling argument for how it functions as an organ. A fundamental understanding for the DEC/DEJ is necessary for understanding how to properly practice advanced adhesive dentistry. Why? Because, the DEC/DEJ is nature’s perfect bonding of enamel to dentin. Biomimetic dentists aim to mimic this biological structure in their restorations.
