Recent research demonstrates that the composite curing light technique employed is a critical variable in the overall success of your restoration. Prolific researcher and professor from the University of Washington, Dr. Alireza Sadr will talk about how to properly cure a dental composite. He’ll discuss why dental composite curing strategy really matters. You’ll learn how to restore a dental composite that is built to last. To learn more, I recommend checking out the Academy of Biomimetic Dentistry’s webinar on May 29th. Dr. Alireza Sadr
