Join the Founders of the Yankee Study Club as they embark on a hypothetical day in the life of a busy general dentist. The moderator will describe several common patient problems. The panel of Founders will then discuss each scenario and determine a logical solution to these problems based on science and years of real-world clinical experience. Examples are: managing post-operative sensitivity, options for crown materials in 2023, elastic versus digital impression techniques, treating a failing implant, when to start seeing pediatric patients, interdisciplinary care of geriatric patients, periodontal swelling, and much, much more!
