Course Description:

Until now our composite went “in” the tooth. Now we can go “around” the tooth. Today, injection molding of composites with modern preparations, super-anatomic clear matrices, and heated multi-viscosity composite can solve so many problems without resorting to crowns. In this fast-moving and entertaining lecture Dr. Clark will demonstrate the art and science of monolithic injection molded composite dentistry.

Learning Objectives:

  • The 6 keys to world class contacts 100% of the time in a Class II.
  • How to injection mold to treat black triangles, peg laterals, fractured teeth and diastemas.
  • How to safely warm composite, and why.
  • Deep margin management.
  • Ultra glossy stain proof anterior restorations.

About the Speaker: Dr. Clark is director of Bioclear Learning Centers International. He founded the Academy of Microscope Enhanced Dentistry, creates curriculum for dental schools, and has lectured in twenty-seven countries. He developed the Bioclear Matrix System for placement of biologically appropriate, esthetically pleasing direct composite restorations for facilitating Injection Molding of the Clark Class I and Class II preparations, diastema closure and black triangle elimination combined with papilla regeneration. He is actively collaborating with schools to move beyond the tragically outdated GV Black cavity preparations. The Clark Class I and Clark Class II preparations and injection molded restorations (non-retentive, compression based and infinity edge margins) have been confirmed in multiple studies. He owns several patents. He and Dr. John Khademi are acknowledged as fathers of Minimally Invasive Endodontics, which at first was rejected by most North American endodontists but is now being embraced by the mainstream. He published the first classification system for dentin and enamel cracks based on sixteen power magnification. He has conducted studies on cracked teeth. He has designed numerous instruments, burs, wedges, matrices, separators, and equipment and has written chapters for both esthetic dentistry and endodontic textbooks. Dr. Clark is a 1986 graduate of the University of Washington School of Dentistry.
