One of the things we dread in dentistry is case failure, and we lose sleep and
stomach lining worrying about it. Cases fail for a multitude of reasons; some minor, while others can be major disasters. The underlying cause can be esthetic, functional, biologic or sometimes behavioral. A large majority of failures can be predicted before a case begins, but we don’t look for the warning signs. This program will look at risk assessment in all four areas and present a systematic approach for examination, diagnosis, and treatment planning designed to minimize surprises and maximize case success.
