    How to Eat Candy

    Depriving cariogenic bacteria of sugar is the cornerstone of traditional caries management, yet the science of CAMBRA (Caries Management By Risk Assessment) takes cariology to a whole new level and the ability to monitor lesions over time improves clinical outcomes. If youre still telling patients to, Brush, floss, and use fluoride toothpaste youre going to be surprised by the myriad of treatment options available today. Streptococcus mutans has more to fear than stronger fluoride and more of it, as dentistry embraces oral healthcare.

    At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
     
    1.Identify risk factors leading to caries
    2.Explain the role of commensals
    3.Implement disease management in practice
    4.Safely consume a variety of candy and sugary beverages
    5.Prolong the life of restorations in all patients

    Speaker Bio: Dr. Nový is the Director of Practice Improvement at the DentaQuest Institute, and an adjunct associate professor of restorative dentistry. He served on the ADA Council of Scientific Affairs 2010-2014 and as chair of the CAMBRA Coalition through 2015. The California Dental Association Foundation presented him with the Dugoni Award for -Outstanding contributions to dental education, and in 2009, the American Dental Association awarded Dr. Nový and his office the title, Adult Preventive Care Practice of the Year.
