Carotid Intima-Media Thickness
Everyone attending the Nebraska Dental Association Conference will have the opportunity to have the new CIMT (carotid intima-media thickness) test performed. This is a noninvasive ultrasound of your neck arteries that can see cardiovascular disease long before other more traditional tests can. And no, this is not the neck ultrasound test you may have had before. This new technology actually looks at the health of the interior of your artery wall, not just blood flow. This goes well beyond anything offered anywhere else. And it's now been endorsed by the American Heart Association
A technician will be providing the CIMT test on April 27th. The test only takes ten minutes. No preparation is necessary, but only 40 timeslots are available. You must make an appointment to reserve your space. Your investment is $125 for the test and results. Call David Meinz at 407-854-8108 to reserve your place.

Anterior Esthetic Techniques & Materials
Accomplishing exquisite anterior restorative results is a combination of preparation technique and materials selections. This program will present an approach to plan margin placement and tooth reduction to accomplish the proposed tooth position, contour and color of the new restoration as well as assuring functional success. It is challenging to select from one of the many choices of esthetic restorative materials that are available. We will discuss the esthetic and functional parameters of each material to facilitate appropriate material selection. An efficient and effective process for streamlining tooth preparation will be presented.
