Episode 38: The DEJ/DEC and Adhesive Dentistry

About This Course

You will earn 0.75 hours of CE.

Dr. Schiffenhaus will discuss the complex inter-workings of the dentin enamel complex (DEC or DEJ) and make a compelling argument for how it functions as an organ. A fundamental understanding for the DEC/DEJ is necessary for understanding how to properly practice advanced adhesive dentistry. Why? Because, the DEC/DEJ is nature’s perfect bonding of enamel to dentin. Biomimetic dentists aim to mimic this biological structure in their restorations. In this course, you will take a quiz per each episode of the dental digest podcast and then obtain CE credit. To read more about our refund/cancellation policy click here. To contact us click here.
