Hands-On Workshop: “Zirconia REINVENTED”

We didn’t invent pediatric zirconia crowns. We did something better: 

Only our NuSmile ZR Zirconia Crown System gives you a complete zirconia solution incorporating unsurpassed esthetics, durability and bioactivity along with a guarantee of ZERO risk of saliva/blood contamination. What else would you expect from the world leader in esthetic pediatric crowns?

It’s only fitting that we also reinvented pediatric zirconia crown workshops. NuSmile ZR workshops place an unmatched emphasis on hands-on training and one-on-one attention from the world's leading independent pediatric dentists. You won't just listen and watch; you'll roll up your sleeves and master our Express Prep technique for predictable and fast (4 minute) crown placement for every primary tooth position. You’ll also learn all you need to know about diagnosis, treatment planning, common errors, troubleshooting and more. The result: you'll be equipped to start implementing what you learn the minute you return to your practice.

"I was one of the very first users of the first Pediatric Zirconia crowns on the market. Having been frustrated by the poor fit, shape and esthetics, I was thrilled when I found NuSmile and their complete system with Try-In crowns and BioCem Cement. They really did their research by listening to what Pediatric Dentists need to be successful. It’s worked great for me! I now teach the NuSmile ZR system and look forward to helping you at an upcoming NuSmile workshop."

Dr. David Salar is a board certified pediatric dentist who believes in providing dental care in a gentle and compassionate manner. After graduating from Oregon Health and Sciences University with a DMD degree, Dr. Salar initially worked as a general dentist in the greater Seattle area. He soon discovered the challenges that parents were facing in finding a pediatric dentist that would treat their children in a gentle, atraumatic manner. During his tenure there, he worked on dental materials research that was later published in the Journal of the American Dental Association. Dr. Salar firmly believes that children deserve to have esthetic dental restorations and he continues to work diligently to help make this a reality.
