NDBC5: MacGyver Restorative Moves: Tips, tricks and everyday restorative magic


Fixing the problem in front of you with the materials you have available. That’s the MacGyver way. It involves a crucial set of problem solving skills we all need to succeed in practice, and we do not learn them in dental school. Restorative creativity is a vital but underappreciated aspect of general dentistry and it can take years to develop on your own.

Dr Rubinstein has been perfecting his restorative bag of tricks for nearly 3 decades in practice, and in this program he will share some of the most important lessons he has learned along the way. Afterwards, you’ll have a new set of tools and techniques you can begin using immediately.
