He served on the ADA Council of Scientific Affairs from 2010 to 2014, and as chair of the CAMBRA coalition.  The California Dental Association Foundation presented him with the Dugoni Award for “Outstanding contributions to dental education,” and in 2016 he was appointed the consumer advocate on the United States Food and Drug Administration Dental Products Panel. 


Sometimes it seems as though our patients don’t grasp the basic concept of home care. Other times our patients with impeccable hygiene develop rampant decay and we feel helpless because we can’t figure out what’s going on. The mouth is a remarkable environment that cariologists are finally beginning to understand, and so can you. Come learn everything you didn’t know about plaque and the amazing organisms that make the mouth a wonderful place to work.

 Course Objectives:

  • Explain the mixed ecological approach to caries causation
  • Apply Evidence Based and novel preventive therapies
  • Quickly identify high caries risk patients before they develop disease
  • Stop “watching” lesions and see them get smaller
