“2016 Class 2 Treatment

Controversies and Solutions”

Class II Treatment Techniques, Controversies, and Clinical Solutions


Drs. Peter Miles and Gerry Samson

Experienced clinicians always enjoy themselves when treatment is successful. As well, we delight in decreasing the “internal uproar” heard when treatment problems are encountered. Therefore, treatment options are essential and for the substantially challenging patients these concepts are especially crucial. Then, when faced with a lack of treatment response, the sophisticated clinician is prepared. Treatment options were planned and are easily applied. The treatment method is modified before the treatment time has become excessive and before the clinician has decided that the commodities market is more predictable than treating “yet another Class II”.

Featuring a dynamic interchange between two respected, experienced clinicians this meeting will center on evidence as well as opinion based clinical treatment and problem solving for Class II patients. Participants are assured of a motivating, provocative and entertaining experience in the realm and horizons of Class II treatment.
