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.

Dr. David Evans
Pediatric Dental OKC  |  Oklahoma City, OK

"I feel fortunate to be able to offer my patients the esthetic benefits of zirconia crowns. NuSmile's pink try-in crown system along with BioCem Cement has lessened the stresses of everyday clinical practice, while allowing Zirconia crown integration. This has revolutionized my thought process on the utilization and implementation of Zirconia in pediatric dentistry. NuSmile gives me a one-stop-shop approach for the materials I need for success. The amazing results that I've seen over the past several years have driven me to share my own experiences and encouragement with other doctors​​."

A graduate of Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine, Dr. Evans spent two years as a pediatric dentistry resident at Temple University Hospital. An adjunct faculty member at the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, Dr. Evans also frequently lectures residents and full-time clinicians on the placement of pediatric zirconia crowns. The owner of Pediatric Dentistry OKC in Oklahoma City, he has placed thousands of pediatric zirconia crowns during the course of his career.
