COURSE SUMMARY:   Patients present daily with some remarkable challenges in our practices. The caries onslaught can be overwhelming to the patient and to us as the restorative dentist. Solutions are needed to help us get the patient off the endless cycle of secondary caries and restorative failure. In this program we will endeavor to provide a solution to this challenge, from the restorative perspective, to give you higher success capabilities in this battle of “de-bond”."



  • Identify problems in achieving long term durable restorations

  • Discuss currently available cavity washes and why they are ineffective over long term use

  • Describe technology to enhance long term restorative outcomes

  • Characterize the future of restorative dentistry and outlook for improved patient outcomes

Clifton Carey, PhD

Dr. Carey is a cariology researcher in the realm of chemistry as applied to the study of dental caries, biofilms, and more recently the study of secondary caries. He is also active in standards development both internationally (ISO) and nationally (ADA/ANSI) as the ISO convenor and U.S. chair on toothpaste, tooth bleaching products, and analytical methods for dental products as well as U.S. chair on oral rinses, denture adhesives, and fluoride varnish. He  achieved his PhD in Analytical Chemistry from the American University in Washington, DC. His over 40 years research includes the protective factors of fluoride, how and why dental restorations break, how biofilms reduce the service life of dental composites, how fluoride varnishes work to prevent caries, how to improve dental care products, caries risk factors, non-fluoride methods to prevent caries, dental forensics, orthodontic topics, and more. He also has mentored a number of graduate and dental students to engage them in research projects that have centered on caries prevention therapies. Dr. Carey studied caries detection strategies especially for the early detection of secondary caries. His professional goal is to research ways for the public to achieve better oral health.
