“Additive Dentistry, Black Triangles"
Esthetic and restorative bias leads to irreversible and amputative procedures and sometimes the wrong treatment. To highlight the problem, Dr. Clark will demonstrate a rapidly expanding discipline, that of treating Black Triangles. Additive dentistry via injection molding of heated composite into anatomic tooth forms for monolithic restorations that rival ceramics, is a paradigm shift.

He has designed numerous instruments, burs, wedges, matrices, separators and equipment and has written chapters for both esthetic dentistry and endodontic textbooks.
