Activity Description
One of the things we dread in dentistry is case failure, and we loose sleep and stomach lining worrying about it. Cases fail for a multitude of reasons; some minor while others can be major disasters. The underlying cause can be esthetic, functional, biologic or sometimes behavioral. A large majority of failures can be predicted before a case begins, but we dont look for the warning signs. This program will look at risk assessment in all four areas, and present a systematic approach for examination, diagnosis and treatment planning designed to minimize surprises and maximize case success.

Activity Objectives
At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Access Esthetic Evaluation & Risk Management
- Recognize & Managing Functional Risk

The program will be held at the UNC School of Dentistry. Registration will begin at 8:00am. The program will be held from 8:30am - 12:45pm.
