Dr. Richard Young received his dental training at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1985.  He is an Assistant Professor of General Dentistry at LLUSD where he lectures for and co-directs the D4 esthetics program. Dr. Young was a very early adopter of advanced adhesion techniques in dentistry and has acquired a wealth of knowledge and clinical experience on minimally invasive dentistry. He has also used photography in his practice for 37 years.  He is known for his expertise in digital photography and has inspired countless colleagues to adopt digital photography in their practices.  He lectures and gives hands-on workshops internationally on both advanced adhesive dentistry (often referred to now as “Biomimetic), injection molding techniques for composite, and digital photography. Dr. Young maintains a private practice with his wife focusing on esthetic and minimally invasive dentistry.  He has many interests outside of dentistry and spends as much time as possible with his family enjoying activities centered around the outdoors.

This course was created by 36 years of passion for Adhesion and Composite Dentistry.  Dr.  Young will present, in a "wet fingered " dentist's way, the marriage of modern materials and techniques, with researched concepts of minimally invasive dentistry (often referred to as Biomimetic Dentistry today) that date back to the mid 80’s.  Modern matrix systems utilizing injection molding techniques, will be combined with IDS, resin coating,  and stress reduction protocols to create the “super composite”.  Other techniques such as tooth fragment replacement, which was considered radically extreme in the late 80’s and today is still considered pushing the envelope by many, will be shown as well.

OBJECTIVES: At the completion of the course, participants will be able to understand:

  • What IDS (Immediate Dentin Sealing) and resin coating is and how they solve almost all problems with adhesive dentistry.

  • How to combine IDS with injection molded composites, it will change your posterior and anterior composites forever. Hint: It's all in the matrix.

  • How to treat the dreaded Black Triangle

  • How to preserve severely broken down teeth with direct injection molded composite. 

  • How to use the best restorative material——Tooth fragments!!
