Event 1 – Posterior Composite Restorations
Last September 2020 a course on posterior restorations was held by the Study Club of the Palm
Beaches at Ruth’s Chris restaurant in City Place, West Palm Beach. The guest speaker for the event
was Dr. Alan Atlas, restorative dentist from Philadelphia. Dr. Atlas is a worldly renowned dentist,
professor at University of Pennsylvania, that focuses his instruction in posterior composites (white
fillings) and the use of the microscope in dental practice. The all-day lecture was sponsored by
Biohorizons, Denstsply-Sirona, and Zeiss microscopes. Such lecture was well attended by a select group
of local dentists which had the opportunity to do hands-on training during the lecture. The program was
conducted using proper methods of disinfecting, social- distancing, and physical barriers. All attendees,
sponsors, and lecturer were provided masks and plexiglass/ plastic shields for protection and comfort.
We want to extend our gratitude to Dr. Atlas and the sponsors for their cooperation with such an event.
Similar events with the Study Club of the Palm Beaches have been programmed for the end of 2020
through spring of 2021.
