Clinical Application of a Scientifically-Sound Regenerative Strategy

8:30 am - 12:30 pm
Moderator: Bobby L. Butler
Speaker: Pierpaolo Cortellini
This lecture is a clinically-oriented, scientifically-sound presentation with the objective of discussing a stepby- step approach to optimize the incorporation of periodontal regeneration into a comprehensive treatment plan.
