Great reminder that caries is an infectious disease, relevant in this age of Covid vaccines being developed so quickly.
Facsinating course about preventing caries with a vaccine, especially timely with all the constant press about the Covid vaccines. Pretty soon patients will only need a hygienist and an orthodontist- no more cavities to fill!
Amazing more is not written about this when all these Covid vaccines are being developed so quickly. Lots of insight regarding a vaccine that could change the face of restorative dentistry.
Kerry Hanson it is great to get this information
