Module Description: According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 99.7% of Americans believe a smile is an important social asset.

Understanding and implementing the process of proper stain diagnosis is essential. This contributes to greater patient satisfaction, more realistic whitening predictions and increased practice revenue.
