    Very nice, concise discussion, however I didn’t see any reference to primary teeth.

    Dr. Ferrier’s article on bonding for class two composites is very good. It is the first OASIS article I’ve read seriously. Will there be a follow-up article on “Getting Good Contacts”? And how about “Preventing Post-Op Sensitivity in Posterior Composites? Both would be most welcome. Such articles should be considered fundamental to dentistry and worth reviewing often.
