Who Should Attend

This continuum is intended for dentists who desires to increase their knowledge and skills.

 

Module I: The Diagnostic Diamond

The hands-on portion of the course will take dentists through the steps to take accurate aesthetically derived facebow records, the indications for and delivery of deprogrammers, centric relations records, equilibration and occlusal guards. After this module, dentists will be able to better understand the comprehensive diagnostic process and formulate predictable and affordable treatment plans for their patients with options and the risks and benefits of each.

 

You Will Learn:

  • Understand the power of mastering a comprehensive diagnosis
  • Learn how to take an accurate CR record
  • Learn when to restore VDO and when to leave it alone
  • Be able to plan like a prosthodontist but execute within your comfort zone
  • Radiographic interpretation in the digital world

 

Module II: Materials and Methods - Direct Restorations

During this module, you will learn the latest dental materials to restore the anterior and posterior dentition, with direct materials. The hands-on portion of the course will take dentists through the steps to prepare teeth conservatively with a systems-based predictable approach. Upon completion of this module, dentists will be able to understand which material to use where and when, including logetivity estimates, preventing post-operative sensitivity and preventing premature restoration failure.

The hands-on portion of the course will take dentists through the steps to prepare teeth conservatively with a systems-based predictable approach. Upon completion of this module, dentists will be able to understand which material to use where and when, including longevity estimates, preventing post-operative sensitivity and preventing premature restoration failure.
