Five Axioms To Exceptional Anterior Resin Composite Restorations
Course Outline:
Direct resin composites are a very important part of any dental practice nowadays. These restorations provide patients with minimally invasive restorations that preserve tooth structure while providing esthetics, longevity and function; they are personally rewarding and cost effective. However, dental practitioners face difficulties while bonding and placing these restorations. The 5 axioms: shade selection, layering style, cavity preparation, layering and contouring & polishing will provide the practitioner with a step-by-step approach to produce predictable and highly esthetic anterior resin composite restorations in everyday practice.

The Single Tooth Dilemma: Tips and Tricks To Solving the Single Tooth Mystery
Course Outline:
With minimal invasive dentistry and responsible esthetics alive and well in dentistry today, more and more patients are seeking the least invasive treatment while still demanding the highest level of cosmetic care. This could leave even the most skilled clinician in a tough situation, especially when trying to match a single tooth to the remaining dentition in a seamless fashion. This lecture will focus on responsible esthetics, clinical tips to help any clinician with single tooth dentistry, as well as two case presentations focusing on a single veneer and a single anterior implant crown.
The Following Topics Will Be Discussed:
• Review objectives that define dental esthetics
• Must haves in your armamentarium for esthetic success

Everything But The Crown
Course Outline:
An important but at times, disproportionate amount of time is spent in dental CE addressing modern ceramics, material selection & prescription, and final restoration cementation vs bonding. This 2 hour presentation aims to fill the gap for many of the very critical sub-procedures that are often neglected or glossed over in programs. The Doctor still has to get from point A to B daily when it comes to contemporary Crown and Bridge procedures.
The Following Topics Will Be Discussed:
• Learn how to handle complex buildups, modern philosophies on post and core and substrate masking
• Tissue management for success – capturing an accurate impression “the first time, every time”
• Advanced provisional fabrication techniques – from routine crowns to contemporary prep designs which focus on tooth conservation which often equals provisional loss, through veneer provisionals and intermediate term prototypes. Let’s all learn together through an interactive program with audience members sharing their most challenging clinical dilemmas!
