(Brea, CA) – VITA recently announced its partnership with the California Center for Advanced Dental Studies (CCADS) as one of their primary benefactors. The partnership will allow VITA to develop course curriculum with CCADS in several core competencies, including restorative esthetics and shade communication. CCADS is a unique post graduate dental education program that offers world class training, a high level of live, hands-on clinical experience, year-round support and mentorship and a distinctive learning environment with locally delivered programs.
The CCADS program is composed of two key parts: The Core Excellency Series, consisting of a 1-day, Hands-on Typodont course, a 4-day, Level 2 Live Patient Hands-on course, a 4-day, Level 3 Live Patient Hands-on course and the CCADS Study Clubs. The level of hands-on work CCADS provides and the support participants receive during training from their instructors, peers, program managers and laboratory staff has made the program a top choice for continuing dental education.
“As a global leader in restorative dentistry, VITA will be working with CCADS to develop curriculum that adds to their already dynamic education program,” explains Gil Villavecer, Vice President, Business Development for Vident. “We see this partnership as in ideal fit between the two companies, allowing us to pursue our mutual goal of advancing esthetic dentistry.”
Vident has been a provider of innovative dental products since 1985 and is the North American subsidiary of VITA, manufacturer of the internationally recognized Classical Shade Guide, 3D-Master Shade System and quality VITA restorative materials.
