Lecture and Interactive Hands-on Workshop

The focus and awareness of esthetic dentistry has never been greater. Today’s patients have heightened expectations and desires. Understanding the desires and meeting patient’s demands has become increasing complex and challenging. Case design and case presentation will be an integral portion of the course. We will discuss useful tools than will improve patient communication and case presentation for esthetically motivated patients. This course will review the principles of facial esthetics, smile morphology and design and provide practitioners the tools necessary to deliver remarkably beautiful results. Both traditional and digital case design will be reviewed. During the hand-on portion of the program, participants will apply esthetic principles and philosophies to designing an esthetic result with a variety of different techniques. 

During this program practitioners will:

  • Gain a better understanding of facial esthetics and be able to apply those principles to clinical cases.
  • Gain better insight into what motivates the esthetic patient and how to deal with difficult clinical situations.
  • Practice esthetic design principles during the hands-on program.
  • Learn how to tackle even the most esthetically challenging clinical cases through sound case design and presentation.
