Course Description

In today’s ever-changing economic environment, the dentist must continue to provide a quality service to the patient, yet remain profitable. Consistent, predictable, clinical techniques to create quality aesthetic and functional dental restorations in a time efficient manner are of paramount importance for a healthy practice. Effective use of emerging technologies in dentistry will help to differentiate your practice in the marketplace. Chair time is our most precious commodity so profitability starts by working efficient and working smart.

In this technique-filled seminar, Dr. Lowe will teach you the skills you need to refine your restorations to a level that will help you create consistent quality. New technologies and techniques will be discussed along with how implementation of these technologies can help the “bottom line” of your practice. A discussion regarding the latest dental materials and delivery modalities will help in treatment planning even the most difficult functional and aesthetically challenging cases.

Don’t miss this technique-oriented seminar that is geared toward delivering useful clinical information that can be implemented in practice immediately, having a positive impact on the “bottom line” of your practice!

Course Objectives

Each Participant will learn:

  • How to use some of the latest composite and bioactive restorative materials to save time and create excellent clinical results
  • How to refine techniques to create “perfect” master impressions and have successful cementation of all types of aesthetic restorations.
  • Unique options to ceramic for indirect aesthetic restorations in anterior region.
  • How to “orthodontically” prepare teeth systematically to correct the clinical crown orientation to correct tooth misalignment when patients decide conventional orthodontics is not for them.
