About the course

The Essential Course Hands-on Series

The Essential Course Hands-on series of courses teaches dentists how to examine, diagnose, treatment-plan, and treat every patient.

Covering simple to complex cases, the course is taught over three comprehensive two-day modules, with the majority of time focussed on hands-on training and implementation.

The courses are held in English by Dr. Ian Buckle.


This course explores a step-by-step process for predictable treatment planning. 

This program will work through different treatment planning situations, including localised anterior tooth wear, generalised tooth wear, and ortho-restorative cases. 

We will examine different treatment options, including reshaping restorations and provisional restorations (equilibration), repositioning (orthodontics), restorative and surgical. 

There will also be an opportunity for delegates to present and discuss their cases.


During the hands-on course, you will learn:

  • A step-by-step approach to 2D treatment planning (smile design)

  • How to use this information to develop the Additive Mockup Smile (AMS) - trial smile

  • How to use the AMS to perfect upper incisal edge position, lower incisal edge position and vertical dimension

  • How to use this information to create a 3D Diagnostic wax-up that satisfies all the patient’s functional and aesthetic requirements

  • How to communicate with the digital dental technician to create the digital wax-up

  • Why printing the wax-up will make the process more efficient, productive and affordable

  • How to work with other team members so that you spend your time most effectively
