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.

About the Essential Course 1

A comprehensive examination is the basis of every treatment plan. It is also the key to avoiding failure and managing patient expectations. 

During the course you will learn:

  • How to take an effective history

  • The 6 keys to a comprehensive examination: Teeth – Function – Periodontal - Cancer – Airway - Aesthetics

  • Photography as a record, to aid patient engagement and treatment planning

  • How to find and record a Stable Condylar Position (centric relation)

  • How and when to mount models – analogue and digital

  • Patient communication – summary of findings

  • How to discover if the patient is a “biological” patient or a “comprehensive” patient

  • Smile design basics and how to use digital technology to quickly help the patient understand the possibilities

  • The power of the Additive Mockup Smile (ADDm©) 

  • Which splint to use in every situation

  • How to fabricate, fit and adjust a mid point splint

  • How to fabricate, fit and adjust a full coverage splint

To aid continued learning and progress you will be given an assignment to be completed before the next module.
