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 3

In this final module, we will explore a structured approach to contouring and polishing restorations.We will investigate the different approaches to restoration techniques and preparation approaches, including direct vs indirect restorations, minimal and no-prep restorations and adhesive vs traditional preparation approaches and much more. 

During the two-day hands-on program, we will discuss:

  • The importance of design-driven restoration

  • Minimal and no-prep restoration

  • Direct vs indirect restorationsHow to make matrices from the diagnostic wax-up to deliver composite and provisional restorations that are aesthetic and functional

  • The “Every Other Tooth” wax-up to deliver individual restorations quickly and efficiently

  • Adhesive vs traditional preparation

  • Adhesive systems – which and why

  • Freehand, guided and fully-moulded composite techniques

  • Chairside printable and milled restorationsLaboratory communication

  • A step-by-step approach to contouring and polishing restorations
