About the course

Since its introduction in 1864, the presumed use of rubberdam in multiple dental procedures has increased. Nevertheless, in daily practice the usage is not as widely spread as one would expect. There are many excuses not to use this simple means of isolation. The idea is simple; the practical execution is another story. The use of rubberdam requires that we, as dental professionals, plan our work efficiently and that we can communicate well with our patients. It is without any doubt mandatory to use rubberdam during endodontic procedures and adhesive pro- cedures. Furthermore, this course tells us what is possible if we ask ourselves the question: What if...

High-quality dentistry begins at the base of the pyramid. Join us for an exceptional experience where the foundation of quality treatment is taught in a fun and interactive way.

During the masterclass, numerous clinical examples will demonstrate how every isolation challenge can be addressed and categorized into one of the 4 main configurations. Step-by-step procedures explain the techniques. Tips and tricks are demonstrated in relation to restorative procedures. During the hands-on, all the procedures are practiced on phantom heads. Special isolations and combinations are also practiced. At the end of the hands-on, there will be a competition and the participants will challenge each other in “The Fast and the Furious” for the fastest isolation.

You can participate as a dentist on your own, but we very much urge you to bring your closest dental nurses (for half the fee) as much of the supra gingival procedures can be delegated to your staff saving you time and give a meaning extra skill to your dental nurse. You will work together with your nurse(s) at the same station.
