Perio-Prosth Comprehensive Care: A Clinical Approach to Restoring Aesthetics, Occlusion and Functionality

This interactive “live” patient treatment program exposes the dental clinician to a thorough understanding and diagnostic approach to comprehensive clinical dental care.  Participants will be introduced to a variety of the latest concepts, materials and clinical techniques with a focus on proven periodontal and restorative practices. Interactive lectures, workshops, case discussions, patient demonstrations performed by faculty and “hands-on” patient treatment opportunities will provide a foundation to build upon.   Smile design and aesthetic periodontal therapy including aesthetic crown lengthening and gingival augmentation techniques including implant therapy will be implemented to maximize patient satisfaction and clinical outcome.  Patient selection, treatment planning, sequence of treatment will be explored and examined in best meeting the functional and aesthetic needs of the patient.

Completion of this program will allow participants to develop both confidence and skills to achieve predicable clinical results from simple to complex cases.  This program provides a “must have” talent for any dentist in today’s competitive market place.
