Course summary

This webinar series is designed to give practitioners the skillset to confidently approach more challenging anterior cases starting with transferring information from the patient to the articulator, functionally planning the smile design and occlusal scheme on the articulator and finally accurately transferring the treatment plan back from the articulator to the patients mouth in a predictable time efficient manner.

The webinar series will include:

  • Functionally Generated Smile Design. Begin with the end in mind.
  • A predictable approach to reconstruct worn broken down anterior teeth creating functional occlusions with direct resin.
  • Occlusion in relation to restorative dentistry.
  • Basic TM Joint anatomy and definition of terms (CR|MIP|Guidance).
  • Posselt’s Envelope of Function and its practical application.
  • Facebows and occlusal records.
  • Choosing the Vertical Dimension.
  • Instrumentation: when and why.
  • A whistle-stop tour of the articulator.
  • When to restore conformatively and when to reorganize.
  • Occlusal Splints an overview.
  • How to transfer information from the articulator to the mouth: accurate and repeatable.
  • Dahl- an overview. When it works and when it is not a good idea.
  • Clinical case studies – reconstruction of a worn incisor with transitional bonding, reconstruction of a worn incisor with a simplified bonding approach, reconstruction of a worn incisor using the “Natural Layering Approach”.

Throughly enjoy the course. The pre course webinars were very useful so we could focus on the practical aspects from the start. I learned a huge amount which I will be able to use to improve my patient care and gain more enjoyment from my work. I found Jason’s teaching style to be very relaxed giving me the confidence to ask questions. The learning support and feedback from Gordon and Ian was incredibly valuable. I will definitely be booking into more courses in the future. Feeling very motivated. Thank you all.

A great lesson on recreating anatomy. Ideal for young dentists and experienced clinicians alike.

This is a real must-do-course! Well organised and expertly run.

Dr Alan Hirschowitz BDS-Wits

After our first hands-on exercise, the work I was able to do was better than any I8 have ever done before. On Monday when I got into the office, all that I had learned translated immediately. I was able to bring this new skill to my patients that day. Typically I do not see such an immediate impact on my practice, but this course was different. Thank you for making me a better dentist.

The A-Z of Restorative Dentistry course with Jason Smithson provided a comprehensive update on restorative dentistry with high end outcomes in mind. Jason’s presentations were all evidence based and simultaneously managed to inspire and entertain. The course structure allowed in depth discussion on cases including our own patients. A major element of the course was hands on with clear demonstrations and support throughout.
