Course Overview

Patients have traditionally sought treatment when concerned with the way their teeth look, function or feel. Over the past few decades, esthetics increasingly motivates patients to seek treatment. Practitioners must learn to satisfy their patients’ increasing esthetic demands at the same time they assimilate an increasing amount of information regarding diagnostics, materials and techniques. With the right approach, highly esthetic outcomes can be achieved at the same time treatment outcomes are engineered for long term success.


  • Learn how to effectively incorporate esthetics into a comprehensive diagnosis.
  • Understand smile analysis and its importance in guiding treatment decisions.
  • Learn to incorporate functional, structural and periodontal considerations into developing a treatment plan.
  • Learn treatment approaches that manage or reduce functional risk and improve long term prognosis.
