This hands-on programme will teach each participant to perform anterior restorative procedures at the highest level. All direct and indirect options for the restoration of anterior teeth will be discussed in this programme.
Through lecture, patient video, and hands-on each participant will gain mastery with anterior direct resin veneers, stacked and pressed ceramic veneers, pressed ceramic crowns, anterior zirconia crowns and bridges, and porcelain fused to metal. You will learn which material should be considered for each individual patient circumstance. You will utilise digital photographs in conjunction with the mounted diagnostic models to visualise the necessary functional and aesthetic changes, and create a diagnostic wax-up. You will learn how to create preparation reduction guides, and provisional matrixes to guide them through the preparation appointment. Special emphasis will be placed on contouring the provisional restoration, and why this is key to long-term functional and aesthetic success. Finally, cementation and adhesive options will be understood and discussed in detail so that the proper delivery option is matched with each material.

"The Dawson Academy core curriculum is an investment in yourself and your team, and requires a commitment to continually improving the standard of care that we provide to our patients. Improving the predictability of our treatment outcomes will pay dividends in the future. Attendance at each module was a 650-mile round trip for me on each occasion, but it was definitely worth it."
"It's amazing how 3 days can change the way you practice for life. I had so many light bulb moments.... truly fantastic how something that at first look is incredibly complicated can be broken down into a few basic lists that make it so predicable every time. Thank you for your time and your passion is inspirational, I genuinely feel privileged to have attended your course."
"I want to thank you and your entire staff for the world class education. It has changed my dentistry immensely. I have been able to help lots of people with their occlusal problems, and I have been able to create beautiful smiles that I would not have had a clue about only years earlier."
