Elective Courses

Dr Buckle and The Dawson Academy faculty offer a wide range of elective programmes that will enrich your learning experience and provide supplemental training to ‘Complete Dentists’ and their staff.

Advanced Treatment Planning

CPD hours:
16
Tuition:
£1995+VAT / Early Bird: £1695+VAT

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Everyone knows how to treatment plan?

So how come it often doesn’t go quite the way we expected, particularly with complex cases?

During this course John and Ian will describe how to use a predictable step by step approach that will help you solve even the most complex of cases. You will learn by demonstration and hands on exercises how to use digital and conventional technologies to make the process as predictable and productive as possible.

The Aesthetic-Occlusal Connection Revisited

CPD hours:
8
Tuition:
£395+VAT / Early Bird: £295+VAT

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Almost 20 years ago we experienced the “Cosmetic Wave” with the advent of smile design and a proliferation of veneers.  In his “Cosmetic-Occlusal Connection” lecture of that era Dr. John Cranham described how to combine smile design with time–tested occlusal principles to achieve beautiful, long–lasting , predictable results.

In the last two decades we have moved towards a minimally invasive approach utilising orthodontics, bleaching and adhesive techniques to create the same beautiful smiles. We have also seen a huge increase in the use of dental implants and the growing use of digital technology. Perhaps surprisingly we have seen a resurgence in the use of veneers.

Understanding how to design a predictable, functional, healthy smile has never been more important.

Occlusion 101: Physiology, Anatomy and Biomechanics of Occlusion

CPD hours:
16
Tuition:
£1995+VAT / Early Bird: £1695+VAT

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The first step on the pathway to mastery of dental occlusion is acquiring a strong conceptual understanding of its scientific basis. Restorative dentistry and orthodontics always change the patient’s dental occlusion whether the dentist is aware of it or not. Even minute changes to the height or shape or the position of a tooth, change force patterns on the entire masticatory system. In turn, every change in force patterns impacts oromotor behavior.This course guides attendees through the scientific principles that are the foundation of dental occlusion. It will provide a deep understanding of neurophysiological, anatomical and biomechanical principles that dictate how and where the teeth occlude, facilitating the treatment of complex problems such as bruxism, clenching, TMD and sleep apnea.
