What you’ll learn

Direct Bonding – when done correctly – is truly the most impactful treatment that a dentist can provide for a patient. However, material selection can be a stressful experience – the results can be unpredictable and esthetically unacceptable. Proper shade selection, preparation, finishing and polishing are critical to the final result

Our “live patient” demonstrations are designed to improve your skills.  A step-by-step procedural approach to solving daily anterior challenges will be presented, enabling you to create natural esthetics that are sure to be appreciated by your patients and garner higher case acceptance.

Clinicians participating in the “live patient” demonstrations are required to complete Hope Dental Clinic’s volunteer processing which includes a background check, volunteer application submission and providing a copy of your current liability insurance certificate. Surgical gowns and PPE will be provided for use. Clinicians should bring loops if they are planning on hands-on participation.

Course Objectives:

  • Use our step-by-step approach to learn how to prepare teeth properly with superior engineering principles
  • Understand proper composite systems and injection molding techniques
  • Explore various finishing and polishing techniques to create natural esthetics
  • Increase your competence and confidence, resulting in higher case acceptance
