Course Overview

Jason Smithson, BDS

Instructor Jason Smithson, BDS

AGD Codes: Coming soon
8:00 am to 5:00 pm each day

Treat a discolored lateral, a peg lateral, a Class IV, and close a diastema in one arch simultaneously: a real-life clinical scenario. In this highly interactive class, 75% of your time will be spent working hands-on.

This Master Class allows the experienced practitioner to confidently approach and create a treatment plan for more challenging anterior cases with direct resin with the combination of opaquers, artistic tints, and advanced matrixing techniques.

Hands-On Component:
In this highly practical class, all aspects will be covered on a single typodont model in a user-friendly manner, which is applicable to the general practitioner and specialist alike. Dr. Smithson throughout will carry out each exercise in a stage-by-stage Follow the Leader fashion with close support. The approach is casual, and delegates are encouraged to ask questions as they work.
