DAY 2 | 26 September 2020

Title: Articulator Selection in Restorative Dentistry | Faculty: Prof. Paul Tipton, Dr. Adam Toft & Dr. Ashish Rayarel | Time: 09:00 – 18:00

This course is a step-by-step programme in the form of practical sessions, lectures, and demonstrations- delivering the Foundation for Private Dentistry. The course will take you through the theoretical, scientific and engineering principles behind restorative dentistry. The course is ideal if you are:

  • Hoping to acquire new skills and build confidence to take on more complex cases
  • An NHS practitioner and want to increase your private income or move fully into private practice
  • A Principal looking for a course to update your skills using the latest techniques and materials and, in these modern times, help avoid litigation

It is also a perfect “refresher” course if you feel that your knowledge and techniques have become a little dated. The field of restorative and cosmetic dentistry is advancing at a rapid rate in terms of techniques and the materials available. We continually update our courses to ensure our delegates have a competitive edge in the market.
