Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Without doing massive tunnel grafts, there are many applications for the soft tissue skills learnt here to add more finesse to the things I'm currently doing. Everyone can take away something from this course and start implementing these skills straight away.

Meet Restoring Excellence and RIPE founder, Dr Lincoln Harris

Dr Lincoln Harris’s focus has always been on excellence. His pursuit of excellence permeates everything he does.

He is a full-time clinician in private practice and understands the pressures and stresses that dentists face in clinical, administration and business situations.

As a teacher, Dr Harris is unique in his strong belief about the importance of learning from and sharing his own failures. Even though poor clinical outcomes are disappointing, he sees great value in them as opportunities for what can be learned and taught. Instead of sweeping them under the rug, his view is that the meticulous documentation of these cases with photos and/or video makes it possible to wring every possible benefit from that other great teacher – Hindsight.

Over the years this learning strategy from his own clinical outcomes led him all over the world pursuing extensive continuing education training in many diverse areas of dentistry.

Dr Harris does not accept dogma for the sake of an unthinking majority. He enjoys the challenge of thinking and researching, considering his own clinical observations, and drawing his own conclusions. He is well known for his frankness and his honesty.

This has compelled him to rethink dental education. His own experience has taught him that theoretical learning means little until it is applied. And so, his courses focus on hands-on training and teaching dentists to understand the underlying principles needed for making clinical decisions rather than teaching a cookie cutter approach. He believes it’s important for dentists to be able to think treatment through without needing to follow a list of steps.

With his vast and varied clinical and business knowledge, Dr Lincoln Harris is highly respected in the global dental community.

A fun and memorable course.I would highly recommend it. I learned how to simplify the path from first meeting the patient to offering an appropriate plan in a systematic way but keeping it bespoke for the patient. I enjoyed not only hearing Lincon presenting but also the calibre of the international delegates and their contributions. I'm certain this course will increase my enjoyment of dentistry. Just as many 'ah-ha!' moments as 'haha' moments!
