The purpose of this course is to take people through the steps of a partial or complete rehabilitation. Acknowledging that there are many great courses that cover many details in theory, this course will be mostly focused on the practical aspects.
You will need to attend the pre-requisite treatment planning course in May. This will allow you the skills to prescribe a wax up and have it done before you arrive for the rehab course.
Participants will visit my office at Bargara three times August, September and October. You will need to bring a patient for two or three of those visits, depending on the case. Ongoing mentorship via the internet, email and phone will continue for 12 months from the start of the program. (The pre-requisite treatment planning course). My assisting staff will be available so that you can learn some six handed dentistry techniques (if you don’t do it already) and to help you source any of the materials we use that you find helpful.
