The title of this years RIPE Symposium is Comprehensive Aesthetics and our focus is about achieving beauty with well engineered foundations and a long lasting result.

All the heavyweights of RIPE will be there, Ricardo Kern, Mark Bowes, Dale Rosenbach, Alina Ruzanova, Lincoln Harris just to name a few.

The focus, like that of RIPE itself, is not just one on aspect of dentistry. Like a real practice, we need to focus on many aspects.

To produce a comprehensively aesthetic result, you need to have beautiful planning. You need to carry our the procedures with excellence. You need to engineer the foundations so that you build on something solid. 

And most of all, the focus that beauty, without longevity, is disaster. Only a focus on things that have a good chance of long term success are worthy of learning.

2017 RIPE Symposium...

Hosted by Restoring Excellence

Known for its high-quality content and events, Restoring Excellence is one of the world leaders of live and online dental education. Founded by Dr Lincoln Harris. 

His 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.
