As dentists, we rely not only on the materials but on our own abilities to effectively plan treatment and to diagnose based on multi-factorial situations. We must be careful in our preparation, design, and be meticulous in our bonding techniques. Failures in dentistry are frequently blamed on the materials when, in reality, user error and poor occlusal evaluation are often the culprit. In this course, we will highlight the latest information and evidence on a wide variety of topics in occlusion, esthetic dentistry and clinical procedures. Aimed at dentists and their staff, this course will provide relevant clinical information to assist dentists in their everyday practice.

• Review core principles of esthetic dentistry related to tooth form and function, tooth position, occlusal function and what you need to know to stay out of trouble
• Learn why esthetics is secondary to proper function
• Describe all-ceramic options for indirect anterior and posterior restorations
• Define digital impression making and chairside CAD/CAM
• Evaluate the advances in adhesive dentistry
• Discuss esthetic case maintenance
• Compare color selection - it’s both art and science
• Review the evidence on occlusal concepts currently in vogue including:
 CR, CO and neuromuscular occlusion as it relates to the three-dimensional concepts of biologic function
 Biologic principles of dental occlusion
• Understand the role of parafunction and sleep disorders on the longevity of dental stability
• Receive practical and cost- effective information that that can be used immediately in the practice
