Roy and Andy, as general practitioners who know what works in practice, will pass on dozens of practical tips for how to make your dentistry more predictable, better looking and longer lasting, and make your patients think you are amazing!

Next Course: Friday/Saturday 3rd/4th June 2011 at the Academy of Clinical Excellence, Wakefield

Call us on 01457 821800 to book NOW! Or email: occlusioncourses@gmail.com

Cost: £800 + vat – course notes, refreshments and loan of equipment included

  • PRACTICAL – the only way to learn a skill you can take back to your practice and use on Monday morning
  • OCCLUSION – a subject that forms an essential consideration in every aspect of dentistry, yet is often poorly taught in the undergraduate curriculum
  • INSTRUMENTATION – unlock the mysteries of face-bows, articulators, leaf gauges, centric relation records and cast-mounting
  • SPLINTS – the why, when, how, on whom and for how long of the whole range of occlusal appliances – make anterior jigs and stabilsation splints on another participant and experience having them made on yourself
  • EQUILIBRATION – what is it and why do we do it – experience the effects of wearing a fully equilibrated stabilisation splint on yourself and others
  • DIAGNOSIS – recognising the 80% of your patients that clench or brux, and working out which 20% actually need some form of intervention from you to unlock a whole new income stream without needing any new patients
