Building on the concepts and principles of Restorative Design, this workshop captures those in the restorative process by visualizing, planning and creating a treatment outcome.
This workshop is designed to help you enjoy increased predictability and longevity in your dentistry by basing treatment decisions on how the patient created the wear, and reducing the energy in the system through occlusal design.
