255: Biomechanics

In Biomechanics, Dr. Kois shares independent research and evidence based guidelines to understand caries detection, removal and prevention; the modes and etiology of tooth structure loss; tooth preparation and design principles utilizing proven dental materials and specific protocols for their use and important laboratory protocols to achieve predictable results.

275: Implants Fixed & Removable

The use of implants in general practice has created both new levels of excitement and frustration. This course will dispel the “hype”, which is not brand specific, and will focus on what is critical for predictable success. This course presents a step-by-step approach to restoring the challenging edentulous and partially edentulous patient.

Create & Capture Composite Artistry

An in-depth 3-day course that is designed to improve the skills of dentists as it relates to photography, shade mapping, handling of composite, artistic creation and replication of natural teeth with resin. At the end of the course you will learn to artistically and clinically display your composite creations at the highest level.

Creating Superior Restorations with Composite Resin

Composite resin is sometimes considered a “Second Class Citizen” when compared to porcelain as a final restoration. The conservative nature of the material allows it to be used in a number of different clinical situations for long-term clinical results. This course will provide you with techniques that will allow you to treat a number of everyday clinical situations from the worn dentition, fractured teeth, and missing teeth for increased profitability and outstanding results.
