Course Overview
New materials, technology and techniques are developing at such a rapid pace that practitioners can be overwhelmed. Add to this the increased expectations of esthetic patients and the clinical performance of materials and the entire experience can be challenging. This program will describe changes that have occurred over the last several years in the esthetic area and discuss patient factors that can significantly impact clinical success. New developments in technology and techniques will be outlined and demonstrated. Strategies and future trends that can keep you on the "cutting edge" will be presented. Additionally, my top ten list of things to have or do in order to be competitive in the esthetic arena will be shared.

Learning Objectives
At the end of this course, participants should be better able to:

  • Gain a working knowledge of the new advances in materials in the esthetic area.
  • Understand the trends and developments that lay ahead and develop strategies to adapt to these changes.
  • Gain better insight into what motivates the esthetic patient and how to deal with difficult clinical situations.
