Event Details

The Dental Health Network Live Patient CPD Training is all about striving for clinical excellence when performing composite resin adult restorations. You’ll work on real adult restorative cases, with training and mentorship from master clinicians.  PLUS you’ll learn from our incredible speakers how to create an Oral Health Therapy career that you truly love.

What’s Unique About This Restorative CPD Event For OHTs?

Treat Live Patients

There’s a huge difference between working on typodonts and treating live patients. This CPD event provides hands-on experience treating real adult patients, with real-time feedback.

Taught By Practicing Clinicians

All clinical components of our CPD training are taught by real-world, practicing dentists and OHTs, including Dr David Kerr and Dr Michael Mandikos, a world-renowned expert on restorative dentistry.

Receive Ongoing Online Mentorship

Dental Health Network is the only Restorative CPD training provider to offer ongoing mentorship to OHTs via a private online group, where you can post cases with self-reflection and receive feedback to encourage ongoing improvement.

Career Growth Training

OHTs can often feel isolated and underutilised, so we’re providing powerful Breakout Sessions to help you design an Oral Health Therapy career you truly love, and ensure you make the most of your restorative skills.

Interest-Free Payment Plans

We wanted to ensure this training event is accessible for all OHTs, so we’ve partnered with Humm to deliver 12-month and 24-month interest free payment plans.


We hold ourselves and our students to a high standard. All participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance, but only those who show competence will receive a Certificate of Satisfactory Completion.

Mini-Residency Style Event

The live event has been designed to ensure all students can focus fully on learning, networking and enjoying the experience. We’ve planned everything, and your fees include accommodation and breakfasts, lunches and dinners associated with the official event schedule.

COVID Guarantee

If you are unable to attend the live training due to official COVID restrictions, lockdowns or border closures, you will have the option to refund 90% of your tuition fees. The remaining 10% covers your participation in the pre-event scientific CPD training, which is all held online.

Who is this event for?

  • OHTs who want to get predictably outstanding restorative results for your patients.

  • Any OHT who’s lacking confidence performing high-quality adult restorations.

  • Or for OHTs whose employers simply don’t know their level of competence and need to see them performing restorations outside of their own patient context.

  • You must value learning and be willing to be fully present during the fast-paced 3-day event.
