Do you struggle striking a balance between speed, efficiency and quality?

We know dentistry is hard. And restorative dentistry can be some of the most frustrating procedures you’ll do.

  • Is isolating the tooth negatively impacting efficiency or effectiveness?


This course builds on your prior knowledge to master restorative dentistry techniques. You don’t need to sacrifice speed for quality. This series will help you create more predictable work with less stress and improve your earning potential.

Non-Implant Replacement Options – Single Missing Tooth

Dr Michael Frazis

In dentistry, as we progress in our career we tend to start to narrow our focus on bigger and more expensive treatment options.

As implants are a skill that everyone wants to master, a lot have forgotten that they are not a one size fits all kind of option.  

It is important for a clinician to be well versed in a multitude of treatment options rather than continuously narrowing their focus as they do more and more CPD.

This lecture aims to return to the forgotten aspects of prosthodontics that used to be applied to replace missing teeth in the “dark ages” before implants. Dr Frazis will discuss and demonstrate:: 

  • Various treatment options that are possible as well as step by step guides in their planning and fabrication. Treatment options to become well rounded clinicians. 
  • Implants are not the only option and we don’t need to put a screw in every hole.

Predictable Occlusion when Dealing with Destructive Forces

Dr Michael Melkers

Dentists traditionally haven’t been taught what to look for, how to look for it, or most importantly, why. In this class, Dr Michael Melkers will help you answer why do we need it? When is it applicable and how can it be applied in those situations

Occlusal knowledge can help give you that confidence and provide that higher level of service to patients and all the other things that we love to do.

We love aesthetics. We love reconstructing and providing hope and returning function and confidence for our patients.



No Pain, Lots of Gain

Dr Andrew Thorpe

Nothing brings more recommendations than a dentist who doesn’t hurt. However, nothing brings patient relationships down and dentist stress levels up like a patient who is in pain

In this lecture, Dr Andrew will take you on a journey, enhanced by anatomy and physiology, to help you: 

  • Understand why your analgesics are not working. Have you ever had a patient you just couldn’t get numb? How did that visit make you feel? How did the patient feel?
  • Understand why a patient is experiencing pain
  • Be empowered to tackle “difficult to numb” patients with confidence
  • Manage the pain experience of a patient, lower their own stress levels
  • Remove the fear of starting to drill. 

Ceramic Restorations from Start to Finish: Making Predictable Happen

Dr Arthur Volker

The world of dental ceramics can be difficult to navigate. This course aims to explain the proper selection criteria and usage of ceramic materials and ancillary components. In this lecture Dr Arthur Volker will teach: 

  • Material selection and the rationale and scientific evidence behind your choice. 
  • Effective communication with the laboratory and what information is needed for predictability.




Creating the Dream Team

OHT Katelyn Murray

Having a skilful and knowledgeable dental team means that the YOU (the dentist) can concentrate on what you are trained to do… dentistry.

With the right training, your dental clinic production could increase by 20 – 50% with no extra staff, no extra hours in the day. It’s how we have grown our clinic and Katelyn will show you how. 

Less time on low productive procedures means more time to do more complex cases or treatments that generate a higher production. The most valuable thing that your team can do is free up your time.

Highly productive OHT’s, hygienists, therapists and extraordinary dental assistants are the foundations that will help you build your dream team.

Katelyn Murray presents this training to help you:

  • Supercharge your dental team by learning what an OHT can do for you Train dental assistants to be efficient and highly skilled
  • Understand what systems can be easily implemented for efficiency and productivity.
  • Improve production and your business. 
  • Create an efficient team and be less stressed. 
  • Increase dental clinic production by 20-50% with no extra staff or hours from your day.

Digital Dentistry – The Future is Now

Dr Pawel Paszkiewicz

Are you digital yet?  You’re probably more than you think. Social media, digital photography, on-line knowledge sharing. Take a step ahead of traditional dentistry, making your daily work more efficient, predictable and repeatable. The future is now. It’s yours. Don’t miss it!

In this lecture, Dr Pawel will explain how to: 

  • Enter the digital world in an arranged way, showing a proper and logical sequence of gaining basic knowledge and digital gear, making your journey smooth and straight.
  • Significantly reduce the time it takes to accomplish your daily procedures, such as prosthodontics, implantology, diagnostics, or – surprisingly – endodontics.
