We all have cases that we love, ones that make us proud. Then there are the others, the ones you wish you could forget. We all have them and wish we could have done something differently. What if you could see how cases differently and plan them for both esthetic and functional success with confidence? What if you and the specialists with whom you work could have a method to look at your cases the same way every time so that you could always be on the same page? This program will help both the general practitioner and the specialist create outcomes for their patients that are predictable and will have longevity. You will take home pearls that you can put to use the very next day in our practice!
You will learn:
The basics of Facially Generated Treatment Planning-The Spear Method
Communication tools that will help your patient see the need for higher levels of care.
Esthetics or function? Which comes first?
Signs of occlusal doom
8 steps to esthetic success
