IDEM Pre-Congress Day Workshop: Direct Resin Artistry in the Aesthetic Dental Practice with Dr Christopher Ho
In the modern age of patients demanding more aesthetic and natural looking restorations, this workshop covers the use of direct composite in the aesthetic zone.
Dr. Ho will share step-by-step procedures allowing the participant to master the artistry of beautiful direct resin restorations. The ability to sculpt and form restorations that harmonise naturally into the patient’s dentition is one that every dentist should be equipped to deal with the modern age of aesthetics and beauty. This course is a mixture of lecture and workshop giving attendees practical hands-on experience. Attendees will take home techniques learnt and will be able to immediately adopt these into their practice.
