Hands-On Course Details
During the first portion of the course, Dr. Braun will present case studies and relevant materials supporting his practical approach to Class IIs. Methods and materials for eliminating post op sensitivity will be reviewed as well as how to achieve optimal interproximal contacts and contour.

Then, it’s time to break out the typodont, latest composite, bonding agent and matrix system. Dr. Braun will take you step-by-step through a M.O. restoration. Particular attention will be placed on taking maximum advantage of the new and unique materials provided for this course. Then, he will work with you on a predictable technique for M.O./D.O. back-to-back restorations that will ensure timesaving and predictable results on these more challenging cases. If time allows, Dr. Braun will work with you on a simplified Class III technique.

All the materials provided with the course fee are yours to keep so that you can immediately implement your new skills!
