Are you tired of inconsistent results from your lab technicians? Are your laboratory expenses eating away at your overhead? If you want to take greater control of the restorative dentistry in your practice, then this two-day workshop in downtown Chicago April 11-12 is for you.

Limited to 15 participants, this highly interactive presentation is designed to enable dentists to positively affect the level of dentistry they are able to provide to their patients on a daily basis. The lecture will focus on the skills and materials necessary to place direct anterior and posterior resin restorations that virtually disappear in the mouth.

This presentation is designed to teach the dentist the appropriate materials and techniques necessary to create beautiful, life-like restorations for anterior and posterior direct resin restorations.

Using the latest in nano technology composite materials, layering techniques will be reviewed that not only create properly shaped restorations, but will also offset the tooth stress issues related to polymerization shrinkage. Techniques to create tight, appropriately contoured Class II restorations will be reviewed. Layering techniques using nanofilled and microfill composites, opaquers and tints will be taught to create invisible Class IV and other anterior direct restorations. Contouring and polishing techniques of anterior and posterior composites also will be reviewed in detail.

Taught by Dr. Dennis Hartlieb, the course runs from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, April 11-12. The fee is $3,495 and includes breakfast, lunch and materials. Dr. Hartlieb, a graduate of the University of Michigan School? of Dentistry, maintains a full-time practice in the Chicago suburb of Glenview, Ill. He is an instructor at the Center for Esthetic Excellence in Chicago and is an Adjunct Associate Professor at the Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee. As a consultant for many dental manufacturers, Dr. Hartlieb is influential in the design of materials widely used in restorative dentistry. His dentistry has been seen in many dental publications and he has contributed articles on his techniques in restorative dentistry.
