Introduction to digital dentistry 

Ceramist & Photographer "I find that our job is more than just a simple routine, we change lives and we have satisfaction every time from this. In order to keep this memories I combined my passion for ceramics with my the love for photography so I can show how beautiful our job is. My work as a ceramist started back in 2004, though I owned my lab since 2003, I made a big step forward when I started to take photos of my work and see my mistakes from another point of view. This is how it all started back in 2012 when I thought I made a good crown and wanted to show others. I took a photo and I changed my mind after seeing how bad that crown looked on a huge screen. Since then, every piece of work I do I take photo of. My advice: Always take photos of your work because those pictures will definitely improve your work, for me it changed everything in less than 2 years."

"Esthetic Dental Team - A TEAM Approach to Predictable and Efficient Cosmetic Success"

This course is a must for the dental team who is ready to go to the next level. The changes in the marketplace require us to communicate with our patients differently. As clinical procedures in aesthetic dentistry continue to expand and improve, the role of the dental assistant has continued to evolve as well. It requires us to learn new Evidence Based Models that result in “Responsible Esthetics”, learn to work with new next generation nanotechnology materials and have a higher level of combined communication with the dental team and patients.. But mostly, it requires all members of the dental team to be aware of these new exciting times, and have the technical and verbal skills to build the practice of our dreams.
