    The Merrimack District Dental Society is excited to offer this full-day presentation (7 CEUs).

    With today's continued evolution of techniques and materials, the esthetic restorative dentist has an opportunity to create esthetically pleasing treatment outcomes like never before. Yet, selecting the best-suited treatment option for the clinical situation at hand can sometimes be a challenging task. This course will provide a step-by-step approach from diagnosis and treatment planning, to tooth preparations and delivery protocols, esthetic dental implant treatment, for simple treatments to the more complex interdisciplinary treatment approaches.

    • The importance and protocols of patient management of the esthetically motivated patient.
    • Preparation protocols for the indirect restorations that maximize esthetics and longevity.
    • Sequencing of interdisciplinary care for complex esthetic and dental implant treatments.
