  • Thursday, January 4, 2016 - Social event with Boston District
  • Wednesday, February 24, 2016 - All-Day Program - The Concept for Better Smile Design, Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning & Case Acceptance with speaker, Dr. Christian Coachman
    Gillette Stadium's Optum Club

    Dr. Coachman is the scientific coordinator of the e-learning website and works as a consultant for dental companies and offices developing products and implementing concepts and has lectured and published internationally in the fields of esthetic dentistry, dental photography, oral rehabilitation, dental ceramics and implants.

    The goal of Dr. Coachman's full-day lecture is to design a smile that fits the patients functional, esthetic and emotional needs by improving the team communication and creating a real interdisciplinary treatment plan. Also increasing case acceptance is paramount by utilizing visual communication, balancing the patient's expectation and increasing motivation. Modern techniques and materials can be useless if the final outcome doesn't achieve the patient esthetic desires. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitations, from simple to complex cases, combining veneers, crowns and implants.

    Learning Objectives:
    • Creating and effective, complete and attractive interdisciplinary treatment plan and presenting it to the patient.
    • Understand the importance of facial analysis, the key for ideal smile design.
    • Interdisciplinary communication tools.
    • Easy and effective digital photography protocol.
