When we discuss the "bookends" of doing comprehensive esthetic dentistry, what comes to mind for you? My new interactive AACD CEntral course illustrates and explains the basic fundamentals for being successful with the “bookends” of doing comprehensive esthetic dentistry, beginning with consultation and case acceptance for comprehensive esthetic cases at one end, and maintenance of the final result at the other end.




In this one-credit self-study course made just for AACD members, we will

  • Learn communication skills and techniques
  • Review the sequential protocol necessary to develop a definitive treatment plan
  • Discuss what is required to maintain the completed therapy to ensure predictable longevity

I hope you will consider logging in and enrolling in my new course, The Bookends of Comprehensive Dentistry today.
