Technicians have limited options for continued education opportunities. With the rising transition to private dentistry, it's important we, as technicians, are able to develop and improve our skills alongside our clinical partners. They are improving patient journeys and working on their own skills to deliver the best possible treatment, but without the skill of the dental technician to collaborate efficiently, there will always be a piece missing. 

Not only does composite upgrade traditional aesthetics, its a great partner to digital dentures. The accuracy and precision of digital produces great results, but the appearance is not quite at the level private dentistry wants and needs. Pairing digital dentures with the artistic flair of gingival composite and tooth staining creates the best of both worlds, giving patients and dentists exactly what they are paying for. 

Increase profit margins, professional reputation and create a name for yourself in the aesthetic dentistry world. This course gives you all the information, practical experience and knowledge you need to take it back to your laboratory and start providing this service. It's possible to make back the course fee in less than 5 cases, making it such a great investment for yourself and your technicians.
