PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CURRENTLY ACTIVE PROGRAM. Dental Treatment Planning and Sequencing; The Keys to Predictable, Profitable Dentistry is organized by Continuing Education, Inc. and will be held from Sep 13 - 20, 2020 at Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Target Audience: Dentists, Dental Staff Accreditation: • 12 CE Credits Program Purpose: Many of our patients desire the creation of a beautiful smile. As dentists it is our responsibility to make beautiful teeth a part of a comprehensive plan that will create a completely healthy mouth. This involves the diagnosis and elimination of any functional or biologic disease process that could cause breakdown of any part of the stomatognathic system. While there are many aspects to this, one key is understanding how the entire system works, especially how the anterior teeth fit into their functional matrix. Changing the size and shape of the anterior teeth has major functional consequences that relate directly to their long term success. Violating key biologic and functional principles will lead to eventual failure. Dr. DuPont will share with you the concepts and principles that he has learned since the time he joined Dr. Peter E. Dawson in 1979. These principles have stood the test of time and are the keys to what he does day in and day out in his practice to help each patient achieve beautiful smiles that last by using a logical approach that can be applied to every patient and simplifies even the most difficult problems. This systematic thought process will then be applied to a range of cases as time permits. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
