He is a diehard Red Sox fan, an avid reader, a not quite adequate golfer, and a graduate of the Dale Carnegie Institute, Starfleet Academy, and the Landmark Education Forum and Curriculum for Living. Dr. Zase received a B.A. from Boston University and his D.M.D. from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. A former clinical instructor in restorative dentistry at Tufts, he is guest lecturer in cosmetic dentistry at the University of Connecticut, Nova Southeastern, New York University, and Louisiana State University Dental Schools. He has published over sixty dental articles, has served on the editorial or review boards of The Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry, Contemporary Esthetics, and General Dentistry magazines, and lectures internationally on cosmetic dentistry. 

He is one of about a dozen dentists in the world to have both a Mastership from the Academy of General Dentistry and an Accreditation in Cosmetics from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He practices in the Colchester Dental Group and is the only dentist in the greater Hartford area Accredited by the AACD. He was the 2006-2007 President of the AACD, the largest cosmetic dentistry organization in the world. He serves on the AACD Board of Accreditation Examiners and mentors Accreditation candidates. At the AACD, he was one of the developers of both the University Advisory Council and the Private Education Advisory Council to help spread the teaching of cosmetic dentistry to dental students at all stages of their careers. Dr. Zase was the 2015 recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award by the AACD. He is also the President of the New England Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

He has developed numerous techniques and instruments that are currently used in modern cosmetic dentistry. He was inducted into the Dental Hall of Fame by the genR8TNext Internet dental community (now the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics). He has also been granted fellowships in the American College of Dentists (FACD), the Pierre Fauchard Academy, and the International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics (FADFE), and the AGD has honored him with the Lifetime Learning and Service Recognition Award for his contributions to dentistry and dental education. He was just selected by Dentistry Today magazine as one of the Top Clinicians in Dental Continuing Education for the tenth year in a row. Dr. Zase lives in Glastonbury, Connecticut, practices in the Colchester Dental Group and is available online at Martyzase@aol.com

Target Audience
Dentists, Dental Staff
Program Purpose / Objectives
This course is designed to help those dentists who are in the process of converting their practices to include more cosmetic dentistry procedures. The lecture gives many tips on how to do cosmetic dentistry better and more efficiently. Often we defer doing cosmetic procedures because we don't know how to fix potential problems, so many suggestions have been included on what to do when things go wrong.

This high quality wide screen PowerPoint presentation begins by reviewing basic adhesive dentistry techniques while explaining a unique method of performing microdentistry, and then continually builds on the knowledge gained with each succeeding and more complex subject.

Dr. Zase brings a unique teaching foundation since he is one of only a dozen dentists in the world who has attained both his Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry and is also Accredited in Cosmetics by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He is also an Accreditation Examiner and was President of the AACD (2006-2007).

Techniques and tips are included in the following topics:
  • The Mini-Prep: a minimally invasive technique for restoring incipient carious lesions
  • Posterior Composites: predictable contacts, aesthetic tips, preventing overhangs, achieving zero sensitivity
  • Invisibly Restoring Fractured Incisors: opaquing and adhesive techniques
  • Zero sensitivity tooth whitening utilizing pre-whiteners
  • Porcelain Onlays and Crowns: easy to use cements, repairing and preventing minor marginal defects, opaquing metal, invisible margins;
  • Smile Design: visualizing and understanding the principles
  • Porcelain Veneers: modifying shades, laboratory communication to get what you want; repairing (closing) margins
  • Natural and Aesthetic Bridges: ovate pontic design, tissue design, repairing fractured porcelain
  • Patient Communication: the principle of asking, cosmetic imaging.
  • And countless other pearls to put into your practice tomorrow
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Ketchikan, Alaska - Immerse yourself in Tlingit Indian culture as you view the world's largest collection of totem poles; kayak the colorful waterfront.

Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier - One of Alaska's lesser-known gems, Endicott Arm Fjord marks the southern edge of Fords Terror Wilderness area. As you drift through its 30 -mile-long stretch, you can't help but be awed by the sorrounding granite cliffs, mountain valleys and dozens of gushing waterfalls. Drifting icebergs, deep blue waters and a spectacular tidewater glacier only add to this natural spectacle's appeal.

Victoria, British Columbia - Stroll through the charming downtown of this very British city, with its double-decker buses, turreted castles, fine British woolens, tea and china. Or, just outside the city, visit the lush flora and fauna of Butchart Gardens.
