Dentists find themselves living with daily stresses specific to our profession. Particularly, members of the baby boomer generation were not treated very well by their dental school faculty. Surviving the pressures of dental school and constantly being told that their work was never good enough, many dentists graduated with very low self-esteem.

Once in practice, they found that their patients feared and/or disliked the dentist. This deep-seated self-esteem issue plus the stresses of building a successful practice, managing a staff, insurance issues, laboratory problems, financial concerns and the daily pressures of attempting to please everyone including themselves, have created many physical and emotional problems for many dentists.

Performing esthetic dental procedures can be a positive life change for the patient as well as dramatically life changing for the dentist as well.

From the basic principles of smile design and smile development to the fabrication and application of indirect bonded anterior full and partial coverage(veneers) will be explained.

New developments in bonding agents and adhesive materials, including cementation options, are changing the beliefs and principles that have guided our techniques for many years. An enlightening and eye-opening discussion of these changes is included.

The scientific principles of light and color and their integration and application for shade matching and the correction of mild to moderate to severe tooth discoloration will be presented.

Many anterior esthetic problems and issues will be shown. A variety of treatment options from 'no-prep' veneers to full ceramic coverage and the logic for making those choices are to be discussed.

The detailed step by step procedures for every part of the esthetic transformation process is clearly and understandably reviewed.
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.
