Much of dental care is rehabilitation following tooth loss. But some of what we have been told, read and practise is tosh.
The aim of this course is to:

  • Hone our clinical skills in the laboratory
  • Identify what is important and what is trivial
  • Come away with tips and more tips to be applied when I see patients next day.

Learning objectives

Using a discussive approach, underpinned by hands-on preparation of manikin teeth in the laboratory, at the completion of the day:

  • You have evidence that you are competent in preparing teeth
  • You have the confidence to decide what is germane and what is trivial in advanced restorative dentistry
  • Tips, tips and more tips in delivering advanced restorative dentistry. 

​​Learning content

This presentation is relevant to general practice. It will go over the principles of tooth preparation for restorative purposes of indirect restorations. It will also give an insight into may tips on the focus of advanced restorative dental techniques.

For the past 40 years, John has led and contributed to the strategic direction in dental academia. Through innovation and diligence, he has supported the development of teaching staff, postgraduate, and undergraduate students in a way that not only yields results but also brings excitement and relevance to the process.  

For the past seven years, John's focus has been the delivery of postgraduate teaching both internationally and in the UK, but at the same time make a significant contribution to undergraduate learning. Additionally, he has excelled and demonstrated strong scholarship having synthesised, evaluated, and abstracted over 800 papers, for fortnightly publications over nine years, in the British Dental Journal. 

John continues to discharge all clinical responsibilities, together with the training of many colleagues and the recording of some patient treatment journeys that are used to bring teaching alive. 
John was appointed as a Fitness to Practise Panel Member on the General Dental Council for ten years, upholding and shaping regulation of the dental profession.
