ON-DEMAND PRE-LECTURE, followed by live virtual workshop

What to expect

This exciting and unique course begins with an on-demand lecture to view at a time that suits you and is followed with a day-long live and interactive online workshop. Attend from wherever you choose! As part of this virtual training, our speaker, Kushal Gadhia will live-stream in real-time his treatment of a patient with localised tooth wear, using the sandwich technique.

This event will help to enhance the understanding and clinical skills required to manage localised tooth wear (TSL) using a combination of indirect and direct restorations with minimal preparation of the teeth. There will be an opportunity to ask questions in the live online workshop.

The one hour on-demand lecture must be completed in advance of joining the live virtual online training day.

The lecture will be available to view one-month prior to the practical training day.

No refunds or deductions will be offered for failure to complete the lectures.

Amazing event seeing the process clinically especially under a microscope allowed it to be very thorough.

INCREDIBLE DAY!!!! An absolutely outstanding effort by the BDA and Kushal - the day was seamless! Kushal was incredibly invested in ensuring we all got maximum benefit from the day - to ensure the attendees got the best exposure possible whilst tackling a live patient case that was so complex and involved is just something else.
