Whitening and resin infiltration training (24 June)
How to remove white spots from teeth using icon resin infiltration
What to expect
Join Linda Greenwall online for a live demonstration and follow along at home with materials provided.
White spot markings on teeth are very common and there has been an increase in incidences of between 25% and 40% of teeth erupting with these white markings on. Many of the markings are alarming to young patients and dentists need to learn the strategies to deal with these white markings on teeth.
This exciting and unique hands-on training session will offer each participant the opportunity to receive online hands-on training in resin infiltration and removal of white spots in the comfort of their own home, while being trained and taught in a small group by Linda Greenwall.
Each delegate will be sent a specially prepared hamper with a dental model, an icon resin kit and everything that you need to use during the hands-on section of the course. Each delegate will need to provide their own curing light and their own PPE. Delegates will be sent a tray set-up to prepare beforehand for the course.
During the evening there'll be a competition to win a copy of Dr Greenwall’s Book "Success Strategies for the Aesthetic Dental Practice" worth £125.
