What a challenge our profession and industry faced last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and in our case at The Dawson Academy, this necessity was a quick pivot to be sure we could meet your 2020 continuing education needs.
In this webinar, discover many techniques and materials for predictable posterior restorations.
Posterior Composites can be challenging even to a seasoned clinician. Of those, the class II composite continues to be the most challenging of them all. During this presentation, some tips and techniques to improve outcomes will be shared and correlated with the current literature.
- Discuss challenges in obtaining a successful Class II restoration
- Review materials for treating interproximal cavitated carious lesions
- Describe techniques to improve Class II restorations

In this webinar you will learn the fundamentals of diagnosing and treatment planning a full arch implant-supported prosthesis.
"I wanted to share a bigger picture of the steps we take to treatment plan these cases. You will pay a big price for this on the restorative side if you don't get it right." - John C. Cranham, DDS
Determine what specific data is needed to correct incisal edge position, incisal planes, occlusal planes and vertical dimension.
Compare how occlusal design on all on 4/5/6 cases differs from occlusal design on teeth.
Outline protocols to visualize optimum implant placement, based on tooth position.
Identify the different software options available to properly plan these cases.
Watch Dr. John Cranham's webinar:
Many dentists spend decades wandering through the desert of insurance based “standard of care.” Most know there is a better way, but struggle with the WHY! Dr. Hess explains the path to a 'better way' for your patients and yourself.
- Explain how a complete examination can unlock unlimited potential in your practice
- Recall the keys to predictable results and higher practice satisfaction
- Compare the difference between treating symptoms and treating the cause
When the functional matrix of the anterior teeth are combined with the key components of anterior guidance and neutral zone, tooth position is critical to our success. Because of this, orthodontic tooth movement has become more and more important as a treatment step to solve many of the difficult functional and esthetic cases we are faced with.
Moving the teeth, especially the anterior teeth, to their ideal position, or to a better treatment position, is critical to our centric stops, our incisal edge position, our smooth lateral and protrusive function. There is a reason that orthodontics is #2 in our functional treatment options: Reshape teeth, Reposition teeth, Restore teeth and Reposition bone.
Avoid clinical failures and create a pathway to treatment predictability.
Wonder why some crowns break while others don't? Why a patient is experiencing pain, but it's difficult to pinpoint the source? Why some patients exhibit excessive wear? During this webinar, Dr. Leonard Hess will uncover surprising (but common) reasons for clinical failures and a pathway to treatment predictability and patient satisfaction.
Once we resume to business as usual in our dental offices after the current COVID-19 pandemic, we will have an onslaught of emergency patients that have been backlogged and need treatment. This webinar will discuss how to manage the emergency visit from a clinical outcome standpoint, and how to plan for definitive care.
Learn how to phase complex treatment plans with this series of steps!
This webinar explores the necessary steps to complete a case for predictable results in regards to function, phonetics and esthetics. We will present 2 cases discussing how phasing treatment will result in less breakage and costly remakes.
Records and Treatment Planning Prior
The temporary phase is the third phase in our treatment plan. At this point we've had the patient come in, and given them complete exam on that patient. Then we've taken the records we have our 2D treatment planning session, and then the 3D portion is the wax-up of that patient. During the 3D treatment planning, we are looking to find out where we want the incisal edges. We are looking at where we want the anterior guidance, and the vertical dimension. Those are the things that we work out using the 2D checklist and 3D checklist.
Tools for treatment planning are photos, pictures so that you have a clear communication. Do not forget the checklists. The Dawson Diagnostic Wizard is very important. Utilize a Digital boley gauge, safident golden proportion calipers is a neat tool to use when you are waxing or evaluating provisionals. The Whip Mix small waxer to help me wax quicky and efficiently. Then involve your specialist. I hope this helps.
