Modern dentists have developed vast knowledge in esthetics, occlusion and
restorative dentistry. However, when presented with a complex case, many
clinicians have difficulty deciding where to start and what is the proper sequence
for treatment. Learn to apply a time-tested system for diagnosis and treatment
sequencing of complex esthetic-restorative cases with an emphasis on segmental
restoration. This approach is often more technically achievable for the clinician
and an important step toward efficiency in today’s economy.

Diagnosis, treatment planning and staging of complex cases can be the most
challenging aspect of restorative practice. Spending time with diagnostic patient
information, photographs and mounted diagnostic casts is the best way to
develop a treatment plan and establish a proposed final result. This preoperative
time spent translates to extreme confidence during the consultation and helps
facilitate clinical treatment. In this course, participants will be guided through an
actual treatment planning exercise by manipulating instruments and materials for
diagnostic waxing.
