Esthetic dentistry has seen an absolute boom over the last 30 years. But creating beautiful smiles doesn’t end with the dentition, it involves all the surrounding soft tissues.  It’s time to bring your esthetic practice to the next level!

This intensive weekend begins with robust didactic presentations each morning. The human cadaver anatomy workshop establishes a solid foundation for the layer-by-layer review of the muscles of facial expression, arterial supply, innervation and location of nerves, fat compartments, and bony substructure. The afternoon sessions focus on live-patient treatment with one-on-one instructor guidance.
