Seminars with Dr. Mitrani: Treating the Terminal Dentition and the Fully Edentulous Patient

This two-day course will explore the essentials of treatment planning and implant restorative design for the patient with terminal dentition and/or a fully edentulous condition. It will provide guidelines that can be easily implemented in practice in order to help interdisciplinary communication between the restorative dentist, the surgeon and the laboratory.

The Art of Treatment Planning and Case Presentation

Through the use of treatment-planning decision trees, gain confidence and understanding, knowing which treatment options are available for a number of common, but complex dental problems. Learn how to present the advantages and disadvantages of each option clearly to your patients, enhancing your relationship with them and their commitment to choosing what the best care is for them.

Creating An Inspired Vision for the Dental Practice

The dental practices’ landscape has considerably evolved from what it used to be 20 years ago, not only from a clinical and technological standpoint, but also from a practice management perspective. The seminar is intended to establish the importance of setting the dental practice’s vision as well as building a solid team that enables consistent execution, which is paramount to ensure achievement of practice goals.

“What students will like the most about this two-day seminar is the clarity of the concepts and the relevance of the content … they’ll feel more confident communicating with patients.”
