From custom impressions trays and processed denture bases to nightguards and esthetic diagnostic/provisional restorations, this course instructs members of the dental team to handle VLC prosthodontic resins. New, easy to handle monomer-free resin formulations are shaped and cured in the dental office by team members with little or no previous laboratory experience.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Construct a custom impression tray (Triad VLC) Design and construct a dental night guard on a master mode (Iterra/ Eclipse Heat and Seat) Design and construct a max/mand. Denture base for use as a processed record base or a final denture base.

Modern dentists cannot breach the chaos of complex restorative, adhesive and remineralization dental techniques without the support of a competent team clinical team. Hygienists and clinical assistants must have a firm grasp of products and techniques that range from prevention/intervention protocols to restoration of high caries rate time bombs.
This course will classify and outline indications for the use of:
- Self-etch and total-etch adhesives
- Resin-reinforced glass ionomers
- Various classes of glass ionomers
- Recaldent and other fluoride materials used to remineralization /minimal intervention
- Composite resin restorative materials
Clinical team participants will leave knowing why their doctor would choose a certain restorative/adhesive material and the proper set-up, preparation and delivery of these materials at the chair. Team members will also explore the vital role they should play in dispensing and monitoring remineralization formulas to arrest and even repair decayed lesions.
