1.Tired of “grinding in your cases?” Know where the joints are - review of the Anatomical Basis of CR & The Masticatory System
•Why CR is based on sound anatomy, physiology, orthopedics and not hype
•Why as dentists, we must be experts of the masticatory system and not just teeth to get predictable restorative results
2.That sinking feeling – seeing patients at recall with chipped crowns, uncemented crowns, open contacts etc- Understanding The Principles of Occlusion
•That occlusion is very practical, attainable but most importantly beneficial to dentist and patient
•The role of occlusion in EVERYDAY RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY. Clinical scenerios and explanations will be discussed
3.Surprises are nice – except when it happens after you start a case! The Comprehensive Exam
•How to assess the status of the entire masticatory system and do it in a way that is meaningful to your patient.
•How to do this in a efficient, effective manner and recognize signs of instability that can compromise restorative results.
4.Avoid the fork in the road that leads to nowhere – and it’s costly to get back! The Diagnostic Blueprint
•How to visualize the form and function of the end result prior to ever starting the case thereby eliminating stress and frustration.
•A 10-step decision making thought process for predictable diagnostic wax-ups.
•How to determine a fee that fairly compensates you and which your patient will pay with gratitude and appreciation.
5.“I don’t like the way it looks, doc, and it feels funny too”. Provisionals With A Purpose
•Using provisionals to preview all aspects of form and function and verify it is correct.
•A time-efficient and effective technique for provisional fabrication will be presented which results in minimal chairside adjustment.
•Using the provisionals to make laboratory communication matrices which guarantee you will get what you expect from your technician.
6.The no cost, bullet proof marketing tool - The Post Treatment Consultation
•The second most appointment you will ever have with your patient and how it will guarantee the future success of your practice.
7.Making it all work in today’s economy
•Sequencing without compromising and using composite for long lasting occlusal rehabilitation.
Throughout the technical aspects of this lecture are woven the philosophical, behavioral and communication skills needed to make the practice not just a comprehensive, technically excellent practice but also a “relationship-based” practice in which long term, trusting relationships are developed with our patients.

Conference Sessions generally take place during the days at sea (as cruise itinerary allows) to avoid conflicts with Ports of Call or evening entertainment.
