TOPIC: Bread and Butter of Dentistry.

VENUE: Edina Country Club, 5100 Wooddale Ave, Edina

Course Description:
Predictable Smile Design – Avoiding the Prep & Pray Approach
The Bread and Butter of any practice, if it is to endure into the new millennium, is posterior adhesive dentistry. But what will it take to do more than just survive?

In a relatively small, not so well know town of Woodinville, Washington lays a general and cosmetic dental practice. Let Dr. Koczarski show you how he has developed a hungry and unique aesthetic practice that feeds off of the staples of his general practice.

Not only are the numbers impressive, but also the quality of service and care are the basic ingredients that have produced a flavorful aesthetic practice, satisfying even the most discerning of practitioner’s palates.

The day will focus upon aesthetic, bonded, metal free posterior and anterior dentistry. Elimination of post-operative sensitivity with your posterior resin and porcelain bonded restorations. How to design the perfect smile, every time! How to avoid the dreaded “Prep & Pray” approach to anterior aesthetic smile designs. And finally, how to market aesthetic dentistry to your existing and new patient base.
