Extended Fixed Prosthodontics 2015 Program

Extended Fixed Prosthodontics is the most comprehensive short course in prosthodontics in Australia for dentists in general practice. Our program in 2015 will retain the core stock of everyday practice lecture topics, and includes specialists from 3 other disciplines (periodontics, endodontics and orthodontics) to discuss the various ways that fixed prosthodontics and their practice come together.

More information about the course overview, presenters, costs and registration portal available online.
