2014 Extended Fixed Prosthodontics

Extended Fixed Prosthodontics - 29 September/ 3 October 2014

Extended Fixed Prosthodontics is the most comprehensive short course in prosthodontics in Australia for dentists in general practice. Our curriculum in 2014 retains 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.

The 2014 Extended Fixed Prosthodontic program offers an unprecedented 20 hours of clinical simulation practice for dentists. Both traditional and innovative techniques in clinical practice are covered in detail. The 13 presenters include full-time private practice clinicians, including keynote speakers, University educators, specialist and general practitioners, a dual-qualified solicitor-dentist, and one of Sydney’s most experienced dental ceramists. Personal preferences of our materials, instrumentation and technique complement the evidence-based subject matter.

Fixed prosthodontics is an essential component of private general practice and EFP 2014 offers the perfect balance of close supervision practicals and comprehensive lecture material.

This course is suitable for general dentists who wish to:

  • Review their knowledge base and practical skills.
  • Interact closely with experienced clinicians.
  • Prepare for postgraduate coursework programs.
