Extended fixed prosthodontics 1

A comprehensive short course in fixed prosthodontics
This five day course has more than 20 hours of supervised clinical simulation practice. You will be taught by dental specialists, leading university educators, a dual-qualified solicitor and dental ceramist.

Course overview

Extended Fixed Prosthodontics (EFP) has been running for 30 years ago. This course is convened by Dr Agnes Lai and run by 16 presenters and clinical supervisors. 

The curriculum for 2019 retains the core of fixed prosthodontics topics in lectures and panel discussions. In addition to insights into various interfaces with technical laboratories, removable prosthodontics, along with the presentations covering the interaction between fixed prosthodontics and other disciplines (endodontics, periodontics and orthodontics) Implant fixed prosthodontic cases and concepts are also interlaced within all relevant lectures.

Extended Fixed Prosthodontics 1 provides more than 20 hours of supervised clinical simulation practice, featuring both traditional and innovative techniques. EFP participants receive a complimentary model of various tooth preparations completed by the supervising prosthodontists, in addition to specially selected burs used by the presenting prosthodontists in their everyday practice.

The innovation for 2019 is the hybrid ‘Presenting Condition’ model which is generated via the collective input of all participating dentists prior to the beginning of the course, and is produced by our technical support. This unique model, reflecting the fixed prosthodontic curiosities of all 2019 EFP participants, forms the central clinical sample for discussion throughout the entire course week.

Fixed prosthodontics is an essential component of private general practice and EFP 2019 offers the perfect balance of comprehensive lecture material, panel discussions and related supervised clinical simulation practice.

EFP 2019 is not suitable for dentists seeking training in complex and full-mouth rehabilitation.
