Reasons to join this course: 


This course is a unique hands-on opportunity to upgrade your skills in anterior bonded restorations. Esthetics and function are equal concerns in restor­ati­ons.

“To say this course is a game changer would be an understatement. I don't know how this information has stayed hidden from me all these years."

"Pascal and Michel are great teachers and the course has been extremely useful to me. They have explained a lot of doubts and queries in my mind about BPR (Bonded Porcelain Restorations). I am definitely more confident about approaching such cases in the future."
