The Dawson Academy Core Curriculum is a post gradate mini-residency in solving even the most complex dental problems involving esthetics, occlusal problems, TMJ issues, and advanced restorative care. The principles learned can be applied to everyday dentistry or advanced dental cases.

Our mini-residency provides a customized continuing education path for dental practitioners interested in obtaining advanced knowledge and mastering skills necessary to providing complete dental care. The mini-residency provides hands-on clinical learning experiences, one-on-one instruction, and group discussion using a variety of modalities.

How the Denver Mini-Residency works

An exclusive group of dentists will study and complete the Dawson Academy Core Curriculum over a well-paced 15 month period.

This improved curriculum consists of seven core courses taken as a combination of hands-on, lecture and on-line at the renown Mountain West Dental Institute in Denver, Colorado with a final lecture and graduation completed in St. Petersburg/Clearwater Beach, Florida.

All hands-on courses will be taught by Dr. Leonard Hess, Clinical Director at The Dawson Academy.

Dr. Hess will be available throughout the 15 month period (and beyond) to support the members in implementation and clinical success.

Why mini-residencies work

The professional relationships mini-residencies build can result in a network, which extends beyond the classroom, and can significantly help students’ practice growth and fulfillment.
