Advanced Problem Solving is the last of the Dawson Academy seminars in the “Concept of Complete Dentistry® Series.” This dental course will provide the participant with the necessary information to solve complex dental problems. A programmed approach to treatment planning will be presented so that each student will learn how to solve the 4 functional and 12 esthetic goals when given any set of circumstances. Extreme occlusal wear, anterior open bites, deep overbites, extreme overjet and Class III malocclusions will be discussed. Neutral zone and vertical dimension will be covered in detail as it pertains to the treatment of the above problems.
Special emphasis will be placed on best restorative options, and when orthodontic/orthognathic alternatives should be considered. Each participant will learn how and when to open the vertical dimension of occlusion and when it should not be opened. A programmed approach to full mouth reconstruction, whether it is teeth, dental implants, precision attachment partials or a combination, will be a cornerstone of this program.
The 2023 installment of this course will be held in-person in Clearwater Beach, Florida.
