Program Purpose / Objectives
The pursuit of excellence in any field is a process of learning and overcoming challenges. The comprehensive co-discovery examination process using today’s digital tools leads to acceptance of optimum dentistry, which is most rewarding to the dentist and patient. This program will provide ideas and techniques for implementing the broad vistas of new technologies into everyday dental practice to diagnosis and deliver exceptional comprehensive care. We will assist dentists and their teams in establishing a philosophy of excellence at every level to create a successful practice that continues to prosper, more so in today’s tough times.
Participants will learn:
  • The importance of the complete examination process
  • How to plan treatment and present comprehensive restorative dentistry to your patients as well as motivate them to accept the proposed treatment
  • How to use the new digital technology to increase patient education and acceptance of optimal dentistry
  • Learn to use imaginative treatment planning to escape single-tooth emergency-driven dentistry
  • How to effectively use study models to plan, present and provide excellent restorative dentistry
  • The art of comprehensive restorative dentistry from examination and diagnosis to tooth preparation, tissue management, temporization, and final restoration
  • How to make the results of your restorative cases more predictable
  • How to ensure that your restorations will be in harmony with the TMJ’s and comfortable to the patient
  • The use of CAD/CAM dentistry and the newest esthetic materials and procedures for posterior and anterior restorations
  • How to restore an entire posterior quadrant with long lasting tooth-colored restorations that mimic natural healthy teeth by using CAD/CAM technology to its fullest level by blending indirect laboratory restorations
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Unique to the area, his practice houses a crown and bridge laboratory with three technicians focusing on CAD/CAM milling technology to produce metalfree inlays, crowns and bridges. Dr. Jesek continued his training at The Pankey Institute beginning in 1986 and is a current member of the L.D. Pankey Dental Foundation. He is also an active member of the Dawson Academy Alumni Association.

Ports of Call
Funchal (Madeira), Portugal - The island of Madeira is located in the Atlantic Ocean about 370 miles off the coast of Morocco. For over 100 years tourists have enjoyed its rugged volcanic peaks, beautiful tropical coastline and a climate that's never too hot or cold. Madeira lace and Madeira wine are both still produced here in the Old World tradition. Many hidden valleys, peaks and botanical gardens are just waiting to be explored.
Lanzarote, Canary Islands - With its landscapes filled with beaches and more than 300 volcanoes, plus perfect weather all year round, you'll quickly see why Lanzarote is an award-winning tourist destination. The island's dedication to the environment and tourism has even resulted in recognition from the World Tourism Organization as a universal model of sustainable development. In addition, the island has gone to considerable lengths to preserve its own history, culture and heritage.
Las Palmas, Gran Canaria - Gran Canaria is one of the seven Canary Islands, located off the northwest corner of Africa. As the most populated island of the archipelago, you'll find the local culture is a unique blend of Spanish, African, Latin American and Northern European communities. But the diversity doesn't end there. Gran Canaria also has three distinct climates and landscapes, including snow-capped mountains, gorgeous beaches and tropical forests with lush vegetation.
Málaga, Spain - Málaga is the gateway to the Andalusian countryside and the Costa del Sol, where you can dig your toes in to the sand of some of the most impressive beaches. But this bustling town has more to offer than surf and sun. Málaga also boasts a number of impressive palaces, including the Moorish Alcabaza and Gibralfaro, as well as the majestic Alhambra Palace.
Tenerife, Canary Islands - The largest of the Canary Archipelago, the island of Tenerife consists of many different regions - each with its own characteristics. There are mountains, lush valleys, a gigantic crater (which is now a national park) and, of course, fabulous beaches. If the beautiful landscapes don't bring a smile to your face, the weather certainly will.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
