Combined in this discussion will be The Dawson Academy’s 5 requirements of occlusal stability. This section will demystify occlusion, and tremendously help ALL the dentistry you do!

Special emphasis will be placed on a checklist protocol to treatment plan for an optimum functional-esthetic result. Diagnostic tools will be reviewed in detail, looking at the advantages and disadvantages, digital photography, digital imaging, and mounted diagnostic study models. The factors involved with correct restoration selection for anterior reconstruction will also be investigated. The contact lens (stacked porcelain) veneer, pressed ceramic veneers, pressed and milled lithium disilicate ceramic crowns, and CAD-CAM zirconia milled systems, will be investigated in great detail. Procedural skills on preparation, creating beautiful provisionals, and a step-by-step technique for predictable delivery will also be will be learned.

  • How to take the appropriate bite registrations, to mount the provisional and master casts.
  • The best method of articulation in cosmetic-aesthetic dentistry.

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.
