Direct Composite


DIRECT COMPOSITE – Natural Layering (Intensive Course)


Date: 1ª Edition: Postponed, new date soon available
Target: Dentists
Course Type: Theory and practice; intensive
Place: MD Academy – Taguspark (Oeiras)
Duration: 24h (3 days)
Available seats: 20
Price: 1.600€


It is an hands-on approach course that enables the accomplishment of direct restorations in composite resin in a simple and didactic way through the individualized training. The development of visual dexterity and manual skills happens in practice through step-by-step repetition in custom models. Different techniques for composite manipulation are developed during classes, as well as different restorative protocols that can be fully reproduced in clinical practice. Focusing on understanding the natural dental structure, the course allows transferring the acquired knowledge to the appropriate use of resin layers and faithful reproduction of dentin and enamel structures in any situation.
