Composite Simplicity

The Composite Course

Composite Simplicity

Quite simply, the most in-depth upscaling composite course for General Practice. This course has been running for over 12 years and has evolved to cater for obtaining basic as well as advanced skills in resin artistry.

Starting from the basics and rapidly progressing to advanced techniques and considerations this course will elevate your knowledge of direct composite used in the anterior and posterior dentition to a point where you will be able to tackle cases with a more systematic and logical mindset. This course consists of 1 detailed anterior restoration and 2 detailed posterior restorations conducted in a hands on environment.

This course is designed for all clinicians and is a testament to hundreds that have taken the program over the last 10 years be they general practitioners, registered specialists, therapists and hospital consultants.
