Christian Coachman
Sunday, June 9
8:15 am - 9:00 am
Grand Ballroom (Salon F)

Restorative dentistry is not only about technical skills or using state-of-the-art materials. It is the way you visualize the disharmonies, communicate all the issues with the team, and present the plan to the patient that makes the difference. By learning how to master some simple tools and the process of digital smile design, you will improve your esthetic diagnosis, communication skills, case documentation, educational capabilities, and case acceptance and become a complete modern clinician incorporating those skills into your daily work.
