When it comes to clinical dentistry, everyone knows that cutting a tooth is the “easy” part — it is handling the soft tissue that causes the most challenges for dentists. With the demand for procedures that require a confident ability to work with soft tissue, now is the time to focus on improving your execution of this core aspect.

Instead of obsessing over theory, we focused on giving participants the maximum amount of hands-on training we could fit into a two-day course. The result is a course that gives you the basics of soft-tissue management for multiple related applications, including implants, flaps and minor surgery.
