Aesthetic dentistry masterclasses announced

Five aesthetic dentistry masterclasses have been launched this week.
They are the brainchild of the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) (FGDP (UK)) and will cover:

• Tooth whitening
• Anterior aesthetic direct restorations
• Porcelain veneers
• Soft tissue management in the aesthetic zone
• Facial aesthetics.
The short courses provide general dental practitioners and registered dental care professionals with an opportunity to improve the level of aesthetic care delivered to patients.
Presented by accomplished lecturers, these hands-on masterclasses also carry optional assessment in the form of a clinical case, with those who complete the case successfully to be awarded with a Certificate of Satisfactory Completion.
The courses have been developed by programme director and immediate past FGDP(UK) dean, Professor Mike Mulcahy, together with prominent experts in the field including Linda Greenwall, David Klaff and Bob Khanna.
Offered as stand-alone units or as part of a full series, the masterclasses have been designed to bring together the fundamental elements of modern aesthetic dental practice, combining theoretical and clinical teaching.
Professor Mulcahy said: ‘There exists a strong commercial imperative for robust educational programmes in the area of aesthetic dentistry, with patient demand having fuelled a proliferation of dentists, and also non-dental professionals, offering ‘cosmetic' procedures.'
‘These masterclasses aim to improve the level of aesthetic care delivered to patients and will set the standards that all dentists should aspire to in the field. The option of assessment may also provide the public with a means of identifying dentists who have undertaken independent, acknowledged training in the field, enabling the patient to be reassured of the standard of treatment offered.'
The courses, to be held in the main at The Royal College of Surgeons of England in London,  each consist of two days of teaching and hands-on sessions, followed some eight weeks later by a further study day where students will reflect on what they have learned and how these techniques have impacted on their practice.
Students will also have the opportunity to prepare and submit a case for assessment, which if successful will carry ten credits on the FGDP(UK) Career Pathway.
Those not wishing to prepare a case will receive 21 hours of verifiable continuing professional development (CPD) for each course.
The masterclass in facial aesthetics differs in that it is offered as a five-day course and carries 35 hours of CPD, while students are also subject to compulsory assessment. The programme involves anatomical dissection of frozen cadavers with Professor Vishy Mahadevan at The Royal College of Surgeons of England and lectures from Bob Khanna and Jonathan Britto on aesthetic technique.

There will be no restrictive entry requirements and candidates may attend as many of the masterclasses as they wish. For more information, please contact the FGDP(UK) Education Department on 020 7869 6772.
