According to the University of Instagram, all patients want mouthfuls of veneers and tiny little supragingival class two composites.

In reality, patients actually have bleeding gums, subgingival caries, plaque, budgets, lack of interest in saving their teeth, and a desire to tell you they hate you before they even sit down. And then they call back and their tooth now hurts since you restored it.

Even procedures considered simple can be very stressful in many patients.

In this lecture, Lincoln and Michael will cover strategies that simultaneously improve the quality of work and significantly reduce stress in every day practice. Particularly in every day cases that are difficult.

Dr Fauzia Khan - USA

"So the experience of doing the hands-on course from my office has been one of the biggest benefits. Not only am I more relaxed because I'm in a known setting ... So it's been wonderful, not to mention the fact that I don't have to travel and stay in hotels and have all that other stuff with my busy life."

Dr Stefanie Hirt - Switzerland

"The feedback process with the educators are very effective. There’s always someone there for me. If I had questions I could ask them and they’re answered immediately. I like that I could work with my own instruments, with my own machinery, with my own unit, with my own assistant. That gave me a lot of confidence in what I was doing."
