Program Purpose / Objectives

This course is designed to help those dentists who are in the process of converting their practices to include more cosmetic dentistry procedures. The lecture gives many tips on how to do cosmetic dentistry better and more efficiently. Often we defer doing cosmetic procedures because we don’t know how to fix potential problems, so many suggestions have been included on what to do when things go wrong. This high quality wide screen PowerPoint presentation begins by reviewing basic adhesive dentistry techniques while explaining a unique method of performing microdentistry, and then continually builds on the knowledge gained with each succeeding and more complex subject. Dr. Zase brings a unique teaching foundation since he is one of only eight dentists in the world who has attained both his Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry and is also Accredited in Cosmetics by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He is also an Accreditation Examiner and was President of the AACD (2006-2007).

Techniques and tips are included in the following topics:

  • The Mini-Prep: a minimally invasive technique for restoring incipient carious lesions;
  • Posterior Composites: predictable contacts, aesthetic tips, preventing overhangs, achieving zero sensitivity;
  • Invisibly Restoring Fractured Incisors: opaquing and adhesive techniques;
  • Zero sensitivity tooth whitening utilizing pre-whiteners;
  • Porcelain Onlays and Crowns: easy to use cements, repairing and preventing minor marginal defects, opaquing metal, invisible margins;
  • Smile Design: visualizing and understanding the principles;
  • Porcelain Veneers: modifying shades, laboratory communication to get what you want; repairing (closing) margins
  • Natural and Aesthetic Bridges: ovate pontic design, tissue design, repairing fractured porcelain;
  • Patient Communication: the principle of asking, cosmetic imaging.
  • And countless other pearls to put into your practice tomorrow.

Learning Objectives
  1. Learn the Mini-Prep: a minimally invasive technique for restoring incipient carious lesions.
  2. Learn opaquing, adhesive, and reparative techniques with composite and porcelain.
  3. Learn to hide or disguise porcelain and composite margins.
  4. Learn to eliminate all post-op sensitivity with bonding procedures.
  5. Learn how to do near-zero sensitivity bleaching both at home and in office.
  6. Learn to utilize ovate pontics to make natural looking bridges.
  7. Understand the principles of smile design.
  8. Feel more confident in tackling cosmetic restorations.
  9. Be more comfortable presenting cosmetic treatment plans to patients

Faculty
Martin H. Zase, DMD, MAGD, AAACD, FACD

Marty Zase was a disc jockey for eight years before becoming a dentist and is an instrument rated pilot. He is a diehard Red Sox fan, an avid reader, a not quite adequate golfer, and a graduate of the Dale Carnegie Institute, Starfleet Academy, and the Landmark Education Forum and Curriculum for Living. Dr. Zase received a B.A. from Boston University and his D.M.D. from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. A former clinical instructor in restorative dentistry at Tufts, he is guest lecturer in cosmetic dentistry at the University of Connecticut, Nova Southeastern, Indiana, and Louisiana State University Dental Schools. He has published over sixty dental articles, has served on the editorial or review boards of The Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry, Contemporary Esthetics, and General Dentistry magazines, and lectures internationally on cosmetic dentistry.

He is one of only a dozen dentists in the world to have both a Mastership from the Academy of General Dentistry and an Accreditation in Cosmetics from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He practices in the Colchester Dental Group and is the only dentist in the greater Hartford area Accredited by the AACD. He was the 2006- 2007 President of the AACD, the largest cosmetic dentistry organization in the world. He serves on the AACD Board of Accreditation Examiners and mentors Accreditation candidates. At the AACD, he was one of the developers of both the University Advisory Council and the Private Education Advisory Council to help spread the teaching of cosmetic dentistry to dental students at all stages of their careers. He is also a member of the Board of Directors of the New England Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

He has developed numerous techniques and instruments that are currently used in modern cosmetic dentistry. He was inducted into the Dental Hall of Fame by the genR8TNext Internet dental community (now the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics). He has also been granted fellowships in the American College of Dentists (FACD), the Pierre Fauchard Academy, and the International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics (FADFE), and the AGD just awarded him the Lifetime Learning and Service Recognition Award for his contributions to dentistry and dental education. He was just selected by Dentistry Today magazine as one of the Top Clinicians in Dental Continuing Education for the seventh year in a row. Dr. Zase lives in Glastonbury, Connecticut, practices in the Colchester Dental Group and is available online at Martyzase@aol.com.

Dr. Zase can usually be found around town, dressed in a Hawaiian shirt and matching socks.

Ports of Call
Athens (Piraeus), Greece - You'll climb the Acropolis, the site of ancient Athens, crowned by the immortal Parthenon. Its chiseled columns were raised by Pericles, Athens's great general. Rest your running shoes in the temple of Nike. A little shopping and souvlaki in the Plaka and you're practically an (ancient) Athenian!
Dubrovnik, Croatia - This ancient city is set on a peninsula and surrounded by a 1,000 year old protective wall. Said to be one of the prettiest spots in the world, visitng it's old-city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is like stepping back in time. Or into another world, Dubrovnik is the principal filming location for King's Landing from the blovkbuster book (and television series) "Game of Thrones."
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey - Ephesus, one of the world's finest archeological sites, awaits. Here you will walk the Arcadian Way, view the facade of the Library of Celsus and visit the Amphitheatre.
Venice, Italy - Venice is possibly the most romantic place you'll ever visit. It seems almost redundant to describe the charms of Venice. The cafes of St. Mark's Square, Palazzo-lined canals plied by gondolas, the elegant Doge's Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore: Venice is one impossibly beautiful sight after next. A great collection of Renaissance era art is housed at Gallerie dell'Accademia. Or, if you prefer modern art, Venice is home to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. And, if you want to enjoy a truly special meal while here, visit one of the excellent restaurants of the Associazione dei Ristoranti della Buona Accoglienza.

Still not sure how you'll entertain yourself? Here's the New York Times' take on how to get the most out of your time in Venice (published June 12, 2014) 36 Hours in Venice Port tips from our blog

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe.
