Core II – Orthotic Maintenance, Adjustment and Principles of Reconstruction

Course Type: Core Curriculum

Core II is designed to be a life-changing, aesthetic treatment program with hands-on, personal experience in the management of a Physiologic Orthotic. This intense, hands-on program concentrates on developing a critical eye for aesthetic excellence as well as completing the diagnostic foundation to help patients enjoy a life free of pain and physiologic compromises.

Built on the #1 most popular principles of LVI, this course is designed to give attendees the tools for LVI Smile Design and Doctor/Lab/Patient communication that create success in today’s demanding dental practice. This course includes comprehensive training, practical occlusion concepts, creating a positive philosophical attitude and effective case acceptance principles and appropriate risk management procedures. In this program you have the opportunity to ‘pre-prep’ a case from your office. Together with the attendees you will discuss cases being treated at home as well as cover the wide variety of different preparation designs and considerations.

Using a case you will prepare at home, you can have the prep design discussed and then prepare the model and build beautiful temporaries with a technique where you can create a single unit to a full smile in 10 minutes! This experience will allow you to make the decisions for the case in a controlled environment and then when you are in your office preparing the actual case you can do it with confidence and precision.

“LVI has changed the way I approach my patients and their care. It feels so much more comprehensive and I really feel like a healthcare practitioner- not just a tooth doctor – after learning from LVI.”
