Smile Design

Course Type: Laboratory Technician Courses

This three-day, hands-on program is designed to enable the dental technician to develop the confidence and skills required to communicate with the dentist and thereby achieve optimal aesthetic results. Participants will fabricate an 8-10 unit anterior ceramic case on a typodont.

It is the goal of LVI to provide education that will allow the participant to deliver the highest level of dentistry – and this delivery of information starts with the technician. Today’s technological advancements require a higher level of awareness of the products and skills required to elevate technicians to better standards of practice.
