Learning Content
This is a three hour presentation by Dr Ashish B Parmar (Ash) of The Academy By Ash (www.theacademybyash.co.uk).

The following is a list of the content or material that Ash will cover:
  • The Vision of the ideal, modern private dental practice
  • Communication skills and techniques to show the patient what is possible for them in cosmetic dentistry (includes use of the 3Shape (Trios) digital scanner, photography, iPAD video use, mock ups with composite, wax ups & creation of a trial smile and cosmetic imaging)
  • Use of a Smile Questionnaire to boost cosmetic dentistry in your practice
  • The importance of a comprehensive dental assessment and treatment planning to reach accurate diagnoses, and then recommend the ideal treatment plan for the patient based on their needs or wants, and budget
  • General clinical tips to improve your standard of dentistry
  • Smile Analysis – what to look for when assessing a person’s smile
  • Cosmetic contouring – minor reshaping of teeth edges to create the best smile
  • Teeth whitening – a comparison of the ZOOM and Enlighten systems
  • Orthodontics in general practice – case studies showing Invisalign and 6 Month Smiles
  • Fibre/Composite dentistry – innovative treatment solutions using composite and fibres. Examples will be shown of how to replace a single missing tooth, extract a loose tooth and resplint it back in place, periodontal splinting, and creating a custom fibre post
  • Composite veneers – step-by-step training on how to do them
  • Single discoloured/broken anterior tooth – a philosophical debate on doing a composite veneer vs a porcelain veneer
  • Porcelain veneer preparations using the “Galip Gurel” technique – this is the best technique to ensure minimal tooth preparation
  • Smile Makeovers – offering life changing dentistry using porcelain restorations
  • An insight in to implant dentistry, and full mouth wear cases
Aims & Objectives
The main objective of this Course is to give a dentist that wants to do more cosmetic dentistry a very good insight in to how to go about doing that. There are many courses available and sometimes it becomes confusing where to start, or which course to do.
The main aims Ash had in creating this presentation were:
  • Explain to dentists in a simple and clear way the most fundamental skills and strategies required to become a successful cosmetic dentist
  • Show a diverse range of clinical cases with a concept of doing things in the safest and best way for the patient using a minimally invasive approach. The goal is to create beautiful smiles suited to the individual, improving dental health and achieving long lasting results
  • Simple treatments: Cosmetic contouring, teeth whitening and bonding
  • Understanding the value of offering orthodontic treatment in general practice, e.g. Invisalign
  • Opening up a whole new world of dentistry using fibres and composite – many dentists don’t use fibres in general practice
  • A critical comparison of composite and porcelain – advantages and disadvantages of both materials
  • Teach dentists how to do composite veneers in one visit
  • Share tips on porcelain veneer preparation – i.e. which burs to use, the sequence of tooth preparation and which records are needed
  • Show many life changing Smile Makeovers done at Smile Design By Ash
Development Outcomes
This CPD Course meets the following of the GDC’s development outcomes: A and C

The essential knowledge of occlusion

Avoiding Occlusally Related Failure in Restorative Dentistry

Drawing on over 40 years of clinical experience the presentation will marry some basic occlusal theory and its application in the provision of restorations. The presentation is very clinically photographically driven and does not deal with theory such as the anatomy of the TMJ’s, articulator’s and facebows. The content of the lecture is to show clinical failures and explain why they have occurred in the provision of everyday dentistry.

  • To give an understanding of the signs and symptoms of potential occlusally related problems during a clinical examination
  • To outline the limitations of dental articulators
  • With the use of clinical photographs, to broaden the understanding of the five basic theoretical and clinical principles of occlusion
  • When to treat conformatively and when to re-organise the occlusion prior to treatment
  • To show some of the clinical ramifications following a loss of occlusal harmony
  • To outline how to prevent introducing changes to the occlusal scheme when providing definitive restorations
  • To reinforce some of the basic occlusal principles involved during the provision of treatment – endodontics ,orthodontics as well as the provision of soft night plates
  • The use of e.max overlays to avoid the provision of posts in root treated teeth  as well as the provision of soft night plates
  • To clarify any misconceptions
  • Material choices to avoid restorative failures
  • Some aspects of bridge design to avoid occlusally related failure
Learning outcomes:
  • To clarify any miconceptions
  • To have a broader understanding of the fundamentals of occlusion, their importance in occlusal diagnosis and clinical management of a patient.
  • To have the knowledge to adopt a structured approach to the delivery of restorative treatment
  • To avoid occlusally related failures in the provision of restorative treatment
