An introduction to the Bioclear Method for Monolithic, Superior & Aesthetic Composites
Please note that this is a limited attendance hands-on session. There is ONE session in the morning, and ONE session in the afternoon, which is a REPEAT of the morning session. Please only book morning OR afternoon, not both!
This Bioclear Method Introduction presentation will provide a wealth of practical advice to all dentists who wish to experience a unique approach to modern resin dentistry.
It introduces the use of ‘injection moulding’ composite placement techniques with the use of the anatomic Bioclear matrix system. The Bioclear Method has also rebuilt the model for how dentists prepare and restore teeth with composite, discarding nearly all the principles based on the old GV Black model.
