Got a Question About The The Complete GDP Ask Here
The Complete GDP series of courses teaches dentists how to examine, diagnose, treatment-plan, and treat every patient.
Covering simple to complex cases, the course is taught over three comprehensive two-day modules, with the majority of time focussed on hands-on training and implementation.
The Two-Day Modules
1) Examination, Records & Splints - getting to “YES”
2) Predictable Treatment Planning
3) Aesthetic and Restorative Principles
These courses provide the framework to ensure each patient is treated appropriately and ethically to achieve biologically stable, functional and aesthetically-pleasing results.
The Complete GDP Course is designed to maximise learning and implementation.
The majority of classroom time is devoted to hands-on exercises.
Each course starts with a pre-course webinar to give you a theoretical overview, followed by an in-depth Q&A session. This ensures that basic theory is covered before the course so that your time in the classroom can focus on practical work.
During the two day course, you will primarily carry out hands-on exercises from the curriculum and gain continual feedback, along with further supporting theory.
Immediate implementation is key to successful learning and the development of new skills. So, after each course, you will put what you have learnt into practice before presenting to the group at the next session.
As part of the course, you will get access to online mentoring for a patient case of your choosing. You will be coached through the case from start to finish to build your confidence in achieving excellent clinical outcomes.
A comprehensive examination is the basis of every treatment plan. It is also the key to avoiding failure and managing patient expectations.
Post-course online mentoring is available to support you when integrating new skills into your daily practice.
This interactive webinar allows delegates to access the information needed to carry out a comprehensive examination, understand the patient journey, keep the records required for predictable treatment planning, and understand splint therapy basics.
This course explores a step-by-step process for predictable treatment planning.
This program will work through different treatment planning situations, including localised anterior tooth wear, generalised tooth wear, and ortho-restorative cases.
We will examine different treatment options, including reshaping restorations and provisional restorations (equilibration), repositioning (orthodontics), restorative and surgical.
There will also be an opportunity for delegates to present and discuss their cases.
The interactive webinar allows delegates to access the information needed to understand a step-by-step treatment planning process.
Starting with 2D smile design to enhance patient engagement and education, we will then discuss 3D design (diagnostic wax-up) to understand how the teeth need to fit in the patient’s face to achieve optimum health, function and aesthetics.
In this final module, we will explore a structured approach to contouring and polishing restorations.
We will investigate the different approaches to restoration techniques and preparation approaches, including direct vs indirect restorations, minimal and no-prep restorations and adhesive vs traditional preparation approaches and much more.
The interactive webinar will discuss macro and micro-aesthetic principles and basic restorative theory to support the hands-on program.
This is a modular course that spans over multiple dates which can be booked individually or as a whole.
