Dr. Jose Ruiz
Every practice has 5% to 15% of patients who are missing multiple teeth and need full mouth rehabilitation but cannot afford it, and we see them suffer and deteriorate feeling helpless. An even larger number of our patients would greatly benefit by opening their Vertical Dimension of Occlusion (VDO) to restore their worn-out dentition. They need help!
In this practical lecture Dr. Ruiz will offer a more real world approach to treating these patients using direct composite, adhesive dentistry and limited implants.
Learn a practical technique to treat larges cases in multiple stages, making it affordable to almost every patient.
Learning techniques for proper adhesion and full composite rehabilitations.
Understand how to record patients’ unique esthetic perspective and goals and how to blend it with our own.

When and why to use a CR bite.
How to educate patients about occlusal disease, for excellent treatment acceptance.
Step by step techniques, and much, much more…
