Course Description

It is our main goal as dental health professionals to help patients attain and maintain a healthy and attractive smile.  Dental esthetics, however, can not only be defined in the context of natural looking teeth and restorations. A natural and healthy gingival framework (AKA – Pink Esthetics), must also exist.  Proper management of the soft tissue  framework will also provide insight and clinical pearls for clinicians looking to improve their clinical, diagnostic and treatment planning skills.
