Great Course from Arthur Volker! I have seen a few of your courses over the years and this is the best A++ info packed into an hour. Very well done. Great principles of smile design, symmetry, the crucial part of the smile, how to evaluate a smile and symmetry. Great info!
Topical, pragmatic and honest.
