The days of cashing in the home equity for 20 porcelain veneers may be over, but elective dentistry is NOT dead. Learn new treatment options, tips, and strategies to reinvigorate the elective portion of your practice, do more meaningful dentistry, and even boost your bottom line. In this lecture we will discuss how function now drives aesthetic case acceptance, and we’ll show real-world examples of cosmetic dentistry for any budget—from simple ortho you can do tomorrow, to staging complex treatment.
This course was recorded at the 2016 Townie Meeting and anyone that attended that meeting can view this course at no cost.
