This course will help participants achieve a higher level of composite artistry with results that can seamlessly emulate natural teeth or rival the beauty of porcelain restorations by learning the concepts of both anterior composites and advanced restorative applications. Dr. Chan will cover the fundamentals from a myriad of composite systems, the physical and optical properties of resins and manufacturer differences including strength, translucency, predictable shade selection, tooth morphology, polishing techniques. The nuances that make a restoration average or exceptional such as color theory and composite selection based on the restorative goal will be presented in detail. The course will discuss the polychromatic nature of natural human teeth and how composite resins can be used to emulate that polychromatic appearance effortlessly and predictably. In the hands-on sessions, participants will have the opportunity to watch Dr. Chan walk through each skill step by step in a state of the art audio video facility while the participants work on their custom made models. This will include using putty matrices and learning advanced diastema closing techniques. Dr. Chan will demonstrate these skills with photographic examples of actual before and after composite cases. Have you ever wanted to be able to ask YOUR FAQs about composites? How do you prevent voids and how to make them disappear? Best method of shade matching? Treat and prevent post-op sensitivity? Correct poor shade matching? Now is your chance to learn composite artistry from an AACD Accredited cosmetic dentist. Participants may submit questions prior to the course and Dr. Chan will answer!
Objectives: Learn fundamental properties of "many" different types of composite systems. Learn details of shade selection, tints and opaquers and other pearls that ensure consistent results. Learn how to create polychromatic composite restorations that emulate nature and rival porcelain. Learn contouring and polishing techniques to create exceptional composite restorations. Prepare candidates for passing the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Accreditation section with composite case IV and case V.
Good Morning Dr Chan,
The class was incredible. Dr Chan was informative and very passionate about teaching the right techniques and hands on. The class is easy to follow and explained so well. It covers all the aspects of anterior composites from getting to know different composites, tints, opaquers, shade selections to the hands-on skills. It has been a great learning curve and would definitely recommend.

Dear Dr Chan,
Sandeep and I have reached safely back home to Seattle.
I wish to thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful course.
I'm already thinking about how I'm going to change not just my anterior composites but my everyday posterior composites too.
I will be ordering "brush and sculpt" and I have already ordered a glycerin gel via Amazon.
I have been involved with Spear since 2011. I did the complete UCLA Esthetic continuum in 2006. Plus I have done numerous other workshops. However THIS was a unique experience. I was immediately comfortable with the set up and with you at the helm and Liann and Linda beside you.
The training facility is VERY comfortable and cozy yet cutting edge. I felt at home.
Most of us dentists are shy and retiring in nature. I usually stumble on words in large gatherings (or small ones too ... for that matter ) but here, you put us at ease and so I was able to talk / ask questions and generally "be myself "
You are truly "an educator". You made this workshop all about US.... the attendees and not about you. If I had your skills and accomplishments, I would have had a giant head :-)
Therefore, it was also a great lesson/ workshop in humility. I wish to emulate it.
I'm leaving here, very inspired by your kindness and generosity.
Now I need to make sure I practice and practice and practice and get better and then practice some more.
Very sincerely, with my warmest regards ,

Dr. Chan is an insanely skilled dentist, with the ability to turn composite resin into stunning beauty. However his dental skills are surpassed by his genuine friendliness and passion for teaching others. I left his 3-day, 100% hands-on course with the confidence to to tackle everything from composite veneers and diastema closures, to simple 2 surface anterior restorations. I honestly could not have found a better course or instructor for these techniques!

What an amazing 3 days. This course was jam packed with practical pearls that can be implemented right away, and it is a must if you're looking to elevate your composite game. Dr. Chan's passion for composite artistry is contagious! I can't wait for his next course!

Hands-on courses do not get better than this! Dr. Chan's small class sizes and step-by-step mentoring ensure that you take your anterior composite resin skills to new heights in a matter of days! For those who want to create life-like layered conservative composites that will have patients raving, this is the course you're looking for. A great teaching center, above-and-beyond hospitality, and techniques that you can use the very next day make this course a remarkable experience.
