The Masters Course for Composite Art and Natural Esthetics

September 12-14, 2019


This advanced course is an ideal opportunity for the dentist who desires to offer their patients exceptional “Composite Art” dentistry. This is also an essential program designed for those clinicians who may be pursuing accreditation in dental organizations, which includes composite artistry. These candidates are required to demonstrate clinical excellence and knowledge of complex anterior direct restorations.  Creating six direct veneers is one of the most comprehensive and difficult cases to master. Excellence in case selection followed by preparation, tooth morphology, matrix placement, and material selection must be perfectly controlled to achieve the ultimate esthetic result. Fine detail in the clinical fundamentals, step by step, must be performed precisely; including anatomical layering to include ideal opacity and translucency, hand finishing, texture and final polishing.  This three day intensive hands-on workshop will provide attendees with proven foundational fundamentals and esthetic principals for success. All aspects of this course will be taught, demonstrated, performed, and discussed systematically, with the goal of demystifying the complexity of restoring up to six teeth with composite restorative material. When properly engineered and seamlessly blended, the clinician can create composite art that can rival the beauty of natural teeth.


  • Learn a no-nonsense approach to creating 6 seamlessly blended anterior direct veneers using techniques that can be applied to virtually all direct anterior composite restorations
  • Understand smile design concepts as a foundation for natural esthetics
  • Learn the important fundamentals of composites to achieve outstanding clinical outcomes, as well as techniques and principles for the successful pursuit of Accreditation
  • Learn how to choose and handle composite materials, anatomical matrices, and utilize injection molding principles 
  • Learn how to create proper anatomical contour with consistency and ease, simplified finishing and polishing, as well as how to develop natural restorative surface texture 
  • Learn the art of tinting to simulate natural incisal translucency


“I highly recommend taking coursework or mentorship from Frank. His passion and panache are infectious.” – David Clark, DDS – Tacoma, WA  

“Having been in practice for 20 years and attended many continuing education courses, Dr. Chan’s Anterior Composites course is by far the best course I have attended.” – Randall J. Teich, DDS – Newport, OR  

“Hands-on courses do not get better than this! Small class sizes combined with step-by-step mentoring ensure that you take your anterior composite resin skills to new heights in a matter of days, thank you Dr. Chan!” -E. Wong, Ontario, Canada  “

"Thank you so much Dr. Chan for the truly wonderful anterior composites course. It was a beautiful experience. My primary goal was to get more joy out of doing composite restorations and that goal was exceeded.” – Randy McVey, DMD – Garden City, KS

"I was so fortunate to have a mentor like Dr.Milnar throughout my AACD Accreditation journey and beyond. I first saw him at one of my AACD hands on courses and very impressed with his teaching skills, attention to detail. His commitment and passion for Dentistry is contagious. I took couple of one on one hands on courses with him at Valley dental arts in Minnesota, I learned a lot about composites and technical skills in working with composites. His kindness, willingness to share his own experiences and wisdom while listening closely, are all qualities that I’ve learned from. Beyond that, as a mentor he has always tried to help me become a better version of myself rather than trying to mold me to his perspective. His constant support has been invaluable. I can count on him each and every day if I have any questions, he is always there for me."
