All courses are taught in Dallas, TX, at City Place Conference Center, beginning on a Friday morning at eight a.m., and concluding on Saturday afternoon at five p.m.

The small group Masters setting allows for interactive, inclusive and intense personalized study. These courses are for dentists serious about moving to the highest level and practicing in the top tier of comprehensive aesthetic restorative dentistry. Engaging discourse, utilizing the Socratic Method, will be an important part of the Masters Courses.

Dentists will master the best methods of performing each step of an aesthetic restorative case.

All day Saturday of each Masters course, invited specialty speakers present seminars on a variety of topics pertinent to CARD dentists. Speakers and topics include Dr. Henry Gremillion and Frank Dolwick on the topic of diagnosis and treatment of facial pain; Dr. Farhad Boltchi on the topic of implant complications and gingival/bone grafting; IMTEC dentists on the topic of mini implant placement; Dr. Jack Griffin on the topic of dental photography; Dr. Alec Fleury (Real World Endo) on the topic of rotary endodontics, retrofill surgery, and post removal; Mr. Phil Watkins (CDT and owner of Functional Esthetics dental lab) on the topic of effective laboratory communication; Mr. Willi Geller and Mr. Asami Tanaka (both CDT’s) on the topics of advanced dental laboratory porcelain techniques (for technicians and dentists); various communications specialists, on the topics of intra-office and dentist/staff/patient communication; Dr. Ron Auvenshine on the topic of diagnosis and treatment of facial pain.
