Alan Atlas, DMD is a clinical professor in the department of preventive and restorative sciences at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. He maintains a private practice located in Philadelphia, PA.

Utilizing the dental microscope and HD video projection for instruction and demonstration, this course will deliver simplified techniques for successful direct posterior class I and II composite resins and class V restorations based on the scientific evidence provided in this course. Step-by-step protocols for preparation, material selection, placement and finishing techniques to achieve precise margins, consistent contacts and reduce post-op sensitivity will be accomplished by all participants for optimal settings and for compromised clinical conditions when traditional adhesive placed composites can’t be placed. All attendees will receive a diamond preparation kit for the course. 

In this course attendees will:
  • Review and demonstrate the restoration of class 1 and 2 direct posterior composites with different materials, and placement techniques utilized and compared
  • Describe and demonstrate the restoration of class 5 composites
  • Practice step-by-step preparation techniques with specific diamonds and rationale for perfect finish lines for composite restorations
  • Demonstrate how to get precise and consistent contacts and excellent long-term results
  • Utilize finishing and polishing techniques to preserve tooth structure and restoration integrity
