With Dr Céline Higton 
This course will present the concept that the placement of high quality and durable posterior composite resin restorations relies heavily upon a well-executed sequence consisting of excellent isolation, cavity preparation, matrixing and finally the composite placement itself. Learn how to follow cutting edge biomimetic principles and consistently place robust and reliable posterior composites that will stand the test of time and outlast the industry standards.
