Arthur R. Volker, DDS
Would you like to be more comfortable and confident with your comprehensive restorative techniques and maximize esthetic and functional results?
The amount of new information regarding dental materials, technology and research that is available today can be overwhelming and challenging to absorb, yet clinicians tend to have less time than ever to learn and integrate new techniques. Arthur R. Volker, DDS offers a scientific, clinical approach in his presentations that guide clinicians from A to Z, sorting the help from the hype and resulting in more confidence, less stress, predictable esthetic results and practice growth.
Are you frustrated from the lack of consistent results?
The world of dental ceramics can be difficult to navigate. Drawing from his on-going research in the physical properties of dental ceramics, Dr. Volker takes the attendee from treatment planning and sequencing to cementation and maintenance in this comprehensive course.
This course aims to explain the proper selection criteria and usage of ceramic materials and ancillary components. Attendees will participate in a hands-on preparation, impression, fabrication and cementation of an indirect ceramic restoration. Additionally, effective communication with the dental laboratory will be discussed.
Clinicians will receive the tools and protocols needed to ensure predictable esthetic and functional results.
- Learn treatment sequencing and planning – procedures and protocols
- Evaluate material selection – rationale and scientific evidence
- Understand retraction and hemostasis – techniques and materials
- Gain knowledge of preparation and impression – techniques and guidelines
- Discover the importance of communication with the laboratory – what information is needed for predictability
- Ascertain treatment of Intaglio – techniques and materials
- Understand bonding and/or cementation – techniques and materials
Suggested Format: Lecture and/or Workshop
Suggested Audience: Dentists
Are you ready to increase your understanding of minimally invasive dentistry and achieve predictable esthetic and functional results?
It’s very easy to talk about taking away less tooth structure, but it is more difficult to apply this concept. Combining old school concepts with new school technology, Dr. Volker (a Diplomate in the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry) presents a unifying approach, which includes proportional analyses, orthodontic techniques, and direct/indirect restorations. Additionally, the importance of uncommon – yet proven – restorative techniques such as transitional composite restorations and marginal refinement techniques will be covered.
This course aims to give clinicians the tools needed to successfully and immediately expand the use of minimally-invasive dentistry in daily practice.
Suggested Format: Full or Half-Day Lecture
Suggested Audience: Dentists
A beautiful smile. Where to begin?
Understanding the determinants of dental esthetics is the starting point to achieving an exceptional cosmetic result. In this Esthetics 101 course, Dr. Volker shares the principles of smile design, proportion analysis and color elements. The fundamental mathematical concepts associated with beauty are presented in a manner that is easy to comprehend and use. Effective communication skills for explaining the desired result with the laboratory are discussed. By reviewing clinical case studies, attendees will learn what to look for as they develop and exercise their ‘dental eye’.
This course will provide attendees with the foundation necessary to objectively evaluate dental esthetics and immediately apply these principles to daily practice.
- Apply principles of smile design and analysis of proportions
- Integrate mathematical algorithms of dental esthetics to smile design
- Understand the impact of shape and texture on tooth form
- Utilize hue, value and chroma to determine color for anterior restorations
- Understand the components of the polychromatic incisal edge
- Effectively communicate desired outcomes to the patient and laboratory
- Correct the “non-esthetic” smile
Suggested Format: Half-Day Lecture Format
Suggested Attendees: Dentists
Course Handouts Include: Form examples, templates, and other tools/resources to help participants implement new skills and systems when they return to the office.
