Biomimetic dentistry is the most advanced, logical, and scientifically supported approach to provide restorative dentistry. This interactive online course includes everything you need to start practicing biomimetic restorative dentistry immediately. The training includes the scientific foundation, fundamental techniques, and procedure protocols for direct and indirect posterior restorations. Dr. Nejad has been practicing and training dentists in Biomimetic Dentistry for over a decade, and with this online course format, you can now learn everything from the comfort of your own home with ample interaction and review for a truly exceptional experience. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn about the biomimetic approach and the many advantages over traditional dental procedures .

Traditional dental procedures rely on preparation designs that accommodate the restorative material or technique. This includes preparation features such as retention and resistance form, as well as tooth reduction to meet the strength requirements of the restorative material instead of prioritizing the preservation of intact tooth structure. As a result, the restored tooth has significant additional preparation and a significantly higher chance of complications such as pain, sensitivity, root canal treatment, recession, and fracture.

In contrast, the Biomimetic approach unites an understanding and appreciation of the biomechanics of natural teeth with principles and techniques which maximize adhesion. These concepts comprise the necessary components to mimic the natural tooth most faithfully. Restorative materials replicate the properties of the dental structures (enamel, dentin, dej) and healthy intact tooth structure is preserved through adhesion without additional preparation requirements. The biomimetically restored tooth mimics the strength, function, and esthetics of natural teeth. Biomimetic restorations include composite fillings, partial coverage restorations (ceramic or resin inlays and onlays), and when necessary, full-coverage ceramic restorations. However, the application technique and material selection makes a significant difference in the performance of these techniques, and therefore it is important to have a sound understanding of the science.

Course Registration Includes:

The course consists of high-quality video lessons and technique demonstrations that cover what, why, and how to practice biomimetic restorative dentistry.

Accessibility for interaction, discussion, and review is a critical aspect of learning biomimetic dentistry. Course participation includes a convenient Course Discussion Board available for the duration of the course. Additionally, participants can join any of the scheduled Live Office Hour options. Office hours are conveniently scheduled to provide versatility and accessibility for all attendees (international and domestic). These options provide ample accessibility to ask any questions and review any of the course material, concepts, or techniques with Dr. Nejad.

Live Office Hours Schedule:
When:  Last Saturday of the Month
Times: 9-10AM & 4-5PM Pacific Time
(times may be extended as needed)

Course registration includes a product sample/intro kit for participants located in the United States. The intro/kit is valued at over $200 and will be mailed to your registered address at the end of the course.

Participants will receive a Product Manual covering the recommended products, equipment, and supplies. Additionally, the Techniques Summary Manual reviews a summary of the covered procedures and techniques.

Course registration includes access to the course content for 30-Days. You can watch/re-watch lessons during this time, completely on your own schedule.

Testimonials

SORAYA MAHRAN | LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA headshot

This seminar changed the way I look at dentistry. It made me feel more confident to save more teeth and not to refer patients to the Endodontist or an Oral Surgeon to extract teeth. I recommend this course to every single dentist. I wish this course was taught to us in school from the very beginning.

ADAM MILLER | SAN FRANCISCO, CA headshot

This course is an amazing blend of take-home gems that you can bring directly to your practice and the data, science and literature that helps back everything up. This is the next wave of dentistry, this is how we should be practicing, and to come and get formal training like this is pretty incredible.

DIANA KOPACH | KEW GARDENS, NY headshot

So informative! It's the Dentistry of the future and any dentist whether young or old should feel very comfortable taking this course.

JON MCCLURE | FRISCO, TX headshot

I've had many many patients with hypoplastic, really broken down, six years molars that are normally getting sent for a root canal or crown. Since using biomimetic techniques these patients are just so amazed that teeth that were so sensitive are just like perfectly, great normal teeth. I couldn't be happier.

ANDY, CLAIRE, & CHARLOTTE MARRIOT-SMITH | BAIRNSDALE, AUSTRALIA headshot

We've had 2 or 3 life-changing moments in our dental career, and this course is certainly up there as one of those experiences.

MEREDITH SMEDLEY | ZEELAND, MI headshot

This is changing the way I'll do dentistry. I recommend this course to any dentist, the sooner the better. I wish I had taken this thirteen years ago.

DWAYNE MOORE | COLORADO SPRINGS, CO headshot

Using these biomimetic principles, we are able to do the best for our patients long-term. I would absolutely recommend this course to any dentist who is looking to provide great patient care.
