SAAAD Occlusion Day – March 2018 was a huge success. With the event sold out two weeks in advance and many of the delegates asking for more, you have shown what a need there is for information on this complex topic. We have listened!
SAAAD Occlusion Day 2 – The Sequel is the much-anticipated follow-up on this complex topic.

In the iconic logo, the bite was planned meticulously. Using Golden Proportion and accurate scale, the seemingly simple was crafted to create an everlasting symbol. In precisely the same manner, each dental reconstruction needs meticulous planning of the occlusion to create a bite that will last a lifetime.

HPCSA Letter

There has been confusion and concern from both the dental profession and the general public as to who is legally permitted to provide tooth whitening procedures. SAAAD is also concerned about the harm that could result to members of the public, should these procedures be carried out without an adequate dental examination and by someone without the correct training. We are aware that certain spas are providing such tooth whitening procedures. We wish to point out that this is illegal.
