Occlusion day 2 logo 001 850x335

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.

As before, our goal is to create an understanding of the general concepts of occlusion within a practice to help build a foundation that brings more predictable, long-lasting dentistry, always using the three fundamentals of Reshape, Reposition or Restore. This time though, we will only focus on one topic: Managing occlusion in Restorative Dentistry.

With a FULL-DAY hands-on program that is limited to only 20 delegates, we will have more time for in-depth discussions and have the more extensive hands-on opportunity. We are also honoured to have orthodontist Dr Hardus Strydom, and renowned maxillofacial surgeon Prof Reyneke join us to speak about the role of Orthodontics and Orthognathic surgery in restorative dentistry and how we can incorporate these treatment options into our treatment planning.
