Course Description:

Crown Preparation 101: From Analog to Digital is a hands-on course that attempts to create a logical workflow from seating the patient through buildup, preparation, impression/scan, provisional and finally releasing the patient. By developing a systematic approach, we create efficiency which will turn the four visit crown preparation & final seat, into a comfortable two visits!


1) Introduce the student or “newer” dentist to a logical crown preparation workflow for both traditional impressions and digital scanning.
2) Teach evaluation of the “big picture”; what are the parameters we need to consider when planning a buildup and crown.
3) Streamline crown preparation times with guidelines and efficient rotary instrumentation including the use of electric handpieces.
4) Illustrate tissue management protocols from packing cord, retraction paste and laser.
5) Digital workflow to obtain ideal margins and clearance.
6) Provisionalization options and guidelines.

Target Audience:

This course is targeted towards 2nd, 3rd and 4th year dental students and the “newer” graduate. This course is based on years of clinical experience and observation of students. Discussion will include patient management strategies.

Experienced clinicians may find this course “too basic” for them, but very appropriate for their young associate.

Participants will perform at least one posterior and one anterior crown preparations. Other topics including dental materials and sonic instrumentation will be presented as time and the will of the group allows.
