The preparation visit begins the transformation.  It also lays the groundwork for the success or failure of the seat visit. In this course, Dr. Rosenthal demonstrates minimal preparation techniques and provisionalization techniques to fabricate functional and esthetic provisionals.  This course will cover the importance of the wax up and it’s necessity when doing minimal prep dentistry.  It will cover important information that should be communicated to ceramists in order for them to provide beautiful consistent results.  Dr. Rosenthal will design the provisionals on each side differently giving the patient a choice when it comes to the final result.
