Ivoclar Course Brochure 2012

The removable revolution is well under way, with hundreds of Dental Technicians evolving into the next generation of denture experts. Clinical Dental Technicians now work in everyday partnerships with Implant Dentists, pursuing the ideal goal of providing edentulous patients with implant assisted dentures that are comparable in function to natural teeth. Changing Faces Clinical Dental Technician, Marc Northover, is now offering a new course programme based around the Biofunctional Prosthetic System, delivering everything Clinical Dental Technicians need to respond to the challenges of working in the business of denture prosthetics today. With the support of his CDT colleague Andrew Taylor, the focus will be on SR Phonares II, the next generation of denture teeth, and SR Ivobase, the new fully automated electronic injection moulding device that produces precision denture bases. Together these products set a new quality standard in denture manufacture for more lifelike, precise and long lasting results.

The courses will be based at Ivoclar Vivadent’s training centres here in the UK and Liechtenstein offering everything you would expect from a world-class facility and more, being equipped with the latest technology and furnished to uphold the highest standards. With an established reputation for excellence across the dental industry, Ivoclar Vivadent’s core philosophy is one of providing the highest standards in quality and care with Passion, Vision and Innovation. This ethos coupled with its many years of experience underpins everything that the company does.

Marc will make sure that all participants make the best of their learning and development. Wherever you are in your career he will assist with the technical and clinical support you need to excel in your role, plus the ongoing support you need to implement your new skills and knowledge through one-to-one tuition and mentoring.

If you are ready to take your career to the next level then Marc looks forward to seeing you soon!

What the participants are saying:

I was looking for a course to develop my skills and offer my patients the latest and best dentures available. Since completing this course I have certainly improved as a CDT and have implemented what I learned and the results are superb. I found Marc to be a pleasure to work with. His skill, knowledge and his demeanour are top class. CPD has never been so fun. It was that good I would do it again.

Paul Harrison, Clinical Dental Technician Harrison Denture Clinic

I attended a 3 day one-to-one personalised learning programme with Marc that he designed specifically for my needs. The level of training made me feel very confident in my new work with patients. The course content left me feeling revitalised as a Dental Technician and excited about moving forward with my education as a CDT. I am looking forward to working to the best of my ability using the BPS products and giving my patients thirty years of experience.

Brendan Hudson, Dental Technician
 Founder of PDS Dental Laboratory and student Clinical Dental Technician

Over the past four years, I have attended several courses presented by Marc and Andrew from the BPS technical, to ‘one to one’ advanced clinical courses. The blend of professionalism & approachability they demonstrate cannot be over stated. I would recommend & encourage any Technician or CDT intent on improving their skills or learning new techniques to consider attending one of the many courses they offer.

His son Christian obviously shares John’s passion and his work with patients was of a very high standard just like his father’s. The profession of Clinical Dental Technology will be a better place with them in it. I wish them all the best”.
