Unlock the secrets to restoring patient smiles that harmonise with facial features. Join our exclusive one-day course by Dr Kaveer Ratan where you’ll delve into the world of Diagnostic Smile Design – a digital approach to restoring smiles in the context of wholistic facial diagnosis.

Key Concepts Covered:

1. Facial Feature Diagnosis: Learn the art of smile diagnostics that go beyond teeth, incorporating facial features to create smiles that enhance overall facial harmony.

2. Smile Framing: Explore the delicate balance of framing a smile within the face, understanding the nuances of lips, proportions, & facial contours that contribute to a natural & aesthetically pleasing appearance, instead of delegating your diagnostics to a technician for “wax-ups”.
