The Bioclear Method for Black Triangles
As strong and empowered Mommy DIBS, we all strive to be better leaders and business professionals by using new and innovative tools, but we find ourselves stuck using the same techniques like implants and computer assisted ceramics. Direct composites can offer a compelling minimally invasive alternative that will meet patients’ needs and exceed their expectations. The Bioclear Method allows you to create predictable repeatable outcomes that look natural when using composite. Esthetic treatments including diastema closure, black triangle closure, Class II, III and IV composite restorations are just the start of what can be done with the increasingly popular Bioclear Method. In this break out session, you will be introduced to the benefits of Bioclear, practice techniques on soft tissue dentiforms, and come away with the basic skills and understanding needed as a precursor to performing the Bioclear Method for patients. You’ll perform a Black Triangle restoration and learn about Class II restorations using the Bioclear Method.
This is a hands-on course!

Lie to me
We have created a life building up other people: our patients towards smiling more, our team members into growing more and our families into being loved more. Yet, when it comes to building up who we are or taking credit for how far we’ve come we have chosen to tear ourselves apart. We lie to ourselves, calling ourselves fat, weak, ugly, inferior, less-than… and the list goes on. We’ve convinced ourselves that we work too much, or too little, parent too much or not enough, are too frugal or spend money without limit.
Changing how we view ourselves may seem as simple as changing our mindset and our viewpoint; yet, if it were in fact that simple, we’d all be leading into a healthier relationship with ourselves. With scientific studies to back, and a lot of world experience, this hour will ignite within us a journey towards a less tainted self-actualization. This course will lead us:
- To understand how we’ve created a circle of lying to ourselves as a way of negotiating self- growth
- To understand how we can disassemble those lies and lean towards truth
- To understand how we can choose what to believe and how it can lead us towards a lighter, more joyful life.
