Aesthetic Advantage: Where We Continue to Strive | New York, NY

On November 21, 2003 Dean Michael Alfano officially dedicated a wing of New York University Dental College as the Dr. Larry Rosenthal Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry. Named in honor of its principle benefactor, the Rosenthal Institute is wholly dedicated to fostering continuing education, research and patient care in current and emerging techniques in aesthetic dentistry. The institute also houses NYUCD’S continuing education program, which annually attracts more than 4,000 dentists from more than 20 countries, making it perhaps the most far reaching program of its kind in the world.

It is the nation’s first comprehensive program in an academic dental center to train dentists in the burgeoning field of aesthetic dentistry. The 6,000,000.00 8,500 Square foot learning facility features an elegant marble and mahogany décor. It is equipped with 15 state of the art treatment rooms all equipped with state of the art ambidextrous capable Kavo Dental chairs, a 52-seat amphitheater with lap top connection, surround sound system and global videoconferencing reach. It also has a corporate style boardroom with remote broadcast capabilities a large laboratory with a demonstration area and overhead state-of-the-art TV display and an operatory under glass outfitted with multiple cameras to permit live interactive clinical demonstration that can be broadcast around the world. The Rosenthal Institute will provide a coordinated approach to the study of aesthetic dentistry. Students will develop skills in current and emerging techniques with hands on courses in aesthetic dentistry.

Aesthetic Advantage Hands-On Courses: Level One

ThinkstockPhotos-464323669Aesthetic Advantage offers a variety of dental continuing courses, including hands-on dental courses. The professionals of Aesthetic Advantage list the following advantage of hands-on dental courses:

  • Individuals who learn in a hands-on learning environment are more likely to remember the material better.
  • Studies show that hands on courses motivate individual to actively engage in their learning and improve their skills.
  • Hands on dental courses allow individuals to discuss any misconceptions they have on the material, providing people with the right guidance in order to be successful in all fields of dentistry.

The Rosenthal Aesthetic hands on course is a class designed to give you day to day scenarios in which you will be dealing with aesthetic procedures as a dentist. This course is designed to give you hands on interaction with whomever you’d like to bring along as your patient. If you don’t want to bring a patient, you don’t have to and you only have to pay half of the tuition. There are two other levels that follow this course and it is encouraged that you take all three of them.

On our first day you will sit in on lectures on prep techniques, smile design principles, cementation techniques, patient management treatment planning, lab communication for a more predictable result, material selection and more. You may bring a patient and prep a live case or you will be able to audit (observe over the shoulder) up to 10-15 cases being prepped and inserted at this course, as well on clinic day. You will be able to return one month later to sit in on lectures regarding cementation, occlusion, advanced cases and marketing, then go to clinic the following day to observe 10-15 cases being inserted.

Aesthetic Advantage emphasizes the importance of hands on dental courses because of the many advantages they offer compared to a traditional classroom setting. If you are looking for a way to further your knowledge and expertise regarding dental education call Aesthetic Advantage today.
