”Removable Prosthetics: Basics and Beyond” GC America CONTINUING EDUCATION LABORATORY COURSE You’re invited to attend the exciting course: by instructor Mr. Thomas Zaleske, AS Course Description This course was developed to address the interest many Technicians have expressed regarding not only high-end fabrication techniques, but also the basic procedures and nuances that establish a consistent quality in a lab’s standard work. Don’t be fooled, there are many basic techniques that on the surface sound basic but once explained and demonstrated can elevate every day dentures to a higher level. This 2-day course is designed to address the basics and beyond of denture construction as learned, modified and implemented by instructor, Mr. Thomas Zaleske, AS. It consists of PowerPoint presentation, over the shoulder demonstration and hands-on instruction. ‘The Basics’ topics include: the model bench, record/communication/optional tools, tooth arrangement to accommodate ridge form, waxing nature to portray realism and packing, processing and finishing conventional and optional microwave acrylics.
