Rapid developments in dental technical materials and the completely different methods of implementation present a considerable challenge to the adaptation mechanisms of the cranio-mandibular system, making strategic case planning with an interdisciplinary approach especially important. This needs a profound knowledge of the functional, structural and dynamic functions of the masticatory organ, as well as technical knowledge of modern materials and Technologies.

The Basic Curriculum is designed in particular for dentists and dental technicians who are looking for a comprehensive and well founded further education.

Theory lessons are in a joint group of dentists and dental technicians, whereas the hands-on exercises are different and individually designed to meet the different requirements of  both professional groups. The course contents focuses on aspects, functions and dysfunctions of the craniofacial system, based on the theses of Prof. Rudolf Slavicek's Vienna School of Interdisciplinary Dentistry.



Course Contents

This modular, comprehensive and intensive course offers theoretical and practical lessons, all in a well proportioned balance  throughout the 3 modules. The concept and the system of the course permit an immediate and easy implementation of the gained knowledge in the daily work of the participants.

With the support of Prof. Rudolf Slavicek and his team all participants will perform diagnosis, documentation and case planning for selected patient cases.
