How do you create long-lasting indirect restorations?

There is no larger frustration than complications or failures in our treatment. Successfully treating our patients with fixed prosthodontics mandates that we have a comprehensive understanding of not only occlusion and materials, but also a mastery of mechanical concepts and a healthy respect for the remaining tooth structure.

Real improvement in outcomes can be directly attributed to attention to detail and execution. Just as important as technical improvements are in restorative care, we must develop an awareness of all the interactions of the choices we make; use of the appropriate restorative instruments, creating a blue print with a diagnostic wax up and carrying that design though patient approval and provisional resttorations, shade selection and communication, preparation and margin design, the use of a core build up or a post, as well as our luting agent selection.

At the end of the day, we cannot afford failures in our treatment. Costs lost to time, remakes and loss of patient confidence are not something we strive for. This event will help you identify potential causes of failures so you can prevent them occurring.

 Conference Objectives

What do young dentists think of YDC?

We're pretty chuffed by the feedback we've received. Here's what past attendees think about our young dentist conference.


“YDC was really interesting - it's stuff that you don't get taught in dental school.”

Anthony Nguyen
Young dentist

“Dr. Harris's content I can apply straight away. Practical, to the point, and something I can apply in-clinic, as well as treatment planning.”

Ai Lin Tan
Young dentist

“YDC was affordable and really well organised; I'd definitely recommend it to young dentists.”

Jordan Kolsky
Young dentist

The Rose Room

The Young Dental Conference will be held at the Rose Room, a hidden gem in Venice Beach. Forget sterile white walls and convention halls; this unique private Westside studio has over 2000 sq/ft of concrete floors, high-vaulted wood rafter ceilings, ample natural light through 8 large skylight windows, and a large bay window window that gives you a glimpse of the beach.

There are numerous transport options, include multiple parking lots nearby, and the venue is only steps away from the Venice Beach Boardwalk and Santa Monica. Morning tea, lunch, and afternoon are catered for, on the day. Join us at 6 Rose Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90291.
