(DA3) Advanced series for DAs (FP): Mastering Set up and assisting for Fixed Prosthodontic procedures such as Crown, Bridge, Veneers and Implants

Dental Practitioners/Practice Owners:  Never feel stressed again about the knowledge and skill levels of your DA.  Relax and enjoy your dentistry, focus on the procedure and not on your assistant.

Stop stressing and thinking for your DA, or checking if they have set up everything you need for the the procedure on hand, or whether they will be able to assist you well.

We want you to focus on your dentistry.  Leave all the training to us at Just Excel. Reward your staff with the best gift of continuing education and reap the benefits.

If you are a busy practitioner and do not have the time or resources to train them yourself, then this course will interest you.

Let us equip your DA, in 1 day, with the knowledge and skills required to assist you efficiently in preparing for crowns, bridges, or implants

Remember, this is not covered thoroughly in their basic Dental Assisting Certificate III programme, additional training is needed for these advanced procedures to get them up to speed.

Your DA will leave with worksheets, and checklists that they can implement immediately in your practice.

The best part is that we can tailor make this to your practice specifically if you tell us what you use in your practice.
