Short Course on Cosmetic Restorative Dentistry (CRD) - 2018







Cosmetic dentistry has been around for years, but today more than ever people are realizing the tremendous power of a beautiful smile. Smile is one of the most important aspects of person’s appearance.

Cosmetic dentistry aims at improving the appearance of a person's teeth, gums and/or occlusion. It serves as a beautifying Art of science and positively shapes up the psychological and social state of patients by giving them confidence and good appearance. This also motivates patients to take better care of their oral health.

Today’s growing demand for Cosmetic Restorative Dentistry far exceeds the current supply of qualified Cosmetic Dentists.

The course presents modern concepts for treating restorative, esthetic, and functional deficiencies and dental digital photography and imaging. Focus is made on teaching evidence-based principles and systems.

 “CRD-Fundamentals” is the first of several modules in series on the Cosmetic Restorative Dentistry course (CRD) accredited with MUHAS. This module prepares the dental practitioner to act as a primary care provider for patients who have extended restorative oral health care needs.
