Mini Residency in Prosthodontics 2020


Tony Rotondo and Michael Mandikos are pleased to announce that we will be again staging the Mini-Residency in Prosthodontics in 2020. Our program is now in its fourteenth year and the feedback from our attendees (all of whom have now become good friends) has been excellent. We can really cram a lot of material into 9 days of combined theory, practical, and of course some light hearted humour and entertainment!

A practical program designed for the general dentist including didactic and hands-on components.

  • Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
  • Articulators, Occlusal Schemes and concepts
  • Jaw Registrations, Diagnostic wax-ups and Provisional Restorations
  • Sequencing of cases and Multidisciplinary Treatment
  • The use of splints
  • Literature reviews and Presentations from Guest Speakers
  • All we can teach you short of enrolling in a 3-year graduate program!

The program this year again consists of 3 modules, each of three days duration (Thursday, Friday, Saturday). Each module will cover in suitable depth, the relevant theory and practical stages involved in performing complex restorative cases. There will be an amount of pre-course reading and essential literature reviews, to ensure participants are well schooled in the current clinical and materials research in this area of dentistry before we discuss these in depth during the course.

Participants will gain the most from this program if they have a case suitable for rehabilitation (or other significant treatment) prior to commencing the Mini-Residency or can locate one soon after completing Module 1, though this is not a requirement for registration. Each of the modules will prepare the participants sufficiently to return to their practices and commence the relevant stages of clinical treatment for their case. Accordingly, after completing the third module of the Mini-Residency, the participants will be able to return to their practices and complete their respective complex restorative cases. Whilst participants are encouraged to have a clinical case selected to treat during this course, it is not essential for everyone attending to have a case.
