Dr. Charette’s vision for this course was born out of his desire to enable general dentist to provide higher levels of care for the benefit of their patients and their practices. This course was designed with the understanding that in order for any provider to be successful with prosthodontic level cases, they need to be able to do more than follow the steps. Thus, the course focuses on the diagnosis and treatment planning as well as the execution. Being a prosthodontist means understanding what needs to be done, why it should be done, when it should be done, and how it is done. Dr. Charette has committed himself to teaching others the what, why, when, and how of high level dentistry in a clear and concise course designed with his student’s experience in mind.
