Course Description

The aim of the course is to outline the systematic approach to prosthetic rehabilitation, which is necessary for the clinician to face the simple and complex prosthetic rehabilitation cases, both on natural teeth and on implants, and which include bridges, crowns and veneers. The correct management of the concepts of aesthetics and gnathology allows the realization of predictable and lasting prosthetic treatments. Moreover, with the description of all the step-by-step operative phases of the various prosthetic procedures, clarity is made on many clinical aspects of daily prosthetic practice. Each doctor participating in the course can elect a topic of preference to be treated specifically

Speaker: Dr. Massimo Pirelli

Refund and cancellation policy

All cancellations must be received in writing. If cancellation is made 90 days or more before the seminar date, a full refund will be made. If cancellation is made 60-89 days before the seminar date, you will be able to receive a 50% refund. No refunds can be made for cancellations made 59 days or less from the seminar No refunds will be made for a cancellation made during the seminar. I recommend booking travel insurance for your trip, because at this time Go Italianissimo is not able to make exceptions for weather or personal emergencies. Go Italianissimo reserves the right to cancel a small group trip or seminar. This is very unlikely, but in this situation, you would receive a complete refund of your trip fees and seminar including your deposit. Go Italianissimo will not assume any other liability and is not responsible for any personal expenses as a result of a tour cancellation or seminar, such as airline tickets or personal hotel reservations.
