Clinical Program 3:

Prosthodontic Potpourri

Room: Munro 7-8

A potpourri usually refers to a mixture, collection or medley of various spices, petals or melodies.

Prosthodontics in private practice involve various clinical procedures, customized protocols, innovative technology and novel dental materials. Psychological and biological factors also play an important role in the overall approach.


This multi-speaker presentation will address several prosthodontic “petals” and restorative “melodies” to help the attendees understand multiple prosthodontic situations, troubleshooting, case selection and predictable outcomes.


During the fast-paced lecture series the speakers will answer specific clinical questions based on the cumulative decision making of a prosthodontic group practice. Clinicians will be provided with pragmatic and useful recommendations that can be incorporated into everyday practice.
