FAQ image

"Will this course work for me?"

Our framework has been designed from the ground up for everybody - from beginner fresh out of university to the advanced practitioner.

We have combined Dr Dennis Brown's 40+ years experience, Dr Sunny's 13+ years experience and their battle tested techniques made for the real world ready for you to take into practice without endless trial and error.

The DRE Composite Course is an accelerated 6 week learning program, so you can tackle any restorative problem with the utmost confidence.

FAQ image

"How many people will be on the course with me?"

We want you to have the very best learning experience.

That’s why we only allow a maximum of 20 delegates per Cohort.

It means your DRE Course instructor (The Drill Sergeant) and Training Staff will be able to give you the one on one time you need to get the most of of your investment.

FAQ image

"Do you offer a guarantee?"

Yes!

If for any reason you feel that the DRE Composite Course has not lived up to your expectations, just speak to Dr Sunny at the end of the hands on day, explain why you feel that way and he will give you your money back - no stress, no problem and no hard feelings.

(By the way this has NEVER happened but the offer is genuine, that's why you have absolutely ZERO risk when you enrol).

FAQ image

"What's the point, can't I just do a crown if I can't do a composite?"

If the margins are subgingival than an indirect restoration may not help you navigate that.

First off you will need a well bonded restoration underneath for the indirect restoration to have the best chance of success. Foundations first.

Our techniques will enable you to perform deep margin elevation (DME) predictably in order to facilitate an indirect restoration even in the most difficult of subgingival situations.

Additionally you will be able to achieve proper contacts even with wide spaces directly with composite without the need to cut the patients tooth down.

FAQ image

"Will this work with amalgam?"

100% Yes!

Imagine being able to place amalgams with worrying about those dreaded overhangs and the horrid feeling of taking recall radiographs with doubt and uncertainty over the restorations integrity.

FAQ image

"I’ve used curved bands before, how is The Greater Curve® different?"

You may have used curved bands before but ours are the original and best patented Greater Curve® bands.

Our bands use proprietary metals with thicknesses that have been painstakingly developed over almost 30 years to produce a system that can be used to tackle even the most demanding of situations.

Imitation bands are thicker and have different composition. Our techniques do not work with imitation matrices.

That means they won’t get you the results you and your patients want.
