Please note that we have postponed this course until further notice due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

In consultation with Dr Giuseppe Chiodera, the SAAAD Executive has taken the difficult decision to postpone this event as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 situation in Italy.

Although not personally affected by the virus, Guiseppe is quarantined at home in northern Italy, with travel limitations imposed on everyone in the region. He's dealing with the impact this has on his family, as well as with his practice closure. As there is no predictable timeline as to when this situation will change back to normal, we have no alternative but to cancel the course until further notice at this point.

We will be processing refunds to all who have paid and reopening registration when we have new dates available.

We wish Guiseppe, and all those affected by the viral outbreak, strength at this critical time, and regret and apologise for any inconvenience caused to our registered delegates.

From the creator of 'The Essential Lines', we bring you:

Having seen him entertain and share his practical approach to everyday dentistry, SAAAD is proud to bring Dr Giuseppe Chiodera to Cape Town. An Honorary Member of and publisher in the Style Italiano Group, Dr Chiodera will present a full-day program exploring the tips and tricks that will make your composite dentistry easier. From shade selection to matrixes, from anterior to posterior, single teeth or multiple, this program will cover all the essentials of modern-day composites.

"One of the most entertaining and practical lectures I have been to."
Dr Riaan Wolfaardt

"What a great lecturer and friend. I use his techniques and tips every day."
Dr Evert Burger

With a sizeable hands-on component, this practical course will cover a selection of topics to assist you with your direct restorative technique, both anterior and posterior. You will also have the chance to try the Essential Lines technique to obtain predictable posterior tooth anatomy, and explore the use of single mass restorations in restoring function and aesthetics in the anterior.
