Managing Tooth Wear

An Exclusive 6 Month Mentoring Programme With Dr Andrea Shepperson



Are you seeing tooth wear in your practice and not sure what to do with it?  Are restorations failing and you're not sure why?  Do you have a good knowledge of occlusion and managing vertical dimension?  These are daily challenges for most general dentists, often leading to long term implications for the longevity of your dentistry.  

Using a systematic approach to diagnosis, and an inter-disciplinary planning approach, Dr Andrea Shepperson will help you build a structure for assessing and managing tooth wear in your office. 

This exclusive mentoring programme aims to help dentists develop the necessary design, diagnostic skills and restorative options to diagnose and treat cases of Tooth Wear and occlusal challenges with greater confidence and predictability.

The programme combines in-person training with Dr Shepperson on Waiheke Island, online education and one to one personal coaching with your clinical case.  Geared for both analogue and digital practices, Dr Shepperson will share her extensive knowledge of Digital Smile Design, Risk Assessment based planning, occlusal concepts and an inter-disciplinary approach to care.  Full of practical and evidence-based advice, you will start to look at your patients differently and expand your range of care.  Supported by her knowledgable marketing and clinical team, there will be take-home applications for the entire dental office.

Become more confident, expand your services and deliver better long term outcomes for your patients. 


Listen to what our past attendees have to say about our course.


This programme will run for 6 months.
Dr Shepperson will host attendees at her training facility for two 2-day intensive hands-on events, combined with online learning & personalised mentoring throughout the programme.
