 What past participants have said about the course: 

It was a busy 5 days with a unique opportunity to treat patients under the guidance and instruction of Dr. Webb. The small group allowed for refining existing skills and to develop new ones for placing conservative and predictable cast gold restorations as taught by Dr. Richard V. Tucker. The opportunity to  determine treatment and best approaches for real clinical situations allowed course participants to apply those principles taught in lecture. As well, a visit to a dental lab and review of the laboratory steps involved to ensure a quality restoration, underlined the importance of good lab work. Dr. Webb and staff, participants and patients, all contributed to an enjoyable and positive educational experience… 

Dr. Gary Rubinoff, Toronto, ON 

Dr. Webb’s Tucker Cast Gold Course was a wonderful review course after my 9 years of private practice. Gold restoration techniques are the fundamental of any direct and indirect restoration and what I learned in this course has made me a better clinician. I absolutely enjoyed this course. It was indeed beyond my expectations. Dr. Webb has a comprehensive approach in the clinic, covering from various prep designs, placement of Rubber Dam to cord packing, impression making, temporizing, cementing and how to polish the gold restorations to get a smooth shiny seamless margins for best long term results. Dr. Webb is a fine and skilled clinician and a gifted coach and instructor. Her patience and undivided attention given individually to all the dentists in the clinic made this course an outstanding experience to all of us and made every minute of this course be worth it….
