    Guests must be 16 years or older to attend.

    You will embark on a fascinating journey that tells the story of how Walt Disney's desire to improve the world's future led to the development of Epcot theme park. When Walt Disney bought 27,500 acres of land in Florida, his dream was to build an Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, which he called EPCOT. EPCOT was originally intended to be a living, breathing city of the future inhabited by thousands of permanent residents. EPCOT Center, eventually to be known as Epcot theme park, was the planned entertainment center of the community.
    During this approximately 3-hour guided tour, venture into secret backstage areas of Epcot theme park and see amazing facilities that guests are ordinarily not permitted to visit. Discover how Walt Disney's vision and legacy inspired the design and technology behind the Future World area of Epcot theme park.
    Afterwards, you are invited to enjoy EPCOT on your own.

    Capture the opportunity to grow your removable practice efficiently and profitably. Join Dr. Frank Lauciello as he discusses simple steps for success using concepts and materials that are explained in practical and efficient terms. Successful restoration of the edentulous patient requires accurate transfer of essential patient information to the dental lab. If communication is inadequate or inaccurate it can be a source of extra patient appointments, loss of productivity, and patient disappointment. The articulator can be the core of this information transfer and if utilized with specialized components it can also greatly facilitate the accurate positioning of the teeth to consistently satisfy the patient’s individual smile design. Participants will have the opportunity to handle and work with most of the smile design components and also analyze the essential anatomical landmarks of edentulous casts. Although this course centers on removable procedures, the principles of smile design, articulation, and communication are applicable to all phases of dentistry.
    Educational Objectives:
    1. Use the components of the Smile Design Kit to facilitate communication for proper positioning and selection of anterior teeth using patient specific criteria
    2. Review articulation and articulators with emphasis on mounting casts to the articulator that will simulate the patient’s facial planes of orientation.

After all, many go to great lengths to artificially reproduce natural lighting using studio lights, so why not just use the real thing? Not all dental practices have the space or room to set up a photography studio. Sometimes it is not financially feasible to invest in buying photography equipment such as strobe lights, diffusers, and backgrounds. This workshop will show you how to use available window light and the natural outdoor sunlight to create beautiful portraits… and it’s free. By the end of this workshop, participants will literally see the world in a new light.

    Educational Objectives:
    1. Learn how to find and create great portrait lighting
    2. Understand light: what bad light to avoid and what good light to find
    3. Learn the camera settings to use to emphasize the model by blurring the background

Capture the opportunity to grow your removable practice efficiently and profitably. Join Dr. Frank Lauciello as he discusses simple steps for success using concepts and materials that are explained in practical and efficient terms. Successful restoration of the edentulous patient requires accurate transfer of essential patient information to the dental lab. If communication is inadequate or inaccurate it can be a source of extra patient appointments, loss of productivity, and patient disappointment. The articulator can be the core of this information transfer and if utilized with specialized components it can also greatly facilitate the accurate positioning of the teeth to consistently satisfy the patient’s individual smile design. Participants will have the opportunity to handle and work with most of the smile design components and also analyze the essential anatomical landmarks of edentulous casts. Although this course centers on removable procedures, the principles of smile design, articulation, and communication are applicable to all phases of dentistry.
Educational Objectives:
1. Use the components of the Smile Design Kit to facilitate communication for proper positioning and selection of anterior teeth using patient specific criteria
2. Review articulation and articulators with emphasis on mounting casts to the articulator that will simulate the patient’s facial planes of orientation.

In addition, microfills can add depth to a restoration, recreate nature’s inherent color variations, and interact with nano-hybrids to create a beautiful result in a simplified technique that is easy to implement in practice.

Educational Objectives:
1. Learn how to achieve an amazing shine on your composite resin restorations that will last for years
2. Understand when a microfill is the obvious choice as the perfect restorative material
3. Develop a predictable method to achieve beautiful facial contours, giving the final restoration a natural appearance to match adjacent teeth

WT426 - Fundamentals of Using Available and Natural Light Workshop

AADADHLTPGT
Recommended lecture • L228 • Thursday • 2:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Repeated Saturday, 8:30 am – 11:30 am • WT417

You will often hear professional photographers say that they prefer natural lighting to studio lighting. After all, many go to great lengths to artificially reproduce natural lighting using studio lights, so why not just use the real thing? Not all dental practices have the space or room to set up a photography studio. Sometimes it is not financially feasible to invest in buying photography equipment such as strobe lights, diffusers, and backgrounds. This workshop will show you how to use available window light and the natural outdoor sunlight to create beautiful portraits… and it’s free. By the end of this workshop, participants will literally see the world in a new light.

Educational Objectives:
1. Learn how to find and create great portrait lighting
2. Understand light: what bad light to avoid and what good light to find
3. Learn the camera settings to use to emphasize the model by blurring the background
