This program will provide a clinically-based and systematic approach aimed at helping clinicians with treatment planning and the decision-making process for edentulous and partially edentulous patients with fixed and removable prostheses. This process requires balancing patient preferences and finances with a number of clinical factors. Since the choice of fixed versus removable options for both provisional and definitive prostheses is often the most difficult step in treatment planning, special attention will be given to considerations for both.
1. Understand principles, theory, and procedures of full arch restorative dentistry options
