Dr. Wayne Remington: A graduate of Temple University School of Dentistry in 1982 and the University of Virginia Medical Center General Practice Residency in 1984, Dr. Remington has been in private general and esthetic restorative dentistry since 1984. In addition, he has been a Clinical Assistant Professor of Dentistry at the University of Virginia, teaching esthetic dentistry.
Dr. Remington has been using a microscope in restorative practice since 1997 and been teaching two-day hands-on courses since 1999. His courses are designed to teach a maximum of four individuals at a time for personalized attention.
Students will learn the parts of the microscope and how to par focalize the microscope and customize it to their eyes. Then they will do some eye-hand coordination exercises to allow them to move their hands appropriately with indirect and with direct vision on the maxillary arch. Veneer and full crown preparations will be made on a maxillary anterior tooth and a preparation (either cavity preparation, inlay, onlay or crown) will be performed on a maxillary posterior tooth. All course material will be provided by AMED at the course. Students should wear a lab coat or similar covering to protect their clothes from ivorine dust and debris. Students should also bring a pair of loupes for comparison of loupes vs microscope perspective. We encourage students to bring a model with a recent crown preparation for examination under microscopic view to see their work at 5-21X magnification. Any student wishing to bring their own particular crown preparation burs are encouraged to do so.
