Synopsis: Direct composites are underappreciated in today’s world of implants and computer-assisted ceramics. Yet, composites can sometimes be less invasive and more natural. Esthetic treatments, including diastema closure, black triangle closure, Class II, III and IV composite restorations are just the start of what can be done with the Bioclear Technique. In this Introductory course, Clinicians will learn the benefits of injection molding utilizing the Bioclear matrix systems, the core principles and pillars of the Bioclear method including biofilm removal, matrix selection, heated composite, an infinity margin prep design and the rock start polish. Clinicians will also be able to participate in a hands-on learning exercise which will help demonstrate how these practices can be implemented into everyday clinical life.
Dr. Rafael Bustamante, DDS, graduated from the University of Lethbridge in 2000 with a degree in Biochemistry and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Alberta in 2004. He adopted the use of the dental operating microscope in early 2005. He is certified in all levels, has completed the Master Track Accreditation and is on the Faculty at the Bioclear Learning Center. In a joint venture with CRD, he has supported the formation of the first Bioclear Study Club in Canada. He has participated in many virtual and live courses to clinicians from all over the continent introducing and teaching the Bioclear Method to them.
He thrives on the quest for exactness in restorative dentistry and he feels most fulfilled when restoring teeth using the Bioclear Method or when performing either surgical or non-surgical endodontics. When he is not obsessing over tenths of a millimeter under the microscope, he is volunteering in the community, grilling anything over a roaring fire, reading a non-fiction book or enjoying a quiet evening with his wife and children.
