Confident Smile Makeover Masterclass – Cardiff

Join Dr. Qureshi & IAS Academy to empower dentists to confidently treat their patients with the best and most ethical treatments.

Course Overview

IAS Academy has partnered with Optident to deliver ortho-restorative education based on successful aligner therapy aimed at General Dental Practitioners.

The Confident Smile Makeover allows you to combine cosmetic treatments to achieve a stunning smile in one treatment process.

Dr Tif Qureshi qualified from Kings College London in 1992. He is a Past President of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Tif is the founder and clinical director of IAS Academy, an international faculty that provides mentored education for general dentists on a pathway from appropriate simple to comprehensive orthodontics. Tif has a special interest in simple orthodontics and truly minimally invasive dentistry. An experienced teacher in the Dahl concept, Tif shows how this technique is used to plan tooth alignment and minimise invasive dentistry in developing a beautiful smile.

The course encompasses two courses in one; day one is the Removable Appliances Course (covering Aligners) and day two is the Ortho Restorative course (covering White Dental Beauty Whitening gels & Composite).

This 2-day course gives dentists the confidence to deliver a complete solution to their patients. By the end of these two days, attendees will be able to handle simple to moderate alignment cases and everything needed to finish cases post-orthodontics and ensure long-term stability and function.

Included is access to the mentoring platform, allowing clinicians to post their first case for Suitability Checks, Treatment Plan Discussions and Full Case Support.
