Anterior and Posterior Wax-up Course

Hugo Sousa
Nadeem Younis | BDS MSc DGDP(UK) DPDS

Course Fee: £895


This unique course is specifically designed for general dental practitioners and therapists to enable them to understand tooth anatomy and be able to reproduce the key features in wax. No previous experience is required. Equipment for waxing teeth and course notes will be provided.

I personally think understanding and recreating tooth anatomy is the missing link between average and exceptional composite resin restorations. If you want to take your composite restorations to the next level then this course is a must.

Delegates will wax up upper anterior teeth, a lower molar, and a premolar tooth.

Aims & Objectives

To enable delegates to recognise anatomical features of anterior and posterior teeth


  1. The delegate will be able to understand the relationships between the various anatomical features of the anterior and posterior teeth
  2. To be able to create both single unit anterior and posterior units in wax and incorporate the range of anatomical features
  3. To gain a comprehensive knowledge of the terminology of tooth anatomy to enhance communication within the dental team
