The John McLean Fellowship invites you to it’s 2018 symposium:
Managing the broken down tooth-restoration complex - when to intervene, how and with what?

Friday 2 March, 2018
The Robens Suite, Floor 29, Guy’s Hospital Tower Wing, London, SE1 9RT

Chairs: Dave Winkler and Nairn Wilson

In the current climate of the baby boomer population attending clinics with failing large posterior and anterior toothrestoration complexes, this is proving to be a difficult clinical problem to manage.

The McLean Symposium 2018 puts together an expert panel of internationally renowned experts to explain how to manage this clinical conundrum ethically; how to diagnose problems before they manifest themselves and how to intervene and with what materials and techniques.

This symposium will attract 3.5 CPD credits.
