10/20 Napa Valley - SOLD OUT

Hands-On Workshop: “Zirconia REINVENTED”

We didn’t invent pediatric zirconia crowns. We did something better: 

Only our NuSmile ZR Zirconia Crown System gives you a complete zirconia solution incorporating unsurpassed esthetics, durability and bioactivity along with a guarantee of ZERO risk of saliva/blood contamination. What else would you expect from the world leader in esthetic pediatric crowns?

It’s only fitting that we also reinvented pediatric zirconia crown workshops. NuSmile ZR workshops place an unmatched emphasis on hands-on training and one-on-one attention from the world's leading independent pediatric dentists. You won't just listen and watch; you'll roll up your sleeves and master our Express Prep technique for predictable and fast (4 minute) crown placement for every primary tooth position. You’ll also learn all you need to know about diagnosis, treatment planning, common errors, troubleshooting and more. The result: you'll be equipped to start implementing what you learn the minute you return to your practice.

Independent Instructor

Dr. Eric Ellis
Every Kid's Dentist and Orthodontics  |  Phoenix, AZ

"I have the best job in the world. It is always important that my pediatric patients understand their parents, my dental team, and myself are working together to take care of them. Being a father of twins born premature my family and I have been very fortunate and our challenges have made me a better husband, father and dental practitioner. Coming to the dental office should never be a traumatic experience. We usually do all our dental work in the dark, play games and have a great time while successfully completing our task."

A graduate of Case Western Reserve University’s School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Ellis was chief resident at Children’s Hospital of Michigan where he received his speciality training in pediatric dentistry. Dr. Ellis is a board certified pediatric dentist and has lectured at local, regional and national Pediatric dental meetings. Dr. Ellis is a partner in three offices in Phoenix Arizona and enjoys doing missionary work in Ethiopia.When not busy fighting tooth decay, Dr. Ellis loves spending time with his wife, two children, and his French bulldog Daisy. Dr. Ellis’ hobbies include climbing, hiking, and weight training at the gym.
