Tif Qureshi qualified from Kings College London in 1992. He is a partner at Dental Elegance in Sidcup, Kent where he practices minimally invasive cosmetic and restorative dentistry. He is the Past President of the Brisish Academey of Cosmetic Dentistry. He was the first dentist in the UK to pioneer and develop the Inman Aligner concept and its protocols. He is a clinical director of IAS Academy, an International faculty that provides mentored education for general dentists on a pathway from appropriate simple to comprehensive orthodontics (www.inmanalignertraining.com).

Tif also pioneered the concept of Progressive Smile Design through Alignment Bleaching, Bonding and is also an experienced teacher in the Dahl concept to assist in minimally invasive, patient-centred dentistry. Tif now lectures nationally and internationally and has had many articles published on all these subjects.

Don't miss out on a great days education and great company!!

First Session

Straightening teeth is not just an aesthetic treatment because teeth continue to move throughout ones’ life, so all patients with even mild anterior crowding are at risk of increasing crowding, occlusal instability and uneven wear. Tif will talk about how simple anterior tooth alignment combined with bleaching and bonding, can be one of the most minimally invasive ways of improving smiles in a more progressive ethical way. As a result it has become a treatment every General dentist should be able to offer an critically be able to pick what and what not to chose

 The lecture will cover the basics for simple tooth alignment planning, orthodontic examination and records, consenting patients with the latest techniques in digital analysis and planning, space creation, and the most reliable retention methods as well as long term follow up.

Tif will also cover the use of modern composite materials for simple non-invasive edge bonding that can also improve the patients function, guidance and prevent natural, ageing, occlusal changes and the use of simultaneous bleaching technique. The concept of Progressive smile design (PSD) through ABB (Alignment, Bleaching and bonding) can mean that any dentist in any practice can offer safe, aesthetic patient led treatments- for many more patients than the traditional approaches.

 Participants will learn to Implement the “Alignment, Bleaching and Bonding” (ABB) Protocol into their General Practice. This includes:

  • Assessment, diagnosis and planning- Know the protocols and planning of simple tooth alignment.
  • Case selection - What to treat and what to refer - working with your orthodontist.
  • Understand the process of simultaneous tooth whitening.
  • The process of Edge bonding. 
  • Understand the practical use of ABB interceptive restorative dentistry.

 Second Session

There are many solutions to the treatment of tooth wear, such as using porcelain veneers or crowns for local treatment or even full mouth rehabilitation. While large scale ceramic treatments might be life-changing for some people, for many they can be argued as destructive over treatment and a lack of focus on simpler, less expensive treatments means that many patients are not offered these options because dentists are simply unaware of them.

The lecture will also focus on intercepting diagnosing these cases earlier, looking at inter-canine widths, anterior guidance, envelope of function, constricted chewing patterns, differential tooth wear  and being able to correct this with Simple Orthodontics and Restorative dentistry. 

This Session includes:

 1) Understanding the importance of Anterior Orthodontic Occlusal Planning through digital control.

2) The Dahl Principle[2] in Orthodontics Step by Step- Natural and Assisted Equilibration.

3) Treating patients over the lifetime - observing wear and functional change - Intercepting with ortho-restorative treatment.

4) Envelope of function and constricted chewing patterns.

 This full packed day very uniquely connects restorative dentistry, aesthetics, function and orthodontics, and is backed up by long case follow ups and will benefit dentists, specialists and the tea. This has the potential to change the way dentists approach all their patients and the options they offer. It will make you look at things differently and apply a strategy to patients over a lifetime versus just treating them from day to day.

[1] Dahl principle- This refers to the relative axial tooth movement that is observed when a localised appliance or localised restorations are placed in supra-occlusion and the occlusion re-establishes full arch contacts over a period of time.
