VDEC: State of the Art Teaching Facility

The Centre offers a “state of the art” teaching facility including a lecture/wet lab area for tuition and workshops, individual work stations each equipped with high and low speed drills, air-water syringes, and quick disconnects for ultrasonic scalers.

Each dental work station has complete instrumentation for the course taught. In addition, on site there are Acteon XMind DC dental radiographic xray generators, Sopix2 DR sensors, PSPix CR plates and computers, amalgamators and a model cutter. Each attendee has access to their own set of Cislak/USI instruments, loupes, dental models and specimens.

Small groups and longer laboratory time provide the attendees with the chance to fully learn and put into practice the new techniques.

Each course fee also includes a kit of instruments to take home. Couple this with the relaxed informal environment which allows for a better learning and you have all the ingredients for a successful educational and professional experience.
