Saturday 2nd of July

Full day Course by SODT Peter Sheffield and Dr Henrique Valdetaro

“Precise Indirect Bonding Techniques”, using the Instruments T.A.D. & B.P.D.



9:00am – 11:00 am: Introduction to Lingual Lab techniques in general and their history, including most of the inventions and innovations over the last 30 years. This will lead into the ‘raison d’etre’ for the TAD and BPD, their innovation and advantages over other systems, including a comparison of techniques used and the improvements made over the years. Plus a look at set-up models, CAD CAM philosophy and much more if time permits!


11:00 am -11:30 am:  Coffee Break


11:30 am – 13:30:  Options using the TAD and BPD plus an introduction to the B.E.S.T. system with its standard values and extraction case values using various illustrations. Discussion on why we should re-think the standard charts and the effects of a “working prescription” rather than a finishing prescription.

Participants can have a go surveying a model and using the T.T.S to derive real values for Tip and Torque. Lab Communications, model preparation, Basic set-up model procedures, via films and PPT’s, plus hands on marking of the ‘reference lines’ for bonding. Hands on using 2D height gauges and simple 2D bonding exercises.


13:30 – 14:15: Lunch


14:15 – 15:45: Dr. Henrique Valdetaro will present Clinical procedures related to lab procedures. A complete film of bonding in the mouth using silicone trays.

15:45 - 16:00: Forthcoming events with IN-tendo activities


16:00 - 16:30:  Coffee Break


16:30 pm – 18:10:  Bonding 3D using the instruments T.T.S and B.P.I. Demonstration, films and hands on for those who want to try and see how easy it is to bond a bracket!

There will be a film demonstrating the fabrication our special ‘Blue Top’ Transfer Trays made form ‘Memosil’ or a similar equivalent clear silicone.

Easy Wire templates for ‘Optimized Wires’…how to do and try to do!
