as one of the program's primary benefactors. The partnership will allow VITA to develop course curriculum with CCADS in several core competencies, including restorative esthetics and shade communication. CCADS is a postgraduate dental education program that offers training, live, hands-on clinical experience, year-round support and mentorship, and a learning environment with locally delivered programs. The CCADS program is composed of two key parts: the Core Excellency Series, consisting of a one-day, hands-on typodont course, a four-day, Level 2 live patient hands-on course, a four-day, Level 3 live patient hands-on course, and the CCADS study clubs. The level of hands-on work CCADS provides and the support participants receive during training from their instructors, peers, program managers and laboratory staff has made the program a top choice for continuing dental education. “As a global leader in restorative dentistry, VITA will be working with CCADS to develop curriculum that adds to their already dynamic education program,” explains Gil Villavecer, vice president, business development for Vident. “We see this partnership as in ideal fit between the two companies, allowing us to pursue our mutual goal of advancing esthetic dentistry.”For more information, call (800) 828-3839 or visit read more about Vident, go to Vident.To comment on this topic, go to
