Learn practically from professionals

You live and learn
The range of topics of our workshops offered is as diverse as the dental work routine. Thanks to this broad range, dentists, dental technicians, trainees and students benefit from our know-how and numerous practical tips.
With the hands-on courses, you will have the opportunity to learn our range of systems in a well-founded and practice-oriented way. Great emphasis is on 'learning by doing'. That is why we attach great importance to practical work in our workshopsThat way, you can use what you have learned in the workshop immediately in your daily work and work more efficiently over the long term.

The Cornerstones

Your instructor
Dental technician Martin Thaden has been with Dreve for over 20 years. He co-developed many assortment items of our extensive portfolio. You benefit directly from the great wealth of experience of our instructor, who guides you very vividly and practically with many useful tips through the workshops.

What to expect
A maximum of 8 participants per course are scheduled. Thus we can offer you individual training and personal support. The workshop content covers the entire Dreve product portfolio and includes both basic knowledge as well as selected special topics. We are pleased to cater for your physical well-being with a lunch as well as soft drinks. At the end of the course you will receive a personalised certificate of participation.

So, for example, you will learn

  • how to make an occlusal splint
  • why we still consider thermoforming as indispensable
  • why our Dreve Mouthguards are so much better than ready-made mouthguards
  • how to gain up to 50 percent of the time in denture manufacturing

For over 40 years thermoforming technique forms a solid foundation in various fields of dentistry and belongs in any laboratory for daily use. This technique is particularly economical in the production of all types of splints up to mouthguards. The production of occlusal splints serves above all for the perfect preparation of the temporomandibular joint for a subsequent definitive restoration.

Theoretical part ppt. (about 2h plus translation time if necessary)

  • Treatment concept based on a patient case
  • Medical basics
  • Reasons and explanations for the individual steps
  • Detailed description of material and the individual work steps
  • Tips and tricks
  • Open discussion

Practical part (about 4h plus translation time if necessary)

  • Preparing an occlusal splint through the course participants on their own models

Individual mouthguard has increasingly become a part of general protection not ony exclusively for professional athletes, but especially for recreational athletes. In times of increasing costs for dental prosthesis in combination with dangerous trend sports like skate boarding, inline skating and biking as well as martial arts the mouthguard should be worn as prophylaxis system. The international Dreve mouthguard system is perfectly adapted to articulated models to the oral situation of athletes, color and design are freely selectable.

Theoretical part

  1. ppt. provides an informative lecture about the mouthguard, explains the function and the differences to converted mouthguards and shows the different risks of injury with and without individual mouthguards on the basis of international investigations.

Practical part

  • Function and use of the Drufomat scan
  • Preparing a mouth guard by the course participant on their own models.

Snoring is an often neglected common disease worldwide. The dangers associated with snoring are often unknown, but can have a significant impact on the quality of life of those affected. The temporary closure of the respiratory system by the tongue or the soft palate can lead to an oxygen deficiency, which can lead to daytime fatigue and lack of concentration depending on intensity to strokes and heart attacks. This obstruction of the airways can be reliably reduced respectively completely eliminated in many cases by the DocSnoreNix® splint system. The delicate construction as well as the individual adaptation on the respective patient case ensure a comfortable wearing comfort and provide immediate help for a restful sleep.

Theoretical part
In a PowerPoint presentation, the causes of snoring from medical and environmental aspects are examined, the functional principle of DocSnoreNix® explained and compared to the many anti-snoring products on the market.

Practical part

  • Function and use of the Drufomat scan 
  • Independent manufacturing of a splint by the course participants taking into account the medical and technical possibilities and limits

Please bring

Topic „Denture manufacturing“

The manufacture of full dentures has always been one of the main pillars of every dental laboratory. In order to make this economically successful, material and working time must be optimally coordinated . The Castdon manufacturing system allows, inter alia, the perfect reproduction of all details modeled in wax, without the need for elaborate reworking in the plastic denture. The time saved in comparison to other manufacturer systems lies between 30 and 50%.

Theoretical part (about 1.5 h plus translation time if necessary)

  • Presentation of the Castdon system and the individual components
  • Advantages of embedding silicone
  • Material science / chemical physical backgrounds
  • Comparison with other manufacturing systems
  • Use of Castdon in partial dentures
  • Tips und tricks
  • Open discussion and round of questions

In times of increasing sense of aesthetic appeal of patients, conventional monochrome resin prosthodontics are often no longer adequate. With Denture Art resin, the first completely opaque and color-freely customizable dental resin was developed, which reliably covers metal structures even at low layer thicknesses.

The light-curing colour system Lightpaint On by Klaus Müterthies also allows to adapt prefabricated teeth in color to an existing residual teeth respecitvely to realize an authentic age-appropriate surface characterization. There are practically no limits to artistic design possibilities. The result: dentures that can not be distinguished from a natural tooth structure even at second glance.

Theoretical part (ppt ca. 1.5h)
