The PTC Ness Academy Ceramic course addresses both ends of the learning spectrum. As with every Ness Academy course these 3-1/2 day courses are suited for both the novice and expert.

This comprehensive course uses the proven methods of the PTC training systems. In three and one-half days you will study anterior anatomy, posterior anatomy, correct framework design, 10 essential components of smile design, precise porcelain mixing, advanced layering procedures, building to size, and fast and easy, step by step, anterior and posterior contouring.

The PTC Ness Academy Porcelain course is a comprehensive porcelain course that will meet the needs of anyone from beginner to accomplished technician.

Each student is given hours of individualized attention by the instructor. The products of the course are a completed six unit anterior bridge and a 4 unit posterior bridge.

This course will provide the information and hands-on experience to get started as a dental ceramist or give an owner or experienced ceramist the necessary tools to take their ceramic skills to much higher levels of quality and efficiency.

Missing fundamentals in a persons learning are the very thing that holds them back from moving forward in their careers. Every Ness Academy course emphasizes these fundamentals.
