Associateship Key Dates Calendar

Read what Dr Michael Frazis has to say about digital dentistry...

“Becoming more confident and knowledgeable about in-office milling has allowed me to control all parts of the dental procedure.

It’s astronomically helped me in other areas of dentistry as well. As I start to do more of the work digitally, I learn all the techniques labs use to shape teeth and also to perform the work they do.

By printing my own study models I’m able to better plan my cases as I can have the models the same day rather than waiting a few weeks to get work back from the lab.”  - Dr Michael Frazis

Frequently Asked Questions

 If I don’t have CEREC, can I still enrol in the course?

If your clinic is not using CEREC and if you don't plan on investing in CEREC, we don’t recommend this course for you. If your clinic is using CEREC but you don’t have access to it on weekends or after hours for the course, you can still enrol in the course, but please contact our Pathway Advisor before enrolling so we can ensure we have a space available at one of the Dentsply Sirona facilities where you can do your hands-on training. 

If you have any questions or concerns as to whether this course is for you, please contact our Pathway Advisors for more guidance and information. 

Can I attend just one or two courses?

Yes, you can purchase any of the courses as stand-alone courses. However we
won’t be covering content that is being taught in the other courses, it’ll be assumed you have the necessary knowledge required for the course you’re attending. 

What does the curriculum cover?

The Digital Aesthetic and Rehabilitation Dentistry with CEREC Associateship consists of 3 courses. Course 1 will cover Anterior Makeovers, Course 2 will cover Posterior Makeovers and Course 3 will cover Tooth Replacement.

All courses will teach you to better use your CEREC and milling machine to get lab quality results.

How will the hands-on days work?

Hands-on days can be executed from your clinic or at a Dentsply Sirona facility in major city centres (Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth). Spaces are limited for the Dentsply Sirona facilities, please contact your Pathway Advisor before enrolling in the course to confirm your space.

During the Hands-on days, you will be connected to your cohort and educator through world-class hardware and software, so that you can communicate directly with your educator using multiple camera angles that allow us to see exactly what you are doing over the shoulder, and for us to demonstrate techniques to you one-on-one. 

How do I access the course learning materials?

At the beginning of the course term during orientation week you will receive access (via a welcome email with instructions) to all the learning materials and timetable.

How will I receive feedback during the course?

Throughout the course(s), you can talk to your educators to ask questions. You and your cohort have multiple opportunities to work together in small groups. Your educators will observe your work and offer feedback, instructions, and one-on-one demonstrations which we are well-known for, during hands-on sessions and assessments.

I am not confident with technology, is there support?

We have spent a lot of time developing the technology and resources to be simple to implement. During orientation you will gain access to instructional videos and a step by step guide on how to set up your equipment and cameras. Our team will be able to help you through the initial set up if you have any issues.

When do I receive access to the Premium Membership?

If you purchase the individual courses you will be given access to your bonus 3 months of Premium Membership immediately via email with a link.

Is it mandatory to purchase the Equipment Package from RipeGlobal?

You are required to have the needed equipment for each course. If you do not purchase the packages from RipeGlobal, it will be assumed you have what’s needed to execute the Hands-on days and assignments. Please contact a Pathway Advisor for any clarification.

Is there a warranty on the mandatory equipment I purchase for the course?

There will be no warranty for general wear and tear, or misuse of damage. Please see terms and conditions.

Will I need to provide anything to undertake the Digital Aesthetic and Rehabilitation Dentistry with CEREC Associateship?

Yes, please check the consumables and instrument list for course requirements. In most parts of the world, you can access these from your normal channels at lower cost than we can, even with sponsorship.

To focus on our vision of making education more available and accessible, it is more efficient for you to acquire your own consumables. We also want to avoid teaching you on a material that you will never use. We are happy for you to substitute your own brand if you prefer, as it is about technique more than materials.

What are the assessment activities for each course?

Each course is composed of various assessments and may include one or more case presentations including clinical photography and treatment planning documentation, hands-on tasks, written literature reviews, timebound quizzes or exams and are weighted accordingly. During orientation week you will receive your course outline including assessment guidelines, timeline and requirements. 

What is involved with case presentations?

Hands-On sessions for the Australian timezone most often fall on Saturday mornings. These sessions are compulsory to pass the course. If you have any questions or need clarification on the Hands-on times and dates, please contact your Pathway Advisor.

RipeGlobal

Provider ID# 386578 

Will I receive a Certificate?

Yes. You will receive a digital CPD Certificate on completion of each course. To achieve a RipeGlobal Associateship status and receive your plaque at graduation, you must successfully pass your assessment for Digital Aesthetic and Rehabilitation Dentistry with CEREC.

What about Internet Network Connection?

Students require their own internet connection with adequate quality and speed to perform the equivalent of a high resolution video call for the duration of any live elements of the course.

How many contact hours per week is expected?

Each of the 3 courses is broken up into roughly 12 weeks of learning with a 4 week break between each course. The average contact hours per week with your educators is approximately 3. This includes 1 to 2 hours of lectures and question and answer sessions held in the evening and hands-on days held on the weekend. View the calendar here.

Is this course accredited with a University?

RipeGlobal courses are NOT accredited with a university, and here’s why:

  • Our courses are boldly unique and delivered in pioneering ways. We would not have the flexibility to create paradigm-changing education if we were affiliated with a university.
  • Our curriculum is skills-focused and underscored by human factors and fail first training methods, as opposed to theory-heavy courses one finds in universities.
  • The cost of becoming affiliated with an institution would double or (likely) triple the cost of the course, without providing any further benefit to our students.
  • Becoming accredited with a university would potentially circumvent our mission which is to provide the highest quality dental education in the world that is affordable and accessible to all dentists so they can become confident and competent, and keep their patients safe.
  • While affiliation might be impressive to your resume, it will not necessarily make you a better dentist, as a high number of universities offer programs with almost no hands-on training.
