Michelle S. Mirsky, DDS

Associate Clinical Professor, Division of Operative Dentistry, Columbia University College of Dental Medicine


How much can you do in your office to prepare for a case? or should your lab do everything? 

Are chairside veneers an alternative? 

Learn how to evaluate your models and how to use photos to get your best esthetic results.

How long should your restorations last?  What you can do to achieve longevity in this economy.

Please bring your cases for discussion.


Held every 6-8 weeks, this study club is designed for practitioners who want to bring their esthetic or cosmetic practice to the next level, whether you are a new graduate or an experienced dentist. Participants are encouraged to bring their own cases for discussion. Different topics are covered each session.

Dr. Mirsky will include case presentations discussing: combined treatment modalities, anterior implants and veneers and  all ceramic crowns.

Learn how to:

  • Temporize implants when you are immediate loading. Should you use custom abutments or stock abutments?
  • Use trial smiles when presenting esthetic cases.
  • Use your photographic skills to treatment plan.
  • See what your patient is seeing when they want to change their smiles.


At the conclusion of the course you will be able to improve your techniques, communicate with laboratories and have a stress free dental experience for you and your patient.
