Course Description


The Founder of Style Italiano comes to India with Dental ED. Style Italiano is a worldwide movement centred on simplifying the creation of beautiful composite restorations. Rather than focusing on complicated layering techniques and multiple colours, the Style Italiano philosophy involves using simple recipes of just two shades to create beautiful restorations, in both the anterior and posterior dentitions which can be reproduced by dentists at all skill levels. The main objective of the hands-on component of the course is to illustrate the properties and use of composite materials in today’s contemporary restorative dentistry concepts. Step-by-step procedures of the most recent techniques used in conservative restorations of the vital and nonvital teeth will also be reviewed. In this 3 day comprehensive hands on course, the founder of the world wide popular “Style Italiano”, Walter Devoto, will teach participants at any skill level, to create the most beautiful composite restorations in clinical practice. For the first time, this course teaches participants to manage multiple case scenarios in both anterior and posterior restorations, including direct and indirect restorations. This course is one of the most extensive composite hands on course offered today and one of a kind by Style Italiano.
