VieSID provides all handout material and necessary equipment for use during the course sessions, and a trial subscription to CADIAX/CADIAS software which will last for the length of the program.

Prior to the beginning of Module A all course participants will be asked to have two sets of upper and lower accurate casts fabricated with both upper casts split casted and one lower pinned. Details will be provided.

During the course days we will supply enough GAMMA Reference articulators, access to electronic condylography units, hinge axis transfer jigs, CPM’s, sundries and any other supplies necessary to complete the diagnosis. Initially participants will practice in pairs with fellow attendees to learn the procedures.
After successfully passing an examination at the end of the Module C participants receive an official diploma which is necessary to attend advanced VieSID programs in Prosthodontics and Orthodontics.
