Vishal Gupta - Direct Composite Extraordinare

By Chantelle Anink on 17/11/2021 12:14:39 PM

He is an internationally acclaimed educator in aesthetic dentistry with special emphasis on direct composite restorations and indirect ceramic restorations. Here at RipeGlobal, Vishal is one of our most popular educators. Students love his passion and skills, many of which were self-taught and underscored by his mantra, find a way or make one.

Vishal is a dentist who pursues excellence. Gifted with a naturally spiritual comportment, as well as wisdom and strength gained from years of marathon and ultra-distance running, Vishal has forged the material, spiritual, and intellectual elements of life on his terms. 

Ahead of his upcoming Masterclass, I asked Vishal about his journey from dentistry school to becoming one of the most sought-after educators in the world.

Dr Lane Ochi - The Dentist, The Artist, The Man.

By Chantelle Anink on 02/10/2020 8:25:55 AM

There is a language to colour and we all have to learn it, says Dr Lane Ochi. I finished watching the incomparable lecture, Application of Colour Theory in Restorative Dentistry a cup of coffee ago. It plays for an hour, but it took me two with all my pauses and note taking. When you watch it, you will relate. It feel like I have learned an entire terms worth of colour education at a fancy art school who only employ warmly spoken world class educators who elucidate in  gorgeous buttery sentences like, We are not chasing perfection, we want believability; think of colour as occurring in a circle.

Michael Frazis Masterclass - A Choose Your Own Adventure Story

By Chantelle Anink on 08/09/2020 2:40:43 PM

A patient makes an emergency appointment, and arrives at your clinic with her hand holding her cheek. You notice that her eyes look tired. An examination reveals a cracked upper right premolar and immediate extraction is required. Thirty minutes later, the premolar is removed and you begin to discuss what her options are.

Q: Do You? 

  • Offer an Implant: Go to section one.
  • Offer a Fixed Bridge: Go to section two.
  • Offer Dentures, Cantilever bridges, Maryland bridges and everything in between: Go to section three.
  • Offer nothing, but you'd love to read a story about Jill and see what happened to her: Go to section four.
