This relaxed, informal and interactive workshop highlights some of the latest guides, aids and automated sharpeners that can be used to achieve sharp cutting edges on scalers and curettes. Participants will be guided through a series of hands-on exercises which will actively focus on simplification of various "manual" sharpening techniques, utilization of various sharpening guides and aides and implementation of automated power sharpening devices.
