His clinical and research qualities, together with his didactic skills, are internationally
recognized. He is an invited speaker in the most prestigious International Congresses and he is
the scientific, he is didactic coordinator of several activities involving different International
Universities and invited Professor in several international universities.
He has been honorary professor at the Ukrainian Academy of Medical Stomatology since 2006

clinical Staff, setting-up within the University of Chieti one of the worldwide most advanced
center in the field of Restorative Dentistry, Adhesive Prosthodontics and Occlusal Problems.
In parallel with the clinical activities, at the University of Chieti he coordinates a dynamic
research group, that has become over the years a reference point in Europe for the biomechanical
studies on dental materials employed in Restorative Dentistry and Adhesive Prosthodontics and
is particularly interested in the materials to be used for the full mouth rehabilitation of patients
with parafunctions or TMJ disorders.
His clinical and scientific knowledge about the problems, the procedures and the materials
related to the oral rehabilitation of parafunctional and dysfunctional patients led to the
publication of a textbook titled “E.F.P. (Esthetical-Functional-Postural) Clinical Approach”
(ACME edition), together with Dr. Lorenzo Vanini.

Prof. Dr. Camillo D’Arcangelo
In recent years, restorative dentistry procedures have undergone profound changes due to the
development of adhesive techniques.
Dentists started using adhesive procedures only for direct restorations about 25 years ago. Day
after day the use of restorations have become more and more extensive and indirect techniques
have been utilized to make veneers, onlays and overlays using different types of composite and
During the lecture will be described step by step, all the procedures how to be successful in
adhesive dentistry, by performing minimally invasive restorations or even additive techniques. In
particular: minimally invasive preparation techniques and no-prep techniques; modern color
selection procedures, selective criteria between total-etch or self-etch techniques, polymerization,
refining and polishing procedures.
In addition, the correct procedures for the total rehabilitation of parafunctional patients or ATM
disorders patients will be described using addictive prosthesis techniques to improve aesthetics,
occlusion and often the posture of the patient.
Finally, the properties of the different adhesive materials and the selecting criteria for the
adequate material, for each clinical case will be analyzed.
