Syllabus of the Institute

Dr. Richard Tucker & Dennis M. Miya

A few years ago, Dick Tucker and I were having lunch at the Meany Hotel and we talked about creating a clinical course in Seattle where dentists could learn about conservative gold castings.
There seemed to be a need for such a course since the only way a dentist could learn a good technique at that time was through participation in a study club. Dick had taught a five day clinical course for many years at the University of British Columbia. The ideal scenario would be to provide courses for dentists and laboratory technicians in a private teaching facility. Hence, the concept of the Tucker Institute was conceived.There is no private facility yet, but this course and others like it, marks the beginning of our journey. I hope that the information in this syllabus and your experience in the course will be of assistance for your journey toward perfection and enjoyment of gold castings.
