Your Dental Education Faculty

Our Faculty not only lectures extensively, they are also all in private practice. We work with instructors that publish articles in their fields of expertise; that are up-to-date and practice what they teach. This allows our attendees to not only learn the most current surgical techniques, but also techniques that work in a private practice setting.
