My Qualifications & Certifications

47 years of advanced continuing dental education, mentoring and leadership in dentistry.

Also invented and produced, with many investors and partners, a wonderful, high-speed jet turbine dental handpiece. I’m proud to say that it’s still the best in the world. Only a lack of funding and a USA recession have kept this state of the art product from exploding onto the world dental market.
