Doctor of Dental Surgery
Diplomate, American Board of Oral Implantology

I am a board certified traveling dental implant surgeon practicing in Santa Barbara, California.  I also travel back to Phoenix, Arizona to train doctors interested in placing dental implants in their own practices.


I Help Doctors Increase Their Confidence and Competency with Dental Implants

Over-The-Shoulder Surgical Mentorship

Most doctors start placing implants after a weekend long hands-on CE course.  In most entry level courses the doctor does not place implants on live patients prior to returning to their office to introduce the techniques to their staff and patients. My first foray into implant surgery was the same, not easy to bring it back to the office with confidence!  Failure to launch in implant dentistry is an expensive pill to swallow.  Many doctors just need a little push and support to get the ball rolling in their practices and encourage team buyin.  

In my previous role as the Chief Clinical Officer and Lead Instructor at Implant Pathway, I've helped personally train over 1,000 dentists take their surgical skills to the next level, and many doctors came back for more and more advanced coursework.  There is nothing like live surgery with over-the-shoulder mentorship to help things 'click', all the while treating YOUR patients in YOUR office.  

I work with doctors to select a day's worth of appropriate surgical cases from patient selection, treatment planning, to surgical execution and final restorative planning.  Don't make the expensive mistake of not following through on costly dental implant CE. Have your own patients help you pay for direct surgical mentoring, and start offering higher value services in your practice, immediately.
