“Our CENTER and its curriculum provides the dental professional with the opportunity to expand his or her patient base and to offer current patients a more stable solution to occlusal rehabilitation, occlusal failures, orthodontics and orofacial pain,” states Dr. Gerber. “The value realized from our courses goes beyond monetary rewards. It offers the dental team a fresh perspective on the practice of dentistry.”
