"What a difference Dr. Gerber’s courses have made in the way that I practice dentistry. There is so much that I have learned from him that was not available to me through dental school. His training has allowed me to help kids and patients grow into more attractive, healthy and functional adults...what a difference he has made for me and the hundreds of others that he has helped along the way."
