Denture Engineer since 1977
Dentures, Partials, Implants, Comb cases with bridges, and most importantly sleep apnea invention www.oralsleepapnea.com. I started in the Engineering field first, then changed to the technician area for income reasons, became a father. I took on many responsibilities such as dental lab owner parent and Chair-side Consultant.
With a strong and comprehensive background in the field of oral removable prosthetics, I have owned and operated a dental laboratory for over 30 years. Through that business, I make all of my own dentures, chrome partial frame works, implant bars, orthotics and sleep apnea devices. As an expert in the field, specializing in the nature of the bite, I am regularly consulted on cases, especially regarding placement of sleep apnea devices. There is even a patent pending for a successful sleep apnea device that I have developed.
With regards to teaching, I speak regularly about sleep apnea devices and sleep apnea in general throughout the dental professionals' community, and I have been giving chair-side instruction in the area of implants for many years directly to general dentists, oral surgeons, TMJ specialists, and periodontists throughout the San Gabriel Valley area. I addition to that, I have also taught formally in the dental clinic at USC and at the Long Beach Dental Training Center.
If you were to hire me to instruct your students, you would find me to be extremely knowledgeable in the area of oral removable prosthetics and that I can expertly convey that expertise to others for complete understanding.
