Esthetic Guide
    Many of you may remember me from Synspar, OPC, OPC 3G, Sculpture Fibrecore, HeraCeram, and HeraCeram Press.  In 1996 I developed and liscenced pressable techniques that are still used daily world wide, they doubled production capacity while solving problems of color stability,ceramic integrity, and thermal cracking. 
    I pioneered processing techniques for lithium discilicate in 1998 and introduced it in 1999 to the nation in Chicago.  In 2003 I defined firing techniques for Heraeus Kulzer's quartz glass ceramic HeraCeram.
    I was issued a patent for the Visual Elements Technique and the Esthetic Guide in 2004.  Continuing to specialize in esthetic, reconstructive, and implant supported dentistry my passion is to teach.
