Esthetic Professionals (EP) Dental Education Center is responding to practicing dentists that want comprehensive hands-on and clinical education presented in a more time efficient format. Starting October 2021, the Comprehensive Esthetic and Restorative Mentorship will have a 4 + 1 format. Instead of 8 monthly 2 day sessions, we are now having 4, 3 day sessions with 1 additional day. In addition: residents will view 5 webinars, have full access to all of EP’s online education programs and free “EP Elite membership” that includes lab discounts.

The ultimate goal of the new curriculum will be to give dentists and their team the knowledge and experience necessary to build practices that are rewarding both financially and personally.

All AACD accreditation topics are covered. Our alumni consists of almost 5-10% of all accredited members, several fellows, and 3 past and future presidents.
