The Foundation for Advanced Continuing Education
is a teaching foundation dedicated to the advancement of the highest standards of dental treatment.
Courses are characterized by an atmosphere of openness and free exchange of ideas. The principles and techniques taught are based on scientific research and /or clinical evidence that has stood the test of time.In today’s changing world of HMO’s, and PPO’s,capitation, managed care and other third party interference in the practice of dentistry, it is invaluable to have a forum in which the philosophy, skills, and modalities necessary to develop an independent quality practice can be taught. The practices of each of the faculty at FACE are living proof that the true quality practice can flourish in any environment and it is our purpose to arm each participant with the information necessary to achieve that goal.
