Before attending the advanced restorative continuum at FACE, complex cases were more of a frustration than an enjoyable endeavor. The knowledge and training has not only made dentistry more predictable and fun, it saved my career. Dentistry is too challenging to spend a lifetime doing it the wrong way – FACE showed me the right way.
– Brian Broadwell, DDS

The FACE 18 month program provided me with a tremendous amount of confidence in my ability to provide predictable dental care to my patients. I now look forward to delivering occlusal splints because I have been so successful with the FACE method. In addition, I feel confident delivering resin-based fillings without post-op sensitivity as well as treating complex full-mouth cases. The FACE program is an amazing value, considering the amount of one-on-one time we get to spend with incredibly skilled instructors who really care about their students’ success.
– Dr. Eric McRory, Bellingham, WA

Accepting the challenge to complete the Continuum at FACE is one of the most career-changing decisions any dentist can make. You may be considering FACE to gain more information about full mouth rehabilitation, and indeed that will occur. But, be warned, the scope and depth of information freely given in this series of lectures will expand your mind far beyond rehab skills. You will begin to “see” your patient’s needs and your dental options through different eyes. As you watch your results in every aspect of dentistry change and improve, you too will come to appreciate what FACE training can accomplish. Tom Basta teaches with a passion for excellence that is very rare in today’s world. You will not regret this decision.
