His main areas of interest are Prosthodontics (Implantology and Fixed prosthodontics), Short-term orthodontics (Invisalign) and minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry.

He finds that this continued education allows him to provide the highest standards of care as he stays attuned with the latest developments, techniques, technology and materials available in the market.
