Institute Vision & Summary
For some, dentistry is work, and for others it is passion. If you are passionate about doing the best dentistry possible, The Nejad Institute will give you the knowledge, science-based evidence, restorative techniques, and inspiration to excel.
The Nejad Institute curriculum is taught exclusively by Dr. Matt Nejad internationally recognized esthetic and biomimetic dentist. The courses combine science and engineering to thoroughly understand the properties and biomechanics of natural teeth and apply these to all restorative and esthetic dentistry. The biomimetic approach utilizes materials and techniques to mimic the biomechanics of natural teeth while conserving healthy, intact tooth structure and avoiding complications from traditional restorative techniques. Every course is updated regularly to include new scientific evidence, materials, and techniques. There are annual courses to provide the updates for those who have completed past training, and there is in-office mentoring and training available by request.
