About the Speaker:
Dr. Michael Verber’s passion for dentistry and design has driven him to explore ways that new technologies can work with timeless principals. He works to combine creative solutions with systematic approaches in treatment planning for predictable results.
After graduating from Temple University School of Dentistry in 2003, Michael began his career working under the mentorship of his father in private practice. In 2011, he became a fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and began speaking at educational seminars for dental and medical professionals on TMD, treatment planning, and implant restoration. He has since become a Key Opinion Leader for Implant Direct.

· Why implant restorations have a high risk of prosthetic failure.
· Key differences between implants and teeth.
· How occlusal principals influence implant restoration.
· Advantages and disadvantages of various restoration choices.
