As a dentist who practices within the largest lab in the US, Dr. DiTolla has access to tens of thousands of doctor’s preps and impressions on a monthly basis. As a result, he has an intimate knowledge of the common habits of the dentists getting the best restorative results. As a self-proclaimed “average dentist”, he has developed techniques that provide exceptional restorative results with a very average set of hands. His mission is to share these techniques with dentists to help them improve their preps, impressions, and restorations. When dentists perform better restorative dentistry they are happier, more profitable, and most importantly, the patient receives excellent restorative dentistry.
