Cosmetic & General Dentist in Newport Beach, CA.

What is the Kois Center

The Kois Center is an advanced graduate didactic and clinical program for practicing dentists. The Center features a comprehensive nine-course curriculum, with the latest advances in esthetics, implant and restorative dentistry. The curriculum is based upon the mission statement: “Enabling motivated dentists to achieve extraordinary levels, expanding knowledge and application skills in restorative dentistry.

Why is the Kois Center Unique

The curriculum is taught almost exclusively by Dr. John C. Kois, using the Kois Research Center research. The Kois Center is the only continuing education program in the country conducting and publishing independent research. Every course is updated each year based on new scientific evidence. Some of our courses, like Biomechanics I & II, are based solely on our own research. The Kois Center uses the best and most current technology to facilitate and support the learning environment including: computer animation, live video demonstrations, video cameras with simultaneous multiple input feeds, high tech dental office and laboratory interface with our conference room. We have small class sizes of up to 37 students, as well as guidance and assistance during courses from Mentors and the Clinical Instructor. These individuals provide a supportive and highly interactive learning environment both before, during, and after the course. Once students complete the Kois Center curriculum they become a Graduate of the Center and are invited to attend the Annual Symposium. The Annual Symposium is an opportunity to network with Kois Center Graduates and their families, in addition to learning about the latest updates to the curriculum. The Kois Center is a self-funded learning center. We do not accept sponsorship funding and are not swayed by the agenda or message of sponsors.

Extensive Education

Graduates have completed all nine courses in the curriculum at the Center. Once students become graduates, they have the opportunity to attend an Annual Symposium where current updates based on new studies are discussed.
