“I believe Supra-gingival dentistry is better for the patient because it makes the maintenance of the restoration easier, the gums are always healthier when the restoration is away from the gums. The preparations tend to be more conservative. I have almost no complaints of discomfort after the procedure, and the restorations tend to last longer because there is less leakage with Supra-gingival dentistry.”

“I acquired great learning at LA Institute of Clinical Dentistry and Ruiz Dental Seminars, especially Supra Gingival Adhesive Dentistry Seminars. You do a great service to patients by following the techniques learned such as saving healthy enamel and keeping gums healthy long term. If time allows I would join you back to learn more on occlusion. It was my great pleasure to be student at LA institute. Dr. Ruiz, I sincerely thank you and your staff for sharing knowledge with other dental professionals.”

“The restorative dentistry that we provide preserves as much of the tooth structure as possible. The research that supports this minimally invasive dentistry is impressive, and the techniques that are taught at The Los Angeles Institute of Clinical Dentistry are precise and replace only the diseased or disfigured part of the tooth. We can keep most of our restorations above the gum line. I am proud to be a graduate of the program, and I am practicing this conservative level of precise dentistry every day.”

“It has been so rewarding to restore my patient’s teeth with minimally invasive supra-gingival dentistry. I sleep better at night realizing I’m no longer removing healthy, intact enamel when it’s not necessary to do so. The procedure is easier, more predictable, and so much kinder to the surrounding soft tissue. The gums are so much healthier! I recently broke a tooth in my own mouth… I insisted my associate perform supra-gingival dentistry to restore my own tooth. Thank you Dr. Ruiz!”

“My wife, Dr. Shabnam Khanideh, and I took the courses with Dr. Ruiz. Our theme is healthy mouth, healthy body, healthy living. Both of us have been placing ceramic onlays in place of crowns on occasions where other dentists would have placed crowns. We feel that this procedure saves tooth structure and when explained to patients, they understand and agree with it. The Supra-gingival approach also promotes predictability and facilitates ease of delivery which helps the doctor and the patient finish the procedure faster.”

“The courses at The LA Clinical Institute of Dentistry have been an invaluable addition to my continuing education. Supra-gingival dentistry and the advances in adhesion have transformed the way I approach my patients’ treatment! Procedures are less invasive, with an emphasis on preserving the patient’s own tooth structure. By keeping tooth preparation above or at the gingival level, tissue integrity and tissue health are easier for patients to maintain. I am grateful for Dr. Ruiz for sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience, and teaching us how to better serve our patients!”

“Learning about supra gingival preparation for minimally invasive dentistry and applying it to my practice has proven to be very beneficial. Using these techniques, I noticed that the conservation of the tooth and structural strength are preserved. The method of reducing the preparation and eliminating the retraction cord results in less insult to the soft tissue and less bleeding during impression—meaning the procedure is easier and more accurate. With less reduction, it is also less likely for the possibility of tooth sensitivity, recurrence of decay, and root canal treatment. To top it off, the finish line is not only easy for the patient to clean, but also easier for the natural cleansing mechanism of the saliva, tongue, and cheek. It’s an all-around helpful boost for maintainable dental health.”
