Dr. Fondriest partners with world famous Ceramist

Cosmetic and prosthodontic dentistry done by equally talented dentists can yield extremely varied outcomes depending on what ceramic laboratory artist creates the final restorations.  The vast majority of our cosmetic cases will be created by a collaboration between Dr. Fondriest and Matt Roberts, CDT.  Dr. Fondriest and Mr. Roberts have lectured and taught together since 2004 at many dental conferences.  They are great friends and continue to push each other and the boundaries of what is possible in cosmetic dentistry.
