Sam is an active member and avid supporter of many dental study groups. In addition Sam served as a lecturer and instructor at USC, and frequently teaches at the UCLA School of Dentistry Continuing Education Department. He also offers numerous restorative courses and hands-on presentations across both Europe and the United States. He is an expert in the technically demanding “denture conversion” treatment for edentulous patients with implant-supported prosthesis, and collaborates chair-side with dental specialists.
Sam completed his Master Dental Technician degree in Brussels, Belgium in 1994 with distinction and special recognition from his school. During his studies, he gained extensive training and hands-on experience in fabricating fixed and removable prosthetic restorations at one of Brussels’ most prestigious laboratories.
In 2012, Sam opened a teaching facility to offer specialized courses for doctors, technicians and specialists. In the Summer of 2016, Beverly Hills Dental Laboratory relocated to an expansive office, and tripled the size of its educational center. Before that, Sam was based in Waterloo, Belgium, where he ran his own aesthetics-focused laboratory from 1996 to 2003 and specialized in anterior and implant restorations.
