Smile Systems Institute
The Smile Systems Institute was founded to provide ongoing training for general dentists and other dental professionals interested in providing full mouth restorations. All of our courses include live classroom instruction, observation, as well as hands-on learning. Our goal is to have our doctors leave with a new skill, ready to confidently implement into practice.
The new training facility is located in Midvale, Utah, incorporated into our Smile Clinic building. The facility features a large training room, surgical observation room, as well as over a dozen operatories to be used for live hands-on training with patients.
The facility is also conveniently located adjacent to a hotel and a public transportation stop with service to and from the Salt Lake City International Airport.
Smile Systems Institute maintains a large library of support documentation videos based on our own experience and practicing doctor recommendations. We also have a collection additional resources available including video trainings and more.
All active licensed providers have lifetime access to the support library, group support from our talented team of experienced providers, as well as ongoing direct support from our institute instructors.
