Dr. Janet Roberts of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada Is Announced as a Mentor and Senior Instructor for the California Center for Advanced Dental Studies

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - September 10, 2008) - After careful consideration, the California Center for Advanced Dental Studies' (CCADS) board is honored to announce that Dr. Janet Roberts, DMD, has been appointed as a Mentor and Senior Instructor at the California Center for Advanced Dental Studies. "I am excited to have Dr. Roberts as our first Canadian mentor. She has one of the premier dental practices in the Vancouver area and she possesses the qualities we look for. She is a world class clinician and an outstanding teacher," said Dr. Thomas Dudney, Program Director of CCADS.

Dr. Roberts' selection is the result of a rigorous review process that includes an in-depth look at the doctor's collegiate and post-graduate education, dental practice and overall integrity. In order to be selected, they must have completed a minimum of 120 hours and three levels of advanced clinical training from accredited post-graduate programs. "What distinguishes our Mentors," comments Garrett Caldwell, President of CCADS, "is their comprehension and use of advanced clinical protocols for veneers including all types of indirect all-ceramic and ceromer composite restorations and their overall commitment to excellence in their practices."

Mentor-Instructors for CCADS have many responsibilities, including conducting their own local study groups in their offices and instructing nationally and internationally at seminars and live patient hands-on programs. However, more important than their clinical duties is their responsibility to the public and to any doctor who seeks assistance or mentoring in the field of cosmetic dentistry.

A graduate of the University of BC, Dr. Janet Roberts has been in private dental practice for over 25 years. She has studied extensively at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies in the areas of cosmetic dentistry, advanced restorative dentistry and neuro-muscular occlusion. Dr. Roberts is also a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the Canadian Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. She mentors dentists in the field of aesthetic dentistry. Her practice in Coal Harbour focuses on aesthetic and comprehensive restorative dentistry for adults.

The California Center for Advanced Dental Studies (CCADS) is an international teaching organization that is revolutionizing post-graduate dental education for dentists. CCADS is a not-for-profit organization that offers scholarships to qualified dentists to attend aesthetic dentistry programs. CCADS has mentors and instructors currently conducting study clubs and clinical programs focused on cosmetic dentistry across the United States, Canada and the UK.

CCADS is funded through the support the following benefactors: Frontier Dental Laboratories, Takacs Practice Management, Ivoclar North America, Biolase, Jensen, Patterson Dental, and Zenith/DMG.
