Dr. Jon Marashi, of San Clemente, California, Is Announced as a Mentor and Senior Instructor for the California Center for Advanced Dental Studies

SAN CLEMENTE, CA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - After careful consideration, the California Center for Advanced Dental Studies' (CCADS) board is excited to announce that Dr. Jon Marashi, DDS, has been appointed as a Mentor-Senior Instructor. "We are thrilled to have Dr. Marashi as a Mentor-Senior Instructor. He absolutely possesses all the qualities we look for. He's a premier clinician and an outstanding teacher," said Dr. Thomas Dudney, Program Director of CCADS.

Dr. Marashi's selection is the result of a rigorous selection process that includes an in depth look at the doctor's collegiate and post-graduate education, clinical skills and overall integrity. In order to be selected, the dentist 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.

Dr. Jon Marashi graduated with Honors in Aesthetic Dentistry from New York University. He has served as a clinical instructor for the Aesthetic Advantage, hands-on continuing education program, presented at the Rosenthal Institute at New York University and Palm Beach. His articles on aesthetic technique and restoration have been published in Inside Dentistry, Contemporary Esthetics and Restorative Practice, Dentistry Today, The AACD Monologue, and Practical Aesthetics. He maintains private practice in San Clemente, CA.

The California Center for Advanced Dental Studies (CCADS) is a non-profit organization focused on changing the way postgraduate dental education is offered to dentists. CCADS is led by Program Director, Dr. Thomas Dudney, and has mentors and instructors currently conducting study clubs and clinical programs related to cosmetic dentistry across North America and the UK.
