In 2016, Dr. Bonk accepted a position teaching restorative design with Spear Education in Scottsdale, Arizona. Spear Education is an internationally renown center for post-graduate dental studies.
His Restorative Design Workshops focus on preparing the tooth, as well as designing the restoration in such a way that the dentist can not only predict the results but will have the esthetic skill achieve the desired look.
This requires both technical and esthetic training. The first comes naturally to most dentists, who enjoy fixing things. The second is more challenging. Cosmetic dentists have to be mechanics and artists simultaneously. Dr. Bonk’s job is to help them get there.
Will This Affect My Dental Care?
This position at Spear is the culmination of a lifetime of learning and a passion for teaching. However, neither of those supersede his love of being a dentist. The Restorative Design Workshops are three days in length and held nine times a year.
Even with his travel to Scottsdale, there will be minimal disruption to his patient scheduling. Dr. Bonk will continue providing the same great care you’ve always received.
