“Seeing and doing more implanting and grafting cases.”

“I had been placing implants for about 4 years before I took the Phelps Institute implant course. At The Phelps Institute, I strengthened my understanding of basic techniques for placing implants as well as more advanced placement procedures: bone grafting, membrane placement, immediate implants. The greatest benefit was simplifying what seemed more complex.

On day 3 I performed a LIVE surgery and placed 4 implants in the mandible, free-hand, which took me 75 minutes. Then Dr. Phelps personally assisted me through converting the patient’s existing temporary denture into a fixed hybrid denture. What an amazing day.

It has only been 3 weeks since I took the course and I have been doing either a bone graft and/or placing an implant (nearly entirely immediates) two times a week! Some of those cases are entirely from my new clinical growth at The Phelps institute. If this pattern holds up, I am only half-way to my goal of ‘an implant a day!’

For comparative purposes, in the 48 weeks prior to the course, I had only placed 2 implants and one bone graft. I don’t know where the magic is, but I believe the brain only sees what it wants to see; and I am seeing and doing more implant and grafting cases. Thank you, Dr. Phelps!”

A Godsend to our national group of clinics

“Dr. Phelps has been a godsend to our national group of clinics. He is an excellent presenter and makes the learning fun and shares enough stories to help you be able to remember the Principles. The material he teaches is pure gold. Some of what we have learned are things we were already doing but did not know why they were working. The majority of what we learned was able to be implemented in our clinics around the country over the next few weeks after our seminar. The results of these things we implemented resulted in a gross increase of 50% of collections the very next month. I cannot recommend this training highly enough. I think every business owner who sell’s something in their business should have their entire company enrolled in this seminar because Dr. Phelps is amazing.”

—Travis Autor, CEO Stem Cell Centers

Dr. Christopher Phelps is an entrepreneur, general dentist, and an Amazon best-selling author who practices in Charlotte, NC.

In his first 7 years of practice he grew the revenue of his practices by a factor of 10X, going from 1 practice location to 4 locations. After selling two of those offices for profit, Dr. Phelps focused on maximizing the capacity of his remaining 2 practices and had 2 consecutive years of $1,000,000 revenue growth at each of the two practices, effectively collecting with 2 offices what he had collected when he owned 4 offices. A major part of this success was the Call Tracker ROI program he developed which helped increase his new patient numbers from 60/month to averaging over 300/month; all the while decreasing his marketing expenses by 74%.

Dr. Phelps is a key opinion leader to several large dental companies was awarded the 2016 Doctor’s Choice National Dentist Award (from 6,000 nominated). In addition, Dr. Phelps is an expert in the Science of Influence and Ethical Persuasion. For the last 8 years he’s worked with companies like Nobel Biocare, Sybron Dental, Implant Direct, BioHorizons and OsteoReady to train General Dentists from all over the country in the surgical art of implant placement. He is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the International Congress of Oral Implantology and the Academy of Osseointegration.

Chris was awarded the Doctor’s Choice National Dental Award in 2016 (from 6,000 nominated dentists). Additionally, he was chosen for the 2016 Doctor’s Choice Top 100, due to a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.

Dr. Andrew Turchin is one of the country’s leading Cosmetic and Reconstructive Dentists.

Dr. Turchin’s desire to give his patients the very best has kept his schedule busy with Continuing Education Seminars all over the country, and Study Clubs such as the Occlusal Concepts Study Club of Manhattan. His treatment philosophy of integrating health and beauty has interested many different groups, making him a busy lecturer as well. As the science and art of dentistry moves forward, Dr. Turchin is dedicated to being at the forefront. But he knows that personalized care is the most important quality in treating people.

Dr. Andrew Turchin graduated from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1999. His quest for more knowledge landed him at Columbia University where he was a Fellow in their Advanced Education in General Dentistry program which included a full year Dental Implant Course given by Branemark, the company credited with inventing and pioneering the modern dental implant.

After finishing at Columbia, Dr. Turchin began private practice as an associate at a prominent Fifth Avenue practice renowned for their reconstructive work. In 2002, Dr. Turchin opened his own practice on Fifth Avenue practicing both preventive and reconstructive dentistry.

Six months after September 11th, Dr. Turchin was asked to join World Trade Center Dental to help rebuild their great practice, which he was honored to do part time while maintaining his own office. In 2008, Dr Turchin expanded his practice to a much larger space on Madison Avenue, where he designed the practice of his dreams which comforted his patients in a non-clinical environment while under the surface being equipped with the best dental technology had to offer.

In 2012, after 13 years of practicing at the top of Manhattan Dentistry, he sold his practice to follow his dream of living and practicing in Aspen, Colorado. It was hard for him to say goodbye to such an amazing practice with so many wonderful patients and a great team. He now enjoys bringing the very best preventive, general, and reconstructive dentistry that he is known for in New York to Aspen, while appreciating the wonders of nature.

He has taken the helm at the practice that was started by the great late Bill Comcowich and then carried on by Lloyd Herman. He is honored to continue the legacy of quality dentistry that the practice has always been known for and to further Aspen’s reputation as a leader in quality dentistry. Besides improving people’s smiles, Dr. Turchin has a few other passions. He is an avid lover of the outdoors, and especially enjoys skiing. His appreciation of great food and wine has prompted him to become an amateur cook and has even appeared on the cooking show Taste of New York.
