Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Each month, dentists from the five boroughs, Westchester, and Long Island congregate in Queens for the popular Fialkoff Study Club. With a new presenter each month lecturing on such topics as  “Evidence Based Shade Taking  –  Achieving the Superior Cosmetic Restoration,”  “Periodontal Plastic Surgery,” “Sleep Apnea and Snoring – Diagnosis, Prevention and Treatment Methods,” “CPR Training,” and others, dentists stay in-the-know on the latest advances in their field and overlapping fields.

Attending practitioners receive continuing education credits at each study club and are able to utilize data they receive at the seminars to enhance their office, staff, patient experience, office module, etc.

Dr. Bernard Fialkoff began the Bayside Study Club in the “Papazzio” Restaurant nearly 20 years ago, and has expanded it to the Bayside restaurant “Laterna” on Bell Boulevard. The growing number of dentists, dental assistants, and other office staff attending the monthly seminar necessitated this move so many more practitioners could benefit from the study club.

Attending the monthly seminars is an excellent venue for colleagues in the dental field to meet, converse on the latest news and advancements, discuss possibilities of working together, and to keep the field united as one cohesive group. As a specialist in Periodontics, Implantology, and Laser Surgery, Dr. Fialkoff is happy to meet neighboring dentists who are searching for a reliable, consistent, professional, and friendly Implant/Periodontal/Laser Surgeon who can serve their patients in these specialty areas. The Fialkoff Study Club is always open for all practitioners to attend.
