Dr. Dennis Fair, B.Sc., D.D.S.
As Chief Clinical Officer of CDS, Dr. Dennis Fair leads overall responsibility for clinical standards and care, and is instrumental in designing clinical process and standards.
Dr. Fair graduated from the University of Alberta with a B.Sc. and D.D.S. degree in 1982. After gaining some measure of experience in most aspects of general dentistry, he began a journey to focus his practice to more specialized areas of the profession. Since 1986, sedation dentistry has been a growing part of his practice, facilitating procedures involving more complex restorative and reconstructive therapies, including the area of implant dentistry. In 1988, Dr. Fair completed his first surgical and restorative course in implants with Core-Vent in Dallas, Texas. Since then, he has attended numerous dental courses and seminars focusing on many fields related to implant dentistry.
In 1995, he attended the Branemark Clinic in Gothenburg, Sweden, where he had the privilege to train under some of the original masters of the science and research that had emerged from Europe some years previous. Dr. Fair has completed all the course requirements and is a graduate of the Kois Center in Seattle, Washington; he is presently working on gaining Mentorship qualification there. Dr. Fair continues to develop his knowledge and skills through many hours of continuing education in dentistry, and has become a high-end provider of implant and more complex restorative dentistry.
