Klaus Mueterthies and I became friends and in 2009 we joined forces to expand the Art Oral philosophy, which is about real art in dentistry.
The late Dr Robert L Lee, founder of Bioesthetic Dentistry, was another major influence on my aesthetic approach.
He believed in the importance of studying the beauty of living things in their natural forms and functions.
Aesthetics in nature and all art forms, including dentistry, are all about creating an impression of simplicity.
At Art Oral, I strive for simplicity in shape, texture and colour because the simpler the veneers the more beautiful and natural it looks.
