Buchanan Testimonial

"Dr. Tom McGarry has been an exceptional mentor to me in my implant placement training. The most important message I share with endodontists who have decided to become involved in implantology is that these procedures are, and should be, prosthetically driven.

Dr. McGarry’s expertise as a prosthodontist/ implant surgeon has enabled me to effectively communicate with my restorative collegues and to ideally position implant fixtures right where they need them.

Dr. McGarry is an approachable and talented teacher, his training facility is state-of-the-art, and it has been pure pleasure to be his student. I give him my highest recommendation."
