Kois Center - A New Standard Of Education

The time we spend in the clinical programs at the Kois Center has built a foundation of predictable systems we implement daily with our patients. We use this training to achieve extraordinary levels, expanding knowledge and application skills in restorative dentistry.

Why We Study At The Kois Center...

An important part of being a dentist is continuing education. At The Marshall Clinic, Dr. Bruce Marshall & Dr. Matthew Choi are always pushing for new information. Dentistry is an advancing science, and large strides have been and continue to be made.

The Kois Center is a platform for advanced studies with a clinical program for continuous dental advancement. Using a variety of the newest technologies and teaching modules enables both Bruce & Matthew to stay up-to-date on the evolution of dental materials and procedures, in order to simplify and provide the best treatments available to patients.

Bruce is a recent Kois Center Graduate, while Matthew is fortunate to have started his advanced education at the Kois Center early in his career. To date, he has completed 5 of the 9 modules and plans to complete the curriculum in the next several years. Bruce and Matthew are also active members of the Vancouver Kois Study Club (Bruce being one of the “original” members), where a group of like-minded dentists meet monthly to discuss cases and further their knowledge.

Advancing dentistry through science and education

The Kois Center is an advanced clinical program for practicing dentists. The Center features a comprehensive nine-course curriculum with the latest advances in esthetics, implant and restorative dentistry. The curriculum is based upon the mission statement: “Enabling motivated dentists to achieve extraordinary levels, expanding knowledge and application skills in restorative dentistry.”

“… a system that enables us to share information, develop new ideas and create solutions in dentistry that will leave a legacy…”

What is a Kois Center Graduate?

Graduates have completed all nine courses in the curriculum at the Center. Once students become graduates, they have the opportunity to attend an Annual Symposium. At the Symposium, current updates based on new studies are discussed, and our community of professionals have the opportunity to network and get to know each other better.

These individuals are integrity-based and committed to both their patients and education. Dentists who attend the Center seek evidence-based knowledge, willing to question their beliefs in pursuit of excellence. The Kois Center community works to provide the best, most efficient and cost-effective care to their patients and help one another to achieve this goal.

Graduates have made a serious commitment to this rigorous curriculum—sacrificing time away from families, home and their practices—challenging themselves to be the best. To achieve this goal has required questioning of traditional standards and examination of strongly held beliefs under the light of published evidence. It has also required the courage and willingness to change, when necessary, how they practice dentistry.

Above all, dentists attending the Kois Center are committed to excellence and doing their best for their patients.
