After 40 years of running a world class successful practice, I felt compelled to share the secrets of my success with friends, patients and colleagues. So, I wrote a book and developed a teaching program. Treating People Not Patients is an Amazon best seller!


One of the most important aspects of my life, is to educate others so they can become better versions of themselves. Sonick Seminars is the clinical venue designed to teach dentists the necessary clinical skills to become GREAT.
