About Nejad Institute

Welcome to The Nejad Institute, where we are dedicated to helping dentists achieve the best possible biomimetic and esthetic dentistry. Our mission is to provide dentists with the education and training to deliver exceptional results for their patients using evidence-based techniques.

What sets us apart from other dental education providers is our extensive practical experience. While many other programs are based solely on academics and have limited experience in private practice, our curriculum incorporates the real-world aspects of dentistry in a practice setting necessary to operate a successful practice. Our founder, Dr. Matt Nejad, brings over 15 years of full-time experience in biomimetic and esthetic dentistry, providing our students with an unparalleled level of expertise. Additionally, the Nejad Institute goes beyond the basic training provided by other programs, offering advanced treatment options such as veneers and full-mouth rehabilitations, as well as training in cutting-edge techniques like 3D printing, digital design, and CAD/CAM. As an industry leader, Dr. Nejad is dedicated to staying at the forefront of the latest advancements in technology and is constantly improving our training programs to provide our students with the most up-to-date knowledge and techniques to improve the quality and efficiency of their practice. We also offer personalized in-office mentoring to help dentists learn the nuances of incorporating the education into practice effectively.

Our courses are taught exclusively by Dr. Matt Nejad, an internationally recognized esthetic and biomimetic dentist. Dr. Nejad practices what he teaches, using a comprehensive approach to biomimetic dentistry that incorporates science and engineering principles and techniques to mimic the properties and biomechanics of natural teeth, while conserving healthy tooth structure and avoiding complications from traditional restorative techniques. His long-term success rates are unparalleled.

At The Nejad Institute, we go beyond simple lecture-based learning to provide practical training in real-world biomimetic and esthetic dentistry procedures and protocols. Our courses are designed to equip dentists with the skills and techniques needed to deliver exceptional results for their patients.
