Restorative Dentistry Courses

Esthetic Dentistry Biomimetic Dentistry

The Nejad Institute provides courses and training in restorative dentistry with the biomimetic approach.  Restorative course subjects include both Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry and Biomimetic Esthetic Dentistry The courses combine education of research-backed science with proven techniques and hands-on application. The biomimetic approach replaces traditional tooth preparation requirements mechanical retention, in-favor of strong durable adhesion that mimics and preserves the structure and function of natural teeth.

Traditional dental procedures rely on preparation designs that accommodate the restorative material or technique. This includes preparation features such as retention and resistance form, as well as tooth reduction to meet the strength requirements of the restorative material instead of prioritizing the preservation of intact tooth structure. As a result, the restored tooth has significant additional preparation and a significantly higher chance of complications such as pain, sensitivity, root canal treatment, recession, and fracture.

In contrast, the Biomimetic approach unites an understanding and appreciation of the biomechanics of natural teeth with principles and techniques which maximize adhesion. These concepts comprise the necessary components to mimic the natural tooth most faithfully. Restorative materials replicate the properties of the dental structures (enamel, dentin, dej) and healthy intact tooth structure is preserved through adhesion without additional preparation requirements. The biomimetically restored tooth mimics the strength, function, and esthetics of natural teeth. Biomimetic restorations include composite fillings, partial coverage restorations (ceramic or resin inlays and onlays), and when necessary, full-coverage ceramic restorations. However, the application technique and material selection makes a significant difference in the performance of these techniques and therefore it is important to have a sound understanding of the science.

Matt Nejad DDS

Dr. Matt Nejad

Dr. Matt Nejad is an expert in biomimetic and esthetic dentistry with a practice in Beverly Hills, CA. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Biomimetic Dentistry, representing the highest level of accreditation in the field. Dr. Nejad also contributes as a Scientific Advisor, where he plays a pivotal role in mentoring and training fellow dentists.

He received his DDS degree from the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry (University of Southern California School of Dentistry) in 2010. During his studies, Dr. Nejad participated in a comprehensive selective program focusing on esthetic and biomimetic dentistry. His exceptional performance in both didactic testing and complex clinical case completion distinguished him at the top of the program. By the time of his graduation, he had completed an unprecedented number of prosthodontic and cosmetic cases, gaining an extraordinary educational experience. He started his first private practice immediately after graduation and has maintained a full-time practice since. 

In addition to his practice, Dr. Nejad is a renowned international lecturer. His training institute, the Nejad Institute, provides advanced training in biomimetic and esthetic dentistry for dentists from all around the world, reaching professionals from over 40 countries to date.

After graduating, Dr. Nejad started his own practice immediately so that he could provide Biomimetic and Esthetic dentistry exactly the way he envisioned. He also continued developing his training and expertise in Biomimetic Dentistry and started providing training courses with Dr. David Alleman. He was the youngest dentist to become a member of the USC faculty, teaching alongside his mentor Dr. Magne since 2010.

Today, Dr. Nejad is considered one of the top opinion leaders in the dental industry. He is committed to the research and scientific development of adhesive and biomimetic dentistry. He consults with top companies, helping develop innovative dental materials and new products. Dr. Nejad continues to lecture nationally and internationally, is a key opinion leader for multiple companies, and is a member of the ADA Standards Committee on Dental Products (SCDP).

His areas of research and interest are adhesion, polymerization stress, residual stress, biomechanics, occlusion, and esthetics.

In order to practice and provide the type of dentistry he was passionate about, Dr. Nejad opened his first private practice in 2010, immediately upon graduation. Despite an extensive lecture and workshop schedule, his professional time is 90% committed to private practice and all his education is utilized daily in this setting. He is currently the managing partner at Helm | Nejad | Stanley in Beverly Hills, CA.
