Metro West Seminars

What are Metro West Seminars?

In 2010, two partners founded Metro West Seminars to provide quality advanced continuing education to improve treatment, communication, and clinical experience for dentists from Nebraska and throughout the globe. For years, Dr. Kim and Dr. Miyamoto have assisted dentists in learning implant treatment planning, procedures, orthodontics care, and comprehensive restorative dentistry.

Dr. Taera Kim and Dr. Takanari Miyamoto, founders of the Metro West Seminars, are still actively involved in study club and clinical research as well as continuing education directors, participants, and educators. To find out more information about their academic and professional background and current interests, please visit the Our Team page.

Metro West Dental Seminars are now offering educational opportunities for dentists to advance the quality of multidisciplinary comprehensive dental therapy, patient care, and doctor satisfaction.

These courses, incorporating surgical and prosthetic hands-on experiences, are designed for the discerning professional interested in dedicating several days to expand his/her clinical acumen and skills.
