Not All Dentists Are the Same
You may be surprised to learn that not all dentists have the same level of training and education. To become a board certified dentist in Georgia, there is a minimum graduate level education requirement that addresses the basics of oral health and dentistry. Many dentists take their education farther with post-graduate training and specialty courses. Only a few dentists pursue advanced training to maximize their skill and experience. Dr. Lassiter is one of these dentists.
“I’ve seen first hand the negative health impacts that develop as a result of poor dental care. When people lose the ability to chew food and absorb nutrients, their health can decline rapidly. It is deeply satisfying to help patients restore not just their smile, but their overall health and sense of confidence through comprehensive dentistry.” – Kingsland Dentist, Dr. James Lassiter

About Our Credentials
Student of Dr. Jack Turbyfill
Dr. Jack Turbyfill is widely considered to be one of the best dentists in the profession for preparing and implementing complete dentures. Dr. Lassiter trained with Dr. Turbyfill and mastered the “Turbyfill Technique,” offering our patients a more comprehensive treatment option for dentures and partials. The Turbyfill Technique involves the placement of a provisional “training” denture to establish an ideal fit and restoration. The provisional denture ultimately serves as a model for the final denture which is designed to look, feel and function like natural teeth.
Kois Center Graduate
The Kois Center curriculum is rooted in John C. Kois’ mission statement: “Enabling motivated dentists to achieve extraordinary levels, expanding both knowledge and application skills in restorative dentistry.” As a Kois-trained dentist, Dr. Lassiter completed a comprehensive nine-course curriculum involving the latest advances in aesthetic, occlusion, implant and restorative dentistry.
Misch Implant Institute
Dr. Lassiter is currently studying at The Misch International Implant Institute™, one of the leading educational facilities for implant dentistry. Intense courses and hands-on seminars enable Dr. Lassiter to master the latest advances in dental implant treatments. We are proud to offer patients in southern Georgia the most comprehensive and advanced treatment options available.
