At his lab he provides implant-prosthetic rehabilitations, implant planning services, crown and bridge design services, digital smile design as well as all products offered by a crown and bridge lab. Jeffry saw the challenges that many of his colleagues had in the area of digital dentistry so he started holding trainings. lectures and courses on 3shape, exocad, blueskybio, meshmixer and various other top dental software.
