Because achieving perfection is an ongoing process, we created the Amara Institute, a state-of-the-art theater and learning facility at Valley Dental Arts. The Amara Institute has become a national center for advancing the art and science of aesthetic and restorative dentistry, offering our staff, as well as other leading professionals, the opportunity to learn from world class practitioners. The facility, which allows the viewing of live procedures from remote clinical suites in a wide screen theater environment, has been instrumental in teaching new techniques and procedures.

In Greek, the word “Amara” means eternal beauty. The Amara Institute is the embodiment of this very quality with its relentless pursuit of aesthetic excellence. Through education, we are shaping a beautiful future for our industry for generations to come.
