A native of Alberta, Canada, and a 1994 graduate of the University of Washington School of Dentistry, Dr. Timothy Hess runs a general dentistry private practice in Auburn, WA, and is a partner at reStōr Dental Implant Center and reStōr Dental Laboratory. He also holds positions as Affiliate Instructor in Restorative Dentistry and Affiliate Faculty in Oral Medicine at the UW School of Dentistry, and he is Director of the school’s R.V. Tucker Institute. He spends a great deal of time on the lecture circuit, discussing restorative-technique-related implant failure, zirconia restorations, and facial esthetics. Dr. Hess also is a frequent contributor to a variety of dental journals, including Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants, and Operative Dentistry.
Dr. Hess outfits his practices with the highest-quality, premium products as he strives to provide his patients with superior dental care. He relies on Komet USA’s expansive range of exceptional, high-quality instruments to deliver excellent results consistently and efficiently, and he gives high marks to that famous Komet customer service, noting the attention he receives from his company representative.
Favorite Komet USA Product
For their exceptional cutting efficiency, durability, and long service life, Deep Purple™ diamonds are Dr. Hess’ favorite Komet USA product. The crown-prep diamonds offer measurably greater substance removal in comparison to standard diamonds, and they work quickly and effectively.
The Future of Dentistry
“The future of dentistry is likely to see increased penetration of dental-service organizations as the standard of care within dentistry continues to change. This will, however, create an opportunity for the general dentist to distinguish him- or herself from the large group practice down the road.”
