Description of Speaker:

This is where he established the Wehrle Implant Immersion Course(WIIC) which teaches immersive, live implant training to doctors from the US and around the world. There are now over 200 WIIC grads and growing at the pace of 75-100 doctors/year.

Dr. Wehrle's private practice, HEB Dental Excellence, is in Hurst, Tx. This is in the Mid-Cities area between Dallas and Ft. Worth which is also where he helped to establish, and is the chairman of, the Northeast Tarrant County Dental Clinic which serves underprivileged children.
