Shortly after graduating, he received advanced training at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania
. This provided him an advanced license in I.V sedation, which makes it possible for Dr. Hendriks to perform surgery with patients being comfortable and sedated. He has provided thousands of safe sedations
, leaving patients happy with little to no recollection of the procedure. He also maintains a certification in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
He continued his advanced dental education by completing a private 13 month residency with a private practice dental implant teaching institute in Heber City UT. This required 80 plus hours a week, with a very narrow focus on dental implants. As part of the residency, he also helped train other Doctors in placing implants in general practice. This experience helped lay the foundation for his passion for implant dentistry and teaching.
Because of this deep belief in continuing education, Dr. Hendriks travels regularly to stay up to date with latest technologies, practices, and techniques in implant dentistry. In recent years, he has traveled to Portugal, Italy, Brazil, Greece, Israel, Colorado, Oregon, Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas, Illinois, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Florida, Kentucky and Louisiana. All of this education has been focused on implant dentistry and full mouth reconstruction, with a special focus on the All on 4® method.
He is a member and attends yearly conferences for the International Congress of Implantology (ICOI), American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) and American Society of Dental Anesthesiologists (ASDA).
Dr. Hendriks is unique in that not only does he provide the surgery, he also designs, engineers and fabricates the implants. This is due to the fact that he owns a fully operating fixed and removable in-house lab with state of the art equipment. This ensures his ability to control the quality of the product from start to finish, including the lab and materials which is critical to providing his patients with the best product.
Dr. Hendriks has placed thousands of dental implants and has a passion for doing things the right way with the right equipment. He has a particular interest and passion for the treatment called by many “All on 4®”, which is a hybrid fixed denture that replaces all of a patients teeth. His passion drives this interest because it changes a patients smile all in one day.
Many doctors look to Dr. Hendriks as an expert in implant dentistry and will travel to Utah to be mentored by him in these life changing techniques. He has been mentoring and teaching classes since 2014. This has lead to the creation of an implant training center called Dream Dental Institute. He loves to share his knowledge and experience with anybody that has the same passion for creating life changing dream smiles.
