The VSS Academy was founded by Dr Fadi Barrak who has been mentoring and training dentist colleagues since 2002. As a dental practitioner seeking to further his career through upgrading his own skills, Fadi realised that fellow practitioners frequently find it hard to get out of the box of the daily practice routine to expand their skill base – just like Fadi himself did. Out of this realisation and the personal satisfaction that he gets from teaching, Fadi decided to create VSS Academy. The courses offered by VSS Academy aim to help fellow practitioners learn new dental skills and treatments whilst protecting and not disrupting their ongoing dental practice time and work. Most courses are offered over the weekend. VSS Academy now boasts a large pool of alumni dentists and many amazing visiting lecturers flank Fadi for delivering academic and practical hands-on trainings as well as personalised coaching and mentoring.
