Dentistry Today has compiled this list of leaders in continuing education for nineteen years. Every year for 19 years Dr. Strupp has been selected to this elite group of teachers in Dentistry.

Dr. Bill Strupp has the personal experience and knowledge to help you navigate the complexities of cosmetic dentistry successfully. Over the past 35 years, he has focused his entire practice on complex cosmetic cases.
Unlike the seminars of the professional speakers who photograph and PhotoShop a simple solitary case for the purpose of presenting a “one-slide-fits-all” seminar that fails to relate to the real world of dentistry, Dr. Strupp’s presentation encompasses the multi-dimensional aspects of hundreds of complex cases he has treated over the years.
Bill Strupp is a practicing clinician who has placed over 55,000 units of crowns and bridges, and he has learned what works and what does not. The techniques he uses every day and teaches in his seminars can change cases that would otherwise inevitably fail into cases that will endure the test of time.
In addition to his vast experience in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, Bill Strupp has associated with numerous prestigious professional organizations that are listed below. He was a major contributing force in the founding of two such organizations, in his role as the principal founding speaker at the inaugural meeting for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in 1984, and the Florida Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in 1997.
As a dentist, he has always been ahead of his time, as evidenced by his 1981 presentation at the ADA meeting in Kansas City, MO entitled “How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Build Your Practice.” Bill Strupp has also enjoyed the role of team dentist for the New York Yankees since 1995 and has been presented with five World Series rings.
Bill Strupp’s teaching style is not for the weak at heart. He is known for his straightforward, “take-no-prisoners” approach. Thorough information is rapidly but clearly presented and accompanied with detailed written notes, so all you have to do is listen. As Dr. Fred Troxel from Key West Florida has said, “A Bill Strupp presentation is so filled with information that it is like trying to get a drink of water from a fire hose.”
His simple approach to complex cosmetic cases will blow the roof off your bottom line.
