Meet the instructors

Foroud Hakim, DDS

Dr. Foroud Hakim is a nationally and internationally recognized speaker with an unwavering passion for all aspects of contemporary restorative dentistry. He is particularly motivated to help colleagues in improving treatment outcomes, patient experiences, as well as practice efficiency. He thrives on audience participation and interactive learning models. “I learn just as much from my audiences as they might from me; if it’s not a two-way street, something is wrong!”

Dr. Hakim has balanced private practice and dental education for 31 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. He splits his time between “real world/wet fingered” private practice, and teaching dental students at University of the Pacific, as well as colleagues across the country. He earned his DDS in 1991 and went on to earn his MBA in 2000. His areas of focus range from predictable and lasting adhesion, minimally invasive single tooth dentistry, all the way through to full mouth esthetic rehabilitation and smile design.

Dr. Hakim is the founder of San Ramon Dental Excellence, Director of Occlusion at the University of the Pacific and an active board member and speaker for Catapult Education’s Speakers Bureau.

Marc Geissberger, DDS

Dr. Marc Geissberger taught at University of the Pacific for 30 years and ran Pacific’s prestigious complex and esthetic rehabilitation program. He is also a researcher and a published author in the areas of dental materials, contemporary fixed prosthodontics, and esthetic dentistry. He serves as a consultant for many dental materials companies and helps guide product development.
During his 30 years in academia, he has maintained a private practice geared toward restorative dentistry with his brother and fellow Pacific alum Dr. Jeffrey Geissberger. He believes his continual involvement in providing patient care as well as a role in academia has given him a unique balance that allows him to blend the best of both worlds.

Dr. Geissberger is a member of the Catapult Education Speakers Bureau, has won several teaching awards, and has presented over 450 lectures and hands-on workshops to colleagues in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China, Peru, Denmark, and Taiwan. He has co-authored and published numerous scientific papers and a textbook entitled Esthetic Dentistry in Clinical Practice for Wiley-Blackwell which is currently available in 4 languages (English, Spanish, Polish, and Turkish).

Dr. Geissberger earned a master’s degree in educational psychology in 1994 and has been a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) with the National Academy of Sports Medicine since 2008. He completed his Fitness Nutrition Specialty (FNS) training in 2011.
