Dr. Auster's webinar (which was only switched to this online format because of Covid-19 restrictions, and we greatly appreciated his flexibility in doing so) was truly phenomenal and offered what I consider to be one of the best and most interactive educational course experiences I've ever seen (and I've run hundreds of courses and worked with lots of pros). Delivering a webinar for over six hours straight is quite a challenge and he accomplished one of the most difficult possible things, he not only created a sophisticated educational experience for our audience but he made it look truly effortless and easy!
Erin Markewitz, Managing Director of Xcel Seminars
It truly was amazing! Dr. Auster brought us information that changed us and our staff for years to come! Real life “pearls.” Not only do we consider him a great source of information and a mentor...but now a friend we can go to in a time of dental need! Thanks Peter!
Dr. James Dugan, Chair Chattanooga Area Dental Society
Dr. Peter Auster's presentation was lively and entertaining, but more importantly it was timely and informative. Covering a wide range of topics, this program should be mandatory for young dentists. Being on the cutting edge, it was definitely helpful for those of us with more experience. Thank you Dr. Auster!
Dr. Larry Stone, President of the Montgomery Bucks Dental Society
The New York State Third District Dental Association was fortunate to have Dr. Auster present "Evolution and Revolution: Tackling a New Dental World in 2019." His presentation was engaging and informative. His fast paced and interactive style was well received by the attendees. I felt his product and material recommendations to be genuine and experienced based. His cases and slides were focused on practical cases that most audience members could relate to. I was able to put several of his recommendations to use the following Monday when I returned to my own practice. I feel his presentations would be a strong addition to any meeting.

On May 2, 2019 I had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Peter Auster at the 2019-TDA Meeting held in San Antonio. His lecture, “Evolution and Revolution: Tackling a New Dental World,” was well received by an audience of dentists and other members of the dental team. His information was current; his slides were beautiful and very descriptive. What set him apart from other lecturers I have seen was his personality and delivery. He kept the audience involved and had lots of energy. They say if you get one “pearl” from a lecture, that is good. Well I got lots of “pearls”, information and techniques that I was able to utilize the next work day. I have no qualms about recommending Dr. Auster for any lecture or hands on event.

I just spent the day listening to one of the most uplifting lectures I’ve ever heard in dentistry given by Dr. Peter Auster.
Dr. Auster came to Maine as part of our yearly "package" program for Maine dentists. I went to the course with the attitude of “I'll go listen, but it will probably be mostly review". I was in for a very pleasant surprise. Yes, some of it was review but it turned out being one of the best days I've ever spent in dentistry--very uplifting, inspiring and educational. To Dr Auster--thank you very much for an awesome day. To everyone else--if your study club or dental society is looking for a very inspiring lecture by a very knowledgeable guy, you can't go wrong with Peter. I was extremely impressed.
Dr. Kerry Bryant, Maine Dental Society
As the current president of the Northwest Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for coming out and sharing your valuable knowledge to the members of our group in Washington State. Your lecture on "How to be thrilled in dentistry for the first time"; was inspiringly straightforward, to the point, without fluff, and most importantly the participants raved about how simple it was to implement these ideas at the office to benefit their patients is what really sets you apart. I was especially fond of the myriad of techniques along with a positive philosophy that you shared with us on how to bring back that feeling of actually enjoying dentistry once again.
David K. Chan, DMD, AAACD President: Northwest Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
The information Dr. Auster presented was interesting and informative. He was excellent in walking us step by step through the procedures he presented and then reinforced this information with several actual case presentations. He gave product names and the name of labs that we could use to accomplish these procedures. I gauge how good a speaker is by the number of Doctors left in the room at the end of the day. With Dr. Auster the room was full at the end of his presentation. On top of presenting a really good educational experience, Dr. Auster is just a really nice guy. I highly recommend Peter.
Dr. Ted Jowett, Heartland Dental Society
On behalf of the members of the Philadelphia County Dental Society, please accept my thanks for your well-organized presentation last Friday. Attendees strongly agreed that the ideas presented were up-to-date and relevant to their practices, and that the presentation met the published objectives. Both verbal and oral feedback revealed that the presentation was well received. A number of attendees mentioned that they picked up some “pearls” that will be helpful to them in their practices. Your commentary about the list of sixty-two products was particularly helpful – just a few words about the benefits and drawbacks of a product can often help the doctors find just that solution to a problem they have encountered in their offices. Just one thought about the “Challenges We Face as Dentists.” It was a nice collegial nod to the problems we feel we encounter every day. The consensus was that you provided a superior educational experience.
Judith A. McFadden, D.M.D. Chairman, Philadelphia County Dental Society
