Jill M. Morris D.M.D. and Burr Bakke D.D.S.: world class dentistry.

Sarasota is renowned for artistic endeavors, and Drs. Jill Morris and Burr Bakke have extended that fame to aesthetic dentistry.


The pair work together as World Class Dentistry, an apt name for a dental practice that attracts patients from around the globe. Patients benefit from the doctors' experience in cosmetic and neuromuscular aesthetic dentistry, which enhances the appearance as well as the function of the teeth and jaw.

Drs. Morris and Bakke share their skills as faculty members and regional directors at the distinguished Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. "Approximately 5 percent of all dentists are trained in this type of neuromuscular aesthetic dentistry," Dr. Morris says. "We teach dentists from Australia, Japan, Canada--all over the world--who bring their patients to us at the institute to learn complex cosmetic and reconstruction skills."

Their state-of-the-art techniques result in "smile makeovers" or facial rejuvenation. As people age, the teeth wear and the jaw can change position. With the help of sophisticated computer technology, the dentists restore teeth to their younger appearance.

The technique reduces sagging jowls and wrinkles and can ease muscle pain caused by worn teeth or malpositioned jaws. Often, the result is a non-surgical "facelift." "It's amazing the difference it can make, not just in appearance, but in the quality of life of the patient," says Dr. Morris. "They have more confidence and smile again." Dr. Morris is only one of approximately 300 dentists worldwide who have received high honors with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Since Dr. Bakke has advanced training in implants and special surgical procedures, the dental practice can accommodate full mouth dentistry in one location, often in just one morning. "We can complete treatment in fewer visits, which makes it very comfortable for our patients," says Dr. Bakke.

An informative seminar is set for February 24. Call for reservations.
