dr. taher dhoon

Master of Dental Implants

He has seen first-hand the power of dental implants to change lives. That’s why he developed a proven system that delivers the best and quickest implant solutions available. He has become a go-to resource for dental implants with his implant expertise sought after by other dentists looking to implement the same process and achieve the same level of implant success.

Instructor, Trainer, Author, Coach

Dr. Dhoon is a Surgical Instructor with the Colorado Surgical Institute, a Blackbelt Coach with the Mark Costes’ Dental Success Institute, a Surgical/Digital Faculty member with the Dental Success Network, as well as author and coach of The Practice Launchpad. He consults with dentists all over the nation on how to create the business of their dreams, which includes learning to control their overhead, systemize their practices, maximize their profits, while simultaneously growing their business through the addition of speciality procedures.

Private Practice Growth

He has grown his Northern Colorado practice by adding specialty procedures, controlling overhead, and figuring out the nuances of how to market high end procedures. He grew a 1 dentist, 1 million dollar practice with a 68% overhead; to a 2 dentist,4 million dollar practice with a 50% overhead, while only working 2 days/week clinically.

Love and Learning

Dr. Taher Dhoon was born in Utah, where he learned to love the outdoors. He later moved to California, receiving his BA in Physiology and Neuroscience from the University of California, San Diego. He went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. While in dental school, random seating placed him next to another aspiring dentist named Bridget, who would later become his wife.

Training and Missions

Dr. Dhoon has traveled all over the country to learn and perfect the most complex techniques available in modern day dentistry. He has also traveled to the Dominican Republic two separate times to perform implant surgeries and complex bone grafting procedures for the locals in those less fortunate communities.

Home Life

He married his dental school sweetheart (Bridget) and they have three energetic kids named Connor, Claire, Jonathan. He has big plans for his son as he eventually plans to buy an old 60s-70s Chevy to rebuild with his son and then hand the keys over to him for his sixteenth birthday (as long as self-driving cars haven’t made this project obsolete.) His little girl Claire has him wrapped around her little finger. Adding to the family is a golden retriever named West and a little rescue poodle-shih tzu named Jordy. As a family they enjoy exploring all the hidden secrets Colorado has to offer, staying active, gardening, and spending time with friends.

Passion for Helping Others Succeed

Dr. Briskie, not only teaches the technical aspects of surgery and digital dentistry to General Practitioners, but he also has a talent for positively impacting a dentists’ passion for surgery and helping them achieve the confidence needed to incorporate dental surgeries in their own practices. As Dr. Briskie expands his clinical knowledge, his desire to teach and inspire others has become a priority. He is now traveling and teaching hands on full arch procedures and digital workflows to groups of docs all over the nation.
