Dr. Farrugia practices digital restorative dentistry, TMD, and dental sleep medicine in Destin, Florida utilizing advanced technologies such as digital imaging, CAD/CAM, CT, and 3D printing to provide comprehensive, high quality care. He speaks to and trains dentists nationwide who want to advance their practices with digital (CBCT) imaging, digital restorative dentistry (including all CAD/CAM procedures and materials, CAD/CAM/CT integration, and 3D printing), and to successfully implement dental sleep medicine into their practice. As a nationally recognized expert in medical billing by dental practices, Dr. Farrugia teaches dental practices to access medical benefits for their services.  All dentists should be properly compensated for what they know and do.
