MORE ABOUT DR. RJ
DR. RJ DAVIS

Dr. RJ Davis completed undergraduate studies at Rutgers University where he majored in biological science. He then went on to earn his DMD from UMDNJ and continued to complete a hospital based residency at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, NJ. Here, he completed extensive rotations in surgery, anesthesia, and general medicine. Here is also where he placed his first implants and discovered his love for the art of Implantology.

This led him to complete 3 additional years at NYU Surgical and Prosthetic Implant Fellowship where he gained experience in advanced Bone Grafting, Sinus Augmentations, and Complex Implant Bone Restorations.

During this time he also got his certification in Intravenous Anesthesia from St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey. He then proceeded to complete the Calderón Sinus Augmentation Course to gain extra experience in these procedures.

Dr. Davis immediately felt a connection with the mission of the Calderón Institute to teach high quality Implant Surgery to willing doctors.
