He feels that it’s important to stay abreast of the latest advances in dentistry, and regularly attends continuing education courses to ensure that he and his team are offering the best to their patients. Locally, Dr. Wagner is involved in a Spear study club, which consists of dentists and dental specialists working together, learning to better solve and treat complex clinical situations that patients might face.  His clinical areas of interest include cosmetic dentistry, dental implant restorations, and helping patients achieve a higher level of confidence thru a beautiful, healthy smile.
