Chao Pinhole Academy Attracts Doctors From Poland, Indonesia and Canada for Latest Seminar


Doctors from across the U.S. and around the world are attending the latest Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique® training class May 13-14, conducted by dentist and inventor Dr. John Chao in the Los Angeles suburb of Alhambra, CA. “For this seminar we are pleased to welcome Dr. Veronica Neamtu of Brossard, QC, Canada, Dr. Monika Pilarska from Gdynia, Poland and Dr. Ruby Karyadi of Jakarta, Indonesia,” says Dr. Chao. “Dr. Pilarska is the first doctor from Poland to attend the Chao Pinhole Academy, and Dr. Karyadi is the second doctor to travel from Indonesia to be trained in the Pinhole Technique.”

“The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique® (PST) is a breakthrough alternative to conventional gum grafting which requires no cutting, no sutures and little to no downtime. This minimally invasive procedure takes just a few minutes per tooth and multiple teeth may be treated at the same time, all through ‘pinholes’ made in the gums which heal quickly, in many cases overnight,” says Dr. Chao, who holds patents on the method and on the special dental instruments used in the procedure.

“The Pinhole® Technique is changing the way doctors are treating gum recession,” says Dr. Chao. “Also known as Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, the procedure is receiving positive reviews from general dentists and periodontists from around the world.” To date, Dr. Chao has personally trained over 1,500 doctors in the technique.

Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ has been featured on hundreds of TV stations across the U.S., Canada and Europe with millions of viewers learning that they no longer need to fear having conventional gum grafting surgery to correct receding gums.

For more information on the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique® training classes or to locate a local doctor who has been trained by Dr. Chao visit or call 888-603-2953.

ABC 31 Ivanhoe Discusses the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique

Unfortunately, 1 in 10 patients with braces develop gum recession. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique helped Chelsea Cassady get her beautiful smile back after developing gum recession from her braces. Plaque builds up around the braces making them ard to clean. Normally in this case Chelsea would have had to undergo painful traditional gum surgery. With the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique Convenient “We make a very tiny pinhole above the gum line where the tissue is soft. And then, with specialized instruments, we detach the gum tissue away from the bone. And once it’s loose, we can drape it down over the receded area,” Dr. Chao explained. Convenient and affordable, this gum rejuvenation procedure is ideal for cases like these.
