Dr. Anna Salat

Born in Barcelona, Dr Anna Salat graduated with a degree in dentistry from the International University of Catalonia (UIC) in Barcelona. She continued her postgraduate studies in implantology and esthetic dentistry, earning a master’s degree from UIC. Dr Salat is particularly interested in conservative dentistry and esthetic restorations and lectures internationally on these topics. She has contributed articles to a number of international journals. Author of the book Layers (Quintessence 2012).


The authors of this dynamic atlas posit that it is the mastery of layering technique and not the material itself that is most important in recreating natural-looking resorations. Despite the many advances of contemporary dental research in biomaterials and tissue regeneration, no dental material can perfectly correspond to natural tooth.
