About our instructors
Board Certified Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Tam started up his private practice located in Santa Maria, CA in 2010. Dr. Tam has placed thousands of zirconia pediatric crowns and thoroughly documented his cases over the past decade.

General Manager, Kinder Krowns
With over a decade of product development experience in the dental industry, Brandon Richards serves as General Manager with Kinder Krowns. Mr. Richards obtained his Bachelor of Business Administration degree at the University of Minnesota, with much of his coursework geared towards new product design and development. Over his tenure, Brandon has launched three product lines and played a large role in the expansion of their ISO 13875-2003 Medical Device quality control process. Mr. Richards regularly attends continuing education courses on CAD/CAM design, advanced dental materials and restorative options to keep abreast on the ever-changing industry.
The atmosphere was very conducive to learning. It was an asset to have Dr. Tam available to share his cases (successes/failures), and for everyone to be able to ask him any clinical questions.
