Dr. Li has also had significant experience in running dental Study Clubs, and has given lectures to numerous offices and at local dental societies. He is currently a faculty member of Ace Dental Institute and BITES Institute, giving lectures and leading hands-on workshops across Canada.
His clinical skills cover all facets of periodontology and implantology, and his practice is focused on esthetic periodontal surgery, implant dentistry and advanced hard and soft tissue regeneration. Additionally, he is certified in the administration of intravenous conscious sedation, and offers this service for his patients at Peterborough Periodontics. Dr. Li also has an interest and proficiency in the Periodontal-Prosthetic interrelationship, and helped establish the Resident Interdisciplinary Implant Study Club at the University of Michigan.
When not in the office, Dr. Li’s interests include basketball, golf, traveling and the outdoors. He is an avid fan of the Toronto sports teams, and loves to cheer on the Leafs, Raptors, Jays and FC.
