Discover the shortcomings associated with traditional techniques for caries detection. Become aware the mechanism of action for bonding to dentin. Develop a generalized understanding for how to properly bond a restoration

About Dr. David Alleman:

His study of advanced adhesive dentistry began with Dr. Ray Bertolotti. His studies continued to progress under the tutelage of the renowned Dr. John Kois. These two mentors and his passionate dedication evolved into his 10 year/10,000 hour review of the dental literature. This dedication enabled him to formulate the concepts on which advanced adhesive (Biomimetic) dentistry is based.

Other mentors and pioneers he has collaborated with include Dr. Pascal Magne,  Dr. Didier Dietschi, Dr. Gary Unterbrink, and Dr. Geoff Knight.

He formerly partnered with Dr. Simone Deliperi from Sardinia, Italy to pass these techniques on to other motivated dentists. He is a member of the Academy of Operative Dentistry & The International Association for Dental Research.

He has published numerous articles on advanced adhesive techniques that focus on caries detection, increasing long-term bond durability, stress reduction and tooth conservation. He and his son Dr. Davey Alleman founded the Alleman Biomimetic Mastership Program. He has mentored over 500 dentists worldwide.
