Introduction to Biomimetic Dentistry (Ep 14 and 38)

Dental CE

About This Course

You will earn 2 hours of CE.

Dr. David Alleman and Dr. Davey Alleman are vanguards in the Biomimetic dental movement. In the first part of this course and they’ll discuss their article “The Protocols of Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry.” In part two Dr. Schiffenhaus will discuss the complex inter-workings of the dentin enamel complex (DEC or DEJ) and make a compelling argument for how it functions as an organ. A fundamental understanding for the DEC/DEJ is necessary for understanding how to properly practice advanced adhesive dentistry. Why? Because, the DEC/DEJ is nature’s perfect bonding of enamel to dentin. Biomimetic dentists aim to mimic this biological structure in their restorations. In this course, you will take a quiz per each episode of the dental digest podcast and then obtain CE credit. To read more about our refund/cancellation policy click here. To contact us click here.
