Dr. Davey Alleman
Dr. Davey Alleman is featured on episode 14, 19, 20 and 25 of the Dental Digest Podcast. Dr. Davey Alleman currently practices in Provo, Utah with his father Dr. David Alleman with a focus on biomimetic dentistry. He received his Doctor of Dental Medicine from Roseman University of Health Sciences in 2015.
He formerly practiced dentistry in the U.S. Army. He is an instructor for the Alleman Biomimetic Mastership program and is passionate to improve dental outcomes through minimally invasive biomimetic dentistry.
He has been published in Journal of Operative Dentistry and Inside Dentistry. He is very active in documenting his cases and dental progress on Instagram.
He coauthored the article “The Protocols of Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry: 2002 to 2017” in which he stated:
“During the last 15 years, the restorative approach has steadily evolved, progressing from mechanical retention to advanced adhesion. This transition was fostered by a wealth of scientific publications, improvements in adhesive materials, and most importantly, worldwide dissemination of the science and techniques of advanced adhesion…When performing a biomimetic restoration, it is vital to visualize the accomplishment of the protocols. Magnification in the 5X to 8X range is highly recommended when performing a biomimetic restoration. The use of a surgical microscope or high-powered loupes makes treatment very predictable.
Beyond the biomimetic paradigms, stress reducing protocols, and bond maximizing protocols, there are other principles that are related to biomimetic restorative dentistry. Minimally-invasive dentistry, structural analysis of existing tooth structure, and polymerization dynamics of composites are important topics that fully-trained biomimetic restorative dentists need to understand.
The purpose of using biomimetic restorative concepts and protocols is to increase the longevity of restorative dental treatments and to reduce or eliminate future cycles of retreatment. In addition, conservation of tooth structure prevents periodontal complications and pulp death. Dentists and patients who choose biomimetic dentistry enjoy these benefits every day.”
