I was delighted to take up the offer of a scholarship from Biohorizons to attend the Centre for Advanced Dental Education in Dallas.
This renowned clinic is run by Edward Patrick Allen. The course focuses on advanced intraoral plastic surgery techniques with the use of an alloderm which is a special tissue graft material. These techniques will allow recreation of a more natural result in oral restorations by increasing available tissue volume and quality.
The alloderm can be used in aesthetic applications to decrease or restore areas of gum recession. I am the first clinician from Scotland to have been trained in this technique and am very excited about using it with my patients.
