ALAN M. SMITH, CDT

Alan participates in industry organizations dedicated to improving the practice of dentistry. He employs techniques acquired by studying alongside dentists and with many of the world's leaders in dental technology, most recently at the Society for Color and Appearance in Dentistry (SCAD) conference.

Alan has pursued continuing education with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American College of Prosthodontics, the Orange County Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and the Laguna Gnathological Study Group. He has also studied at the IDEA facility in San Francisco and at the Kois Center in Washington State.

A week studying with the master Naoki Aiba, CDT at his Monterey, CA studio took Alan's porcelain and photography skills to a new level and enable him to apply a photo collage technique to custom shade matching. Alan's next step was into applying digital color analysis to the custom shade matching process. His use of the eLABoraid technology and technique adds cross-polarization to photo collage to render measureable results.
