WINTER APPEAL CHARITY WEBINAR
An Introduction to Biomimetic Dentistry-The Six Lessons Approach by Dr David Alleman
Although “Biomimetics” has become a hot topic in the world of dentistry recently, this is not a new concept. Literally speaking, biomimetics simply means mimicking nature. In dentistry, this means using scientific knowledge of tooth structure and properties to help us restore teeth as closely as possible to natural tooth structure. The aim of biomimetic dentistry is to produce restorations that far surpass the average filling and its lifespan.
Aim:To introduce biomimetic dentistry and explain how it can be implemented in everyday practice using David Alleman’s 6 lessons approach to produce superior restorations and predictable clinical outcomes
- To give an overview of biomimetic dentistry principles and its key concepts such as immediate dentine sealing (IDS), resin coating, deep margin elevation (DME)
- To introduce specific biomimetic materials
- To explain particular biomimetic techniques
- To present specific key literature and papers
- To show how all the above techniques can be brought together clinically in everyday practice.
Dr. David Alleman
Dr. David S. Alleman has been practicing dentistry for 43 years since his graduation from the University of the Pacific in 1978. The first three were in the US Navy and the last 40 in Utah. In 1995 he started studying adhesive dentistry with Dr. Ray Bertolotti. In 1999 he started studying with Dr. John Kois. These two mentors guided him through a 10 year/10,000 hour review of the literature on which advanced adhesive (Biomimetic) dentistry is based. Other mentors and collaborators are Dr. Gary Unterbrink, Dr. Didier Dietschi, Dr. Pascal Magne and Dr. Geoff Knight. He is a member of the Academy of Operative Dentistry & The International Association for Dental Research.

-The Glasgow Dental Initiative
The Glasgow Dental Initiative was established in 2015 with the aim of improving the oral health of individuals experiencing homelessness in Glasgow.
We are constantly evolving and adapting to the needs of our service users. Furthermore, alongside delivering essential dental supplies we advocate for changes at policy level for groups experiencing social exclusion.
On the run up to this Christmas, we are teaming up with two other charity organisations to make sure all donations are items people really need, and that they go to support those who need it the most in our communities.
We will continue to deliver our oral health packs, but toiletry items, food vouchers and winter clothing are also provided.
A charitable monetary donation can also be made directly to our registered charity account on:

The Glasgow Poverty Relief Project
The Glasgow Poverty Project are helping to tackle poverty in Glasgow. We identified those most in need as well as channels through which we can help. We initially appealed for both one-off and regular donations from the community and were overwhelmed by the response. The result was monthly standing orders as well as weekly donations of cooked food and fresh fruit.
We have learned that most asylum seekers and refugees have limited or no access to meat and fresh produce. Through the support of the Glasgow Central Mosque, the anti-poverty initiative provides over 350 weekly food packs to the asylum seekers and refugees. Every Sunday our volunteers distribute food parcels to destitute asylum seekers and refugees.
We have distributed over 30,000 food packs during the COVID 19 pandemic. Online donations to support this project can be made www.totalgiving.co.uk/appeal/gcmpovertyrelief
