Speaker’s Bio:

Dr. Dalessandro received his DDS from Loyola, Chicago in 1979; residency at Rush Presbyterian in General Practice and Anesthesia; and periodontal fellowship at U of I. For over 35 years, he has practiced periodontics in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago and began placing dental implants in the early 1980s.
Dr. Dalessandro was one of the early adopters of CBCT scanning and uses this successfully in his practice with every implant case. He has also extensively studied lasers and their use in periodontics. Most recently, he has implemented intraoral scanning and 3D printing implant surgical guides in-house.  His teaching experience goes back to the 1990s on a wide range of topics; his goal is to pass along knowledge and information to his colleagues to help them become educated on current trends in dentistry. He now teaches groups of periodontists and dentists on a regular basis around the world regarding his topics of expertise, which are the physics of laser technology, and the current research in peri-implantitis.

Course Description:
