I immediately felt more confident explaining these concepts to patients which has helped with case acceptance. Highly recommend her course!"

ALF Beyond the Basics - ONLINE


This advanced course is packed with information that every ALF dentist needs: case reports, designs, topics, common problems, case finishing and retention. If you have some experience and are ready to get to the next level, this course is for you.


"This is a fantastic course! I appreciated in particular the variety of cases shown all the way from the initial patient intake to case completion, follow-up, and the insights on what could have be done better. 

I need to see the whole picture and be prepared for phase 2 even though I am not quite there yet with most of my cases. In other classes, I did not see much case finishing or instructions about phase 2 treatment.

Dr. Lemke’s classes taught me to be very specific with treatment planning, data gathering, and measurements. This has relieved a lot of stress that I experienced in the past with ALF cases. I highly recommend this course - thank you, Dr. Lemke!"
Anna Jumtina, DDS, Boulder, CO

"Wow...what an excellent comprehensive look at the various designs developed by very creative minds over the years.

When I teach dentists about biomimetics and ALF, I recommend Dr. Lemke's courses to them. Ljuba covers both all the basics and many of the nuances of this wonderful technique.   She has turned what sometimes seems a mysterious process into easy to grasp elements that anyone can learn with practice. There are so many pearls in her courses that any dentist - with or without previous experience -  can benefit from her teaching.  I know I did."

“Ljuba has been a great support for me as I’ve grown into a more experienced ALF practitioner. Often, just knowing she is there should I need help has given me enormous peace of mind. As we are discussing my cases during virtual consults, I always get valuable insights from Ljuba on how to proceed. I am ever so grateful for her support!! “
