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.

"Wow...what an excellent comprehensive look at the various designs developed by very creative minds over the years. Thank you, Ljuba!

"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."
