PBM Implant uses 680 nm near-infrared (NIR) light, which is similar to heat lamps, to deliver energy gently but directly to the bone and tissue around the implant body. Similar to plants and photosynthesis, the tissue can absorb this light energy and convert it to chemical energy, which stimulates the cells for faster bone and soft tissue regeneration and faster implant stability.
the Founder of PBM Healing, graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (with distinction) from the University of Western Ontario. He received the University Gold Medal and completed a concurrent master’s degree in Pathology. Dr. Al has earned multiple other degrees and received numerous awards, including the pre–Doctoral IADR Hatton award for his research on MRIs. He is a serial entrepreneur, had a diverse career as a solo dentist, and owned large multi-dental groups in Canada, the UK, and the US. He has owned dental labs and specialized orthodontic labs, a dental model company, and a company that manufactured orthodontic wires and accessories.
He was a KOL for NobelBiocare for many years and worked with the team to develop the NobelBiocare Replace Implant. He ran a mini dental residency to train dentists and their teams in dental implant surgery and restorative procedures.
He enjoys lecturing worldwide, focusing on applying Photobiomodulation in medicine and dentistry. Most notable is the application of PBM principles in the medical and dental devices that he has developed to help alleviate pain and enhance healing.
He also lectures on personal and practice development in his role as a Coach. He is a published author, most notably for the “E Myth Dentist” with Michael Gerber. His current book on General principles of Photobiomodulation is in its final draft stages.
