Dr. Allan Acton, of Cary Family Dental, recently completed a one-week, 50-hour training course provided by The Kois Center in Seattle. Twenty-two dental professionals from around the world attended the two-course track, which taught the dentists how to better and more comprehensively diagnose and treat complex dental needs including periodontal disease, cavities, and jaw and bite problems.

The Kois Center is located on the shore of Lake Union in the heart of Seattle, Washington and uses a variety of high technological teaching modalities—ranging from computer animation to live video demonstrations. Each participant´s desk is climate controlled and allows plenty of personal space for didactic and simulated clinical aspects of the courses. The Center´s hi-tech dental office and laboratory interface with the conference room allow for questions and answers during the over-the-shoulder demonstrations.

Dr. Acton completed Course I: Treatment Planning I: Diagnostically Driven and Course II: Functional Occlusion I: Science Driven Management. Combined, both courses provided 54 continuing education credit hours and included lecture, demonstration, case presentation, and discussion. This dental program is one of the top programs of its kind in the country, and Dr. Acton said the experience was both educational and fun.

"This was an intense training experience, and the knowledge I was able to acquire in such a short period of time is truly invaluable," says Dr. Acton. "Cary Family Dental believes that if our patients feel comfortable with their dental options and the dental process as a whole, the better overall dental experience they’re likely to have. This training will allow me to continue to offer our patients the best dental health solutions currently available."

Dr. Acton opened Cary Family Dental in 2003 and has become one of the most accomplished and trusted dentists in the Triangle. He is a graduate of the Medical College of Virginia and completed his advanced dental education residency at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry. Dr. Acton is currently one of only six dentists in North Carolina certified to provide DuraTHIN veneers. In 2008, he graduated with honors from The Hornbrook Group’s distinguished national training program and received a Fellowship Award from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists in 2009.
