Dr. Alex attended Penn State University on an athletic scholarship where he graduated with a degree in Biology in 1977. He then took advanced level graduate courses in both chemistry and biology before working at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia. He then attended Tufts University Dental School where he earned his DMD in 1981. He has taken thousands of hours of continuing dental education over the last 35 years with an emphasis on occlusion, adhesion, comprehensive dentistry, materials, and cosmetic dentistry. He lectures and teaches on a regular basis and “Dentistry Today” has continually named him as one of the top educators in dentistry. Dr. Alex is an accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and past president of the AACD New York Chapter. To achieve accredited status dentists must demonstrate an extremely high proficiency in reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry by presenting a number of peer reviewed clinical cases before an accreditation committee.  A comprehensive written examination must also be passed.  As of December 2010, only ten dentists in New York State had successfully achieved accredited status.
