Robert H. Gregg, II, DDS, president and chairman of the board, Millennium Dental Technologies (MDT), has been honored with a recognition by Dentistry Today in its selection of “Leaders In Continuing Dental Education.” Dentistry Today, established in 1982 with a circulation of nearly 150,000, is the nation’s leading clinical news magazine for dentists.
Dr. Gregg has been a member of Dentistry Today‘s Continuing Education Editorial Board since October 2008, and has been named one of Dentistry Today‘s Leaders in CE consistently since December 2009. “I’m pleased with this recognition by Dentistry Today,” says Dr. Gregg. “I’ve dedicated my life to educating the dental community and patients alike in the treatment of periodontal disease and I’m honored to be named one of Dentistry Today’sleaders.”
Dr. Gregg is the co-innovator of the patented LANAP® protocol for the treatment of all stages of periodontitis — including “hopeless” teeth — with less pain. This patient-friendly laser periodontitis treatment is histologically proven to regenerate the attachment apparatus lost to periodontal disease. Patients experience little to no post-operative discomfort because the procedure does not require the use of scalpels nor the placement of sutures, allowing for a faster, easier recovery.
Twenty-seven percent of active U.S. members of the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) licensed to practice in the United States are now practitioners of the LANAP® protocol. All LANAP®-trained clinicians receive their training from the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry (IALD). The IALD, an ADA-CERP and AGD-PACE recognized provider, is a non-profit educational and research entity dedicated to providing outcome-based clinical training. The IALD’s training continuum is a year-long, live-patient, hands-on program that ensures the clinician is safe and effective in the LANAP® technique. Millennium Dental Technologies manufactures the PerioLase® MVP-7™ digital laser, which is specifically developed for the patented LANAP® protocol for the treatment of periodontal disease and the LAPIP™ protocol for the treatment of ailing and failing dental implants. Dr. Gregg maintains a thriving private practice in Cerritos, with his partner and wife, Dawn M. Gregg, DDS.
