Resident Spotlight: Dr. Alan Rosen
Dr. Alan Rosen practices in his hometown, Springfield, MO. Before getting into dentistry, Rosen played professional golf. When his golf career was coming to an end, his wife mentioned how she
thought he would make a great dentist, just like her father. His interest was immediately peaked. Soon enough, he fell in love with dentistry and being able to help people. After school, Rosen began an associateship with his father-in-law. Now, he owns the practice and partners with his father-in-law. Dr. Rosen offers a wide variety of services, but after completing the one-year occlusal residency at The Stewart Center (formerly known as the Texas Center), BioRejuvenation Dentistry quickly became a passion.
Dr. Rosen was in the middle of working with the Schuster Center and will never forget Dr. Michael Schuster saying, “I haven’t done an equilibration in twenty years.” The fact that a Pankey dentist and instructor was no longer doing equilibrations shocked Rosen. And naturally, he had a few questions. Schuster immediately pointed him towards The Stewart Center.
Dr. Schuster ‘lit the fire,’ but it wasn’t until one Saturday morning when Rosen came across an article about a BioRejuvenation case Dr. Stewart completed. After seeing the results, Rosen was sold. “I was ready to hop on a plane and fly down there that morning,” says Rosen.
Dr. Rosen has completed the whole continuum at the Pankey Institute, as well as training with The Dawson Academy and The Scottsdale Center. “The Stewart Center is head and shoulders above anything I’ve done,” says Rosen. “It has helped my practice slow down and allows me to build greater patient relationships.”
“The pearl in the whole process is the relationship you attain with the patients coming in repeatedly. I can help people, restore their mouths without touching their teeth. This is a gift that I will cherish for the rest of my life.”
Dr. Rosen has put in a tremendous amount of work at The Stewart Center and has already completed multiple full-mouth restorations. We are excited to see what the future holds for him!
