Advanced Biological Dentistry Residency

Open Enrollment for 2022

Learn how to revolutionise your dentistry in 2 intensive weeks

For the first time in 22 years, Dr. Miguel Stanley opens the doors to education at White Clinic. This is an exclusive individual one-on-one residency program in Lisbon, Portugal. It is designed for experienced dentists who intend to revolutionise Dentistry and Health Care using the most advanced technology and techniques available on the market to heal the body, starting with the mouth. The Residency is held only 2 times a year for only one participant at a time, for a full immersive experience.

Unique experience at a world leading biological dentistry centre

White Clinic is a world recognised leading dental centre focused on Advanced Biological Comprehensive Dentistry. Transforming smiles and improving lives for over 22 years in Lisbon, Portugal. Founded by Dr. Miguel Stanley, one of the top 100 dentists in the world, the medical team uses the latest science and digital technology to go beyond treating just teeth, also reaching the immune system and systemic health. Using technology as its main ally for innovative solutions, applied to more complete, stress-free, pain-free and effective dental treatments. All this while building amazing smiles with state-of-the-art digital technologies and an in-house laboratory with master ceramists.

For experienced dentists only

The Advanced Biological Dentistry Residency is for experienced dentists only, who want to help change the paradigm that the mouth is separate from the body. 

A minimum 5 years of clinical experience is mandatory to attend this unique program. At least one post-graduate degree and proof of publications in scientific journals, as well as belonging to more than one scientific organisation as an active member. We will also favour those that are educators and have extensive experience with digital technologies.

A license to practice will not be required for this residency as it will be observational only. Learning the method is what matters most and that is why experience matters. 

This program occurs only twice a year. The Residency committee selects only 1 candidate per program and there is a long waiting list.

Advanced Biological Dentistry Program

Only 2 lucky candidates a year get to come and do this.

These are just some of the most relevant areas in dentistry that you will have the opportunity to explore:

Day 1

The 4 Slow Dentistry® Cornerstones

We are the first Slow Dentistry® certified clinic in Portugal, a philosophy created by Dr. Miguel Stanley, which is currently transforming dentistry in more than 40 countries. And it has also allowed White Clinic to stand out throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. The entire White Clinic team receives ongoing training in order to practice the 4 Slow Dentistry® cornerstones in everything they do. Learn more here:

Day 2

Ozone Therapy Real Cases

Our resident will experience Ozone Therapy applied to multiple real cases in immune dentistry and regenerative medicine. Ozone has proven to be efficient as an antioxidant, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and regenerator.

Day 3

Toxic Dentistry

Understanding that bad dentistry not only jeopardises oral health, but general health as well, is crucial to contemporary dentistry. Poorly performed dentistry can result in persistent infections and inflammations that often trigger other health issues. Our resident will learn how to identify and treat toxic dentistry cases using Advanced Biological Dentistry.

Day 4

Laser Dentistry

Minimally invasive yet appropriately active is the foundation of Biological Dentistry. Making use of Laser Dentistry is essential in most dental treatments. This is a day dedicated to learning the principles and procedures of Laser Dentistry for clinical and surgical use.

Day 5

Immunotherapies in Biological Dentistry

We understand that Systemic Health is connected to Oral Health. Over the past years, Dr. Miguel Stanley and his White Clinic team have developed a portfolio of exclusive Biological Boosting Therapies that can be combined with all types of dental procedures and boost the patient’s immune system. Dr. Ana Paz, who developed the exclusive Paz Protocol, will walk our resident through it all.  

Day 6

Blood test prescription and interpreting results

Diagnostics is essential to outlining a proper treatment plan and the starting point is a blood test – knowledge regarding blood indicators and how to interpret them is crucial and the most precise way to comprehend if there are imbalances in the body that could be contributing to the root cause of the health problem at hand. Our resident will also understand that this is a vital tool for evaluating changes and improvements before and after dental surgery.

Day 7

ART (Autonomic Response Testing)

ART is a meticulous and highly effective diagnostic technique that allows the detection of the real cause of illness, disturbances in the body, allergies and their entry points. As the resident will learn, this biological protocol is key to establishing a suitable and cause-related treatment for the patient, who benefits from a biological solution for understanding symptoms and underlying health issues. The resident will have the opportunity to work alongside Dr. Ana Paz once again.

Day 8

S.M.A.R.T (Safe Amalgam Removal Technique) Protocol and Management of complex interdisciplinary treatment plans

The S.M.A.R.T protocol is a pillar of Advanced Biological Dentistry because it is essential for safely removing all metals from the human body, starting with the mouth. Our resident will not only learn the major techniques and principles regarding chelation therapy, but also how to detoxify the entire organism with exclusive White Clinic protocols. Learning how an effective treatment plan and its correct approach can help save time and stress, while obtaining optimal outcomes is another core focus of the day.

Day 9

Protocols for guided surgery

White Clinic is renowned for its rigorous protocols applied to both simple and complex dental cases: from facial scan to CBCT and intraoral scan acquisition. The resident will gain in-depth knowledge on how the different systems function and how to plan each type of case from start to finish, using guided surgery.

Day 10

Digital workflow in prosthodontics: scan, design, 3D printing and milling procedures

One full day completely dedicated to digital workflow in a privileged environment, where the resident will contact with the most advanced digital dentistry protocols and different intraoral scanners, laboratory scanners, facial scanner, 3D printers, milling machine, among other digital devices and software. An advanced collection of healing technology.
