Alan L. Rosenfeld, DDS, FACD

Dr. Alan Rosenfeld, attended the University of Illinois, College of Dentistry, where he graduated with honors and awards for academic excellence. Following his dental training, Dr. Rosenfeld completed a general practice residency at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago. He is hospital trained and licensed to provide intravenous sedation for patient comfort.

In 1977, Dr. Rosenfeld completed his specialty training in periodontics at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania. From 1977-1983, he served as an Associate Professor of Periodontics and Program Director of Graduate Periodontics at Northwestern University Dental School.

In 1982, he qualified to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. This certification is held by less than one third of all periodontists. In 1995, he was inducted into the American College of Dentists, an honor held by fewer than three percent of all dentists.

Dr. Rosenfeld has lectured extensively both nationally and internationally and presented several hundred presentations on dental topics throughout his career. He began using CT scans for diagnosis and treatment planning in 1987, nearly two decades before its wide acceptance in dentistry. Most notably, his groundbreaking work with Dr. Richard Mecall and later Dr. George Mandelaris has set the educational and professional standard for the use of CT scans for diagnostic purposes, surgical treatment planning, computer guided implant placement, and determination of prosthetic outcomes in the dental profession. He has published in numerous peer-reviewed journals and textbooks and is considered an expert in this field. Dr. Rosenfeld’s most current accomplishment is as editor and author of multiple chapters for the internationally recognized textbook entitled The Art of Computer Guided Implantology.

Dr. Rosenfeld serves on the medical advisory board of Materialise Dental, a Belgium company which manufactures SimPlant software for CT scan analysis and surgical implant guides. He is also a mentor to the SimPlant Academy, a website devoted to this field. Dr. Rosenfeld lectures for Biomet 3i, an international dental implant manufacturer on the topic of CT guided surgery.

Dr. Rosenfeld is actively involved in numerous professional organizations, including the American Academy of Periodontology, the Illinois Society of Periodontology, the Midwest Society of Periodontology, the Academy of Osseointegration, the American Dental Association, the Illinois State Dental Society and the Chicago Dental Society.

Dr. Rosenfeld has been a member of the attending medical staff in the Department of Surgery, Division of Dentistry, at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital for nearly 30 years. He is also a Clinical Professor in the Graduate Periodontics Department at the University of Illinois - College of Dentistry, where his chief responsibility is teaching residents in periodontal plastic surgery and implant surgery.
