Dr. Bram Alster received his BS in biology at Rutgers University and then attended FDU School of Dentistry receiving his degree in 1984. Following graduation, he traveled to Israel to volunteer as a dentist for children on a kibbutz and upon his return, he became associated with two Dental practices specializing in Prosthodontics and General Dentistry. After three years Dr. Alster opened his own practice in Fair Lawn and became associated with a former teacher and mentor. He has always participated in many cosmetic and implant programs including several ones that were hands-on and included a mini-residency on cosmetics and part-time prosthetic program for full mouth rehabilitation at NYU School of Dentistry. In 2009 Dr. Alster traveled to Portugal where he was sponsored to attend a seminar on ‘All on 4 Implants with Dr. Palo Malo and in 2010 he became an attending instructor at St Joseph’s Hospital in Patterson, New Jersey. In addition, Dr. Alster completed a 2-year implant program at NYU, studying mostly the surgical procedures involved in the placement of Dental Implants. Though he’d already been successfully restoring implants for over twenty years he desired an even more advanced training to broaden his scope in such treatment and best serve his patients. Dr. Alster is also accredited as a Preferred INVISALIGN provider; a recognition for treating a greater number of orthodontic Invisalign cases.
