Certified Biological Nutritional Dental Professional Course




IABDM is excited to offer the first Certification Program of its kind. The Certified Biological Nutritional Dental Professional designation will elevate your knowledge to several levels beyond IABDM’s Biological 101 Certification. You will learn about diet, lifestyle, and environmental triggers which all affect gut health. And gut health is critical for oral health and overall health and wellness.

Dr. Al Danenberg takes you on a journey that starts with skeletal remains of our primal ancestors to present day primal societies and westernized societies. You will appreciate how chronic diseases and dental diseases manifest. Dr. Danenberg provides various original study materials to market your practice, create an evidence-based in-office nutritional counseling program, and educate your patients with cutting-edge articles. You also will receive specific protocols to help your patients heal an unhealthy gut, transition to healthy diets, improve their immune system, and clean their mouth efficiently.

Once you complete the course and successfully pass the 50-multiple-choice exam, IABDM will provide you with 8 CE Credits, the certification of Certified Biological Nutritional Dental Professional, and a wooden plaque suitable to be displayed proudly in your office.
