More about Dr. Allan M Acton
Meet Dr. Allan Acton Dr. Allan Acton opened Cary Family Dental in 2003 and since that time, has become one of the Triangleâ€™s most accomplished and trusted dentists. He is a graduate of the Medical College of Virginia and completed his advanced dental education residency at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry. In November 2007, Dr. Acton completed 216 hours of continued education in a nine-month implant continuum taught by the Triangle Dental Institute in Research Triangle Park, NC. His training included lectures, workshops, and one-on-one mentoring on implant surgical placement and restoration, associated bone preservation and ridge augmentation grafting, and connective tissue grafting. In 2008, Dr. Acton graduated with honors from The Hornbrook Groupâ€™s distinguished national training program and completed training on the DuraTHIN veneer. Dr. Acton is currently only one of four dentists in the state certified to provide DuraTHIN veneers and the only dentist certified in the Triangle and central NC area. That same year, Dr. Acton was voted â€œBest Cosmetic Dentistâ€ in western Wake County by Cary Magazine readers and repeated the distinction for the second consecutive year in 2009. Most recently, Dr. Acton received a Fellowship Award from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). The ICOI was founded in 1972 and has 12,000 members worldwide in 89 countries. It is the worldâ€™s largest dental implant organization, as well as the worldâ€™s largest provider of continuing dental implant education and currently has 2,582 active Fellows in the United States. The awarding of Fellowship status is one of the highest honors a professional society, such as the ICOI, can bestow on a dental professional involved in oral implantology. Nominees achieve Fellowship status through their efforts in education, research and actual clinical experiences. Dr. Acton and Cary Family Dental are also committed to their community. Together, they have raised over $60,000 for the Smiles for Life campaign, an annual four-month long campaign sponsored by the Crown Council that raises money to help children facing serious health and educational problems. The practice also provides free dental health presentations to local preschools and elementary schools in order to teach children on the basics of proper dental care. Dr. Acton is happily married and has an adorable daughter.
