He is also a member of the International Dental Implant Association (IDIA).

Dr. Dean has been certified to place 3M Mini Dental Implants and Hahn Standard Implant.  He is also the first dentist in the area to be certified to place clear cosmetic braces for adults known as Six Month Smiles.  His staff is well trained in providing the finest individual care and is dedicated to serving his patients.

Dr. Dean presently volunteers at the Free Clinic of Central Virginia in Lynchburg and is an Honorary Faculty Member of the VCU School of Dentistry.  This appointment is as an Adjunct Clinical Instructor for the Free Clinic serving as a mentor for the dental students from the School of Dentistry.
