Disclosure Consultations to Manufacturers
       The credibility of dental educators is extremely important. In recent years this has been very problematic for the profession since manufacturers have become involved with a larger number of courses. By its very nature, manufacturer involvement represents a potential conflict of interest.
       Dr. Albers does not lecture for manufacturers nor does he accept compensation from the sale of any product. However, he receives product samples for evaluation from almost every manufacturer. In addition, almost all dental manufacturers have donated dental materials to the dental schools at which he teaches, for use in his postgraduate courses. Dr. Albers selects these materials to represent all manufacturers equally. No emphasis is given to any company in any course.
       The following list of extended contacts with manufacturers is provided to allow
the assessment of any potential conflict of interest.
