Dr. Alex Touchstone

Practicing Dentist

“I feel that in order to effectively teach others, it is important for me to prove the efficacy of techniques during daily patient care in my office. With that goal in mind, I balance my time between practicing, working in my in-house lab and lecturing.”

Dr. Touchstone continuously develops and perfects digital dental processes at his dental office in Hattiesburg. His talent and passion for excellence are reflected in every treatment process, uniquely designed to suit each patient’s needs. This day-to-day experience allows him to teach and inspire other dentists from a place of authenticity.

Technology Philosophy

Digital Dental Visionary

“Two decades ago, Lee Culp and I were the first dentist-lab team to produce a digital restoration via email without the use of a physical model. It was an exciting moment when the restoration fit perfectly. Today that process is mainstream. I still derive great pleasure out of proving new concepts in digital dentistry.”

Dr. Touchstone has lectured in 9 countries to audiences as large as 1000 attendees. Over the past two decades, he has also taught thousands of dentists and their teams integration of dental technologies in small group settings. His depth of knowledge coupled with a desire to help others succeed makes him a highly sought after presenter.
