The Canadian Institute of Occlusion was established to elevate dentists beyond the concepts of occlusion learned in university. Some colleagues may feel helpless when faced with various problems related to occlusion.
Dr. Alain Aubé is known for his ability to explain complex concepts in a clear and understandable way. His colorful explanations are grounded in science and provide practical clinical applications that can be used on a daily basis. Through his many case presentations, he sheds light on topics that may have previously seemed unclear or ambiguous.
As one student states, 'Dr. Aubé's love for teaching and passion for the profession shines through. He is always there for us.

Dr Alain Aubé

Dr Alain Aubé graduated from the University of Montreal Dental Faculty in 1984. He immediately after underwent a tailored multi disciplinary residency program, with special emphasis on full mouth prosthodontics and orthognathic surgery. After a few years of private practice he continued with the full curriculum at the Dawson Center. From there he was introduced to Dr Mark Piper and followed his complete program on TMJ pathology.

From 1998 to 2000, he collaborated with the Montreal Migraine Clinic in a research program that studied the effect of occlusal equilibration on chronic tension type headaches. The results were presented at the prestigious American Academy of Restorative Dentistry meeting in Chicago in February 2000.

In September of 2007, he published in "Dentistry Today" an article "Treating severe malocclusion : A question of Principles". That initiated for him a series of lectures. He presented in 2008, 2009 and 2010 multiple lectures and courses at the Montreal International Dental Convention.

In 2008, he founded the « Canadian Occlusion Institute », an institute dedicated to teaching: 1) TMJ pathologies from a medical/orthopedic standpoint 2) teaches diagnosis and treatment of occlusally related problems.
He is quickly being recognized in Quebec as the leading occlusion-TMJ expert, as he is being referred to by prosthodontists, orthodontists and oral surgeons, as well as general practitioners.
