Dr Lawrence Wallace is the developer and founder of the Larell One Step Denture. He received his DDS degree from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry. As an undergraduate he taught freshman dental students and tutored them in histology and pathology. Following dental school Dr Wallace did an internship and residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Long Island Jewish Medical Center/Queens Hospital Center. After completing the residency he returned to the Chicago area and practiced Oral surgery and Implantology for 22 years.
He entered a new phase of his professional life after relocating to California, becoming a consultant to the medical and dental industries with a focus on jaw and tmj surgery, dental implantology and sleep apnea.
The Larell One Step Denture was developed in 2003 when a great need was seen for a cost effective way to provide dentures to those who need them. The focus was to develop a denture that was affordable for the patient and profitable for the dentist.
After seven years of research and development, the Larell denture system came to the marketplace and is now providing comfortable, functional and esthetic dentures for thousands of people annually, both nationwide and internationally.
Larell has increased its scope to offer extensive clinical and hands on training experience for fabricating dentures, implant overdentures and immediate denture placement.
With the increased use of dental implants to stabilize dentures, Larell has developed a combination system for completing dentures and implants in the same visit, about two hours.
Dr Wallace has lectured extensively to the dental profession at all of the major dental meetings nationally and internationally. he is a visiting lecturer at many dental schools. The Larell One Step Denture is used in philanthropic dental missions in the US and in many foreign countries. The ability to bring on site single visit dentures offers many opportunities to bring dentures to areas otherwise not possible.
Working with Mission of Mercy, Remote Area Medical, the Veterans Administration and other foundations, the Larell One Step Denture is providing much needed denture care to those who need it.
In his free time Dr Wallace enjoys photography, golf and travel.
