Dr. Daniel Melker was educated at the University of Florida 1966 to 1969; Emory University 1969 to 1973; Boston University School of Dentistry 1973 to 1975 completing his Specialty training in Periodontics. Dr. Melker currently lectures to the University of Florida Periodontic and Prosthodontic graduate programs on the Periodontic-Restorative relationship and has also lectured at Baylor University, University of Houston, UAB, as well as LSU Graduate Periodontal Program and many others. Dr. Melker’s lectures include the Florida Society of Periodontics, the Pankey Institute, American Academy of Periodontology and the Florida Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. The highlight of Dr. Melker’s presentations occurred when he spoke to the Illinois Academy of Periodontics. Each Periodontist was able to bring his or her referrals which truly made it a TEAM concept presentation. In April 2011 Dr. Melker had the pleasure to speak at the FEDI meeting at the University of Missouri.
