Been in dentistry for almost forty years, and seen everything evolve from the early days of dentistry when we just did silver fillings, amalgams, mercury silver fillings, to where the innovations especially things like cosmetic dentistry, the beautiful smiles you see, weren't even truly available when I was back in school and when I learned what I learned. Dental implants had made a huge difference in the quality of life of so many people, it's been a real wonderful journey from some very basic dental procedures that were done at dental offices, and now we're so aware of making it a better patient experience from sedation to as many minimally invasive and conservative procedures as possible, some wonderful advances that patients are now able to take advantage of.
The educational background really has become out of dental school learning a constant education about the new things that dentistry has been able to evolve into. In fact it used to start out that the things that were being brought into dentistry were mostly being brought by the manufacturing companies. [inaudible 00:01:17] education is a constant learning process. There's so much to know, so much more to stay on top of if you're going to consider staying in dentistry and being able to present services to patients that are cutting edge and that are in their best interest. The education part is really an ongoing process as part of your dental practice, part of your dental life.
