My Commitment to Continuing Education
Continuing education has always been important to me. While still in dental school, I realized that a residency program to learn advanced skills not taught in dental school was a necessity. I have taken continuing education very seriously to this day. So much so, that I have been recognized by the New York State Dental Association for going above the yearly requirement of course work.
Dentistry is constantly changing. Equipment and materials improve and dental concepts evolve. Keeping active teaching in a residency program, writing and lecturing to dental professionals give me an opportunity to share my area of expertise with others. Conversely, taking courses lets me improve my efficiency and keep up with the latest dental concepts to improve the treatment options I offer to my patients.
Learning and improving my skills go hand in hand with providing the best care to my patients.
