I graduated from University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 1988. In May 2003, I was awarded the honor of “Distinguished Mentor” at the Kois Center for Continuing Dental Education. In June 2007, I earned the Fellowship Award from the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD). The Fellowship Award requires at least five hundred hours of continuing education, including peer-to-peer case presentations and rigorous testing of knowledge across all areas of dentistry. In August 2010, I was awarded Fellowship in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Less than five percent of general dentists nationwide achieve Fellowship in the AGD.
Currently I am pursuing Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry. I remained committed to continuing education on a regular basis, including my work towards the Mastership Award from the Academy of General Dentistry. This requires that an annual commitment to various courses and professional development meetings each year.
Dental care benefits from many new developments in technology and health sciences research. The best way to provide our patients the highest standard of care is to be up to date with the newest techniques and materials. It is exciting to see how the advances in dentistry provide more predictable options for our patients’ healthcare needs.
