Dentists Continue to Learn after Dental School

To maintain licensure in Illinois, those in dentistry must attend Continuing Education courses throughout the year and report these to the State. Many courses are offered at Dental Conventions, like the annual Chicago Midwinter Meeting that was recently held Feb 22-24th at McCormick Place. My favorite part of these events is learning about the new procedures and products that improve my patients’ care and dental health.

Additionally, I “give back” to my Prosthodontic specialty by evaluating Prosthodontic Fellows four to six times annually. These dentists study the nuances of proper fit and compatible design when creating prostheses for patients. This requires aptitude in both science and art, as well as a strong knowledge of dental materials. Occasionally, I present a lecture to the Illinois branch of the American College of Prosthodontists and I am on the Board at UIC.

It is a privilege to add more information into my head almost daily, then share it with others within my profession AND those seated in the dental chair!
