This week the Huntington Hilton hosted the Greater Long Island Dental Meeting. I spent all day Tuesday at the meeting, talking to dental suppliers about materials we use in my Suffolk County dental office and learning about new dental materials available. Talking to the suppliers is a great learning opportunity for interested dentists. I also attended one of the many courses offered. I take many days of continuing dental education each year so I can keep up with current techniques, materials and technologies.
I am very excited that I will be taking a year-long course on advanced dental restoration next year at the New York University School of Dental Medicine. I will be treating patients at the school’s clinic under supervision of top dental clinicians, and I will be attending lectures on advanced dental restoration and cosmetic dentistry, including implants, veneers, crowns, bridges and dentures. The course meets one day a week for 28 weeks. This will better enable me to offer dental treatment options for the increasing numbers of patients who come to my office with severely broken-down dentitions.
