Wow! This weather has been incredible! I am not a winter fan so I am loving this. The nice thing is that the kids on Spring Break will not have to travel to Florida to get the warm temperatures. Hope whatever you do during your Spring Break that it is fun and relaxing!
A couple of weekends ago I got to attend the Chicago Mid-Winter Dental Convention and had a great time of learning and experiencing Chicago again. I attended some courses to update my skills incuding: porcelain veneers, new teeth whitening/bleaching techniques, and the lastest in cosmetic white fillings.
In April I will taking a hands-on course in Houston, TX on using Lasers in dentistry and in Oct. I will traveling to Utah to attend a motorcycle/dental CE course. A bunch of dentist will be riding throughout southern Utah sightseeing in the daytime and in the evening we will be attending some continuing education classes. Life is Good. Take care!
Our office just sent out our monthly email newsletter. In the newsletter we are offering a "Christmas Special", $100 off the regular price of $400 for our in-office teeth whitening session. This would make a great gift for someone in your life that is hard to buy for or already has everything. Just give our office a call at 636-938-4450 or stop by and we can print up a gift certificate for you.
Don't forget that many dental plans have benefits that end at the end of the year and if you don't use it, you lose it. So, there is still a little time before the end of the year to get some of the dentistry done that you have been putting off. See you soon and Merry Christmas!!
I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and hope that you get to spend some good quality time with your family. I would have to say that Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday because it involves the 3 things in life that I really enjoy: Family, Food, and Football!! And it also makes us take time to give God thanks for everything He has done for us.
The trip last week to Jamaica for working with the organization, Great Shape Jamaica, went very well. We had over 30 volunteers for the week, which included myself and 5 other dentist from around the U.S. and 12 last year dental students from Temple Dental School in Philadelphia. It was a great group of people and even though we worked hard during the day extracting teeth and doing fillings, we had a fun time together. Sandals Resorts helped sponsor this mission trip by providing the lodging for everyone at their resort in Montego Bay. The clinic that I worked in was in Maroon Town which was about an hour and fifteen minutes drive up into the hills of Jamaica on some pretty bad roads. Once we got there, we had one Oral Surgeon, about 6 dental students and 3 dental assistants. Everyone but me performed mostly tooth extractions and I got to do fillings, mostly on the front teeth. The front teeth are very important for the Jamaicans to keep because without them it is very difficult to get a good job. The dental equipment we had was adequate but very frustrating because something was always breaking down. It was the hardest that I have worked in a long time, but at the same time it was very rewarding! In the evenings, we would all meet up for dinner and have a good time around the resort. Coming back to the U.S. made me realize how lucky we are to have our basic infrastructure like nice roads, clean water and reliable electricity that we all take for granted.
