Alphabet Soup-One Dentist’s Journey

Why do you belong to the AGD? To track C.E.? Discounts for national meetings? Insurance Discounts?
Well this is an article of why I got involved in the AGD and the journey it has taken me on. After graduating from the University of Minnesota’s School of Dentistry in 1988, I joined a practice with my father and brother. That gave me incredible insight into how much I DID NOT know about dentistry.
With my father’s love of continuing education, I was motivated to start taking courses to fill in the gaps left by a 4-year dental education. I took courses by Harold Shavell, Lloyd Miller, Peter Dawson, Jack Turbyfill and others. It wasn’t long before I started questioning denture techniques, esthetics, centric relation and began a journey that I am still on 27 years later.
