Are you utilizing this subject now? Every day, but the practice of dentistry is ever evolving. I take hundreds of hours of continuing education every year. A speaker once asked of the audience: "How many years experience do you have?" and their responses varied from a few years to over 40 years. He then made this statement: "Do you have X years of experience or do you have one year of experience and just repeated it X number of years? I feel that we should all continue to gain experience and improve ourselves personally and professionally.

What is an a fact about you that most don’t know? I was a bodyguard for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and the late Myra Kraft for three years after graduate school but before attending dental school.
