12 Dec Dr. Greenfield invited to lecture to Memphis Dentist Study Group Dr. G talks to human dentists about pet dentistry
As the only non-DDS (human dentist) member of the Tennessee Dental Association (http://www.tenndental.org/mx/hm.asp?id=AboutTDA) I have the fortunate pleasure of attending and participating in dental discussion groups and lectures.
On Thursday, September 8, I had the honor of lecturing to a group of Memphis area dentists concerning some of the procedures I see on a daily basis. This included malocclusion therapy, advanced extraction procedures, root canal therapy, and addressing pain management for my dental patients.
The group was very interactive and many interesting questions were posed. As our dental practices are so alike, the questions were related to types of restorative materials I use a well as how I address oral pain for my patients. They were amazed at how similar the problems we see are like what they see with people. I use the same restoration composites and root canal materials that they use and the funny thing was they were amazed how long a dog’s tooth roots are! It was a wonderful educational experience on both ends.
Thanks to Dr. Jim Avery http://anothergulliverproduction.com/AveryAndMeadows-dotcom/ for inviting me to lecture.
