I have gone to many elementary schools to educate on the orthodontic field and well as preventive care.
Over the course of the past 23 years, I have attended several continuing education courses. Most of these courses were focused on current orthodontic technology and treatment of patients.
I have also attended OSHA training courses yearly for the past 15 years.
I believe in continual learning to help advance myself as well as the practice I work for.
