CONTINUING EDUCATION

New dental technologies are being developed at a very fast pace, and I believe continuing education is essential to provide you with the best possible care. Since establishing  practice in Pullman, I have continued to enroll in advanced courses in endodontics, periodontics, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry, earning hundreds of hours of CE credits.I also maintain active memberships in the American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, Spokane District Dental Society, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and Academy of General Dentistry, and participate in the Northwest Implant 
Study Club. Here is a current list of CE courses taken in recent years, with the most recent courses listed first:
