Hey, Get Off the Phone!!

Each day in the United states on average 9 people die and over 1000 people are injured due to texting and driving. We have become obsessed! The fact that we get distracted while “texting” no matter what other activity we are involved in is an understatement.

A Hidden Gem

Last summer I attended a small, local continuing education course put on by Dentsply. I was working toward my ADAA Fellowship award at that time and took advantage of this morning meeting. The theme of this course was dental implants, care and maintenance and was designed for hygienist and assistants. The speaker talked about an organization that I had never heard of. Come to find out, I’ve not found many people who have. The organization I learned about that day is the Association of Dental Implant Auxiliaries (ADIA) a component of the International Congress of Oral Implantologist (ICOI). The ADIA is an organization that is open to all office manager or clinical team members.

My Journey to Fellowship and Beyond

I like to describe the road through the ADAA Fellowship/Mastership program as education excellence. Having been a dental assistant for 32 years, I am always learning something new. This world of dentistry is ever changing, and if you want to be the best you can be, you’ve got to keep up. I believe that every assistant that takes their career seriously needs to go through the program. It shows you are dedicated and determined, it makes you stand out as a true professional. As an educator, what better way to lead than by example?
