This short but busy week focused on current issues facing the dental profession. Dr. Jack Dillenberg had the opportunity to film a podcast with Dr. Howard Farran, Founder and CEO of Dentaltown, the online dental magazine reaching over 150,000 international dental providers. The podcast is expected to be viewed by over 33,000 dentists worldwide. Jack and Howard discussed many current issues including the future role of dentists in the emerging health-care system in the US to the development of midlevel providers and the use of silver diamine fluoride to control and prevent dental caries.
The Ariz. chapter of the ASDA held a competitive debate between Arizona’s two dental schools, Midwestern and ASDOH. Debate topics were on issues surrounding Midlevel Providers and Licensure by Live Patient Examination.
