Do you ever wonder how your Montclair dentists at Montclair Smile Design continue to be on the cutting edge of dentistry? Here’s your answer: Continuing Education! Not only do Dr. Becker and Dr. Catalano love dentistry, but they are dedicated to learning about the latest changes, newest techniques and best materials the industry has to offer.
Over the course of each year, various organizations offer continuing education courses across the world. The American Academy of Costmetic Dentistry, or the AACD, is one of those organizations to which both our doctors here at Montclair Smile Design proudly belong. Once a year, the AACD gathers the top 1% of cosmetically minded dentists and staff and offers a variety of classes. The Montclair Smile Design staff has attended several of these conferences since it was founded in the 1980’s. Dr. Becker and Dr. Catalano strive to better themselves as dentists, and want the same for their staff! They encourage the entire team to join them at these conferences. The most recent one was right on the other side of the bay in San Francisco!
Your Montclair dentists learn the latest philosophies, materials and techniques. There are even hands on learning experiences! They collaborate with other like minded dentists, creating a focused and driven environment. Our hygienists, assistants and administrative team attend classes geared toward their specific areas of dentistry. There are courses on communication, scheduling and even on how to listen effectively to patient needs.
During the AACD conferences, the attendees are also given the opportunity to participate in a fundraising campaign called Give Back a Smile. This campaign focuses on helping restore smiles to women who have suffered dental trauma because of domestic or sexual violence.
These conferences are simply another way that Dr. Becker and Dr. Catalano continue to bring you the high quality dentistry that you deserve.
