Despite what my kids may think, being a grown-up doesn’t mean you get to stop going to school. In fact, if you’re a dentist, continuing education is a big part of your year. My team and I have attended a number of courses, usually within a 2 to 3 hour drive. But this summer, we were able to attend a big Invisalign course in Las Vegas. Emily, Taylor, Lauren, Lexi, and I all flew out to spend a few days learning about the latest advancements in Invisalign technology. I really enjoy attending continuing education courses because the other attendees and the people
enjoyed the lazy river, and played top golf! This trip was extra special because it was the last hurrah before Emily left us to start dental school, so I’m glad they were able to have some fun together. This was probably one of our most successful continuing education courses in a while. Being in Vegas was pretty cool, but more importantly, we learned something new about a technology we use in our office all the time. After a continuing education course, I never plan on coming back with a massive textbook full of notes, but if I walk away with one piece of information that’s able to help my patients, I call it a win.

teaching the course are really jazzed about being there. It was really cool to talk with people from other offices around the country and hear how they’re using braces-free orthodontics to help their patients. Our goal was to come back home with new ways to use this technology better. Now, I know what you’re waiting for. What kind of wild adventures did we get into in Las Vegas? To be honest, my biggest adventure was staying up until 11 p.m. to attend the dinner with everyone. That’s a good two hours past my bedtime! I’m not what you’d call a “Vegas kind of guy.” My team has
said that if we ever went out on the town together, they’d drop me off at a museum first and pick me up when they were done. I have no complaints with this plan, so you’ll understand why I didn’t hang around the tables after the course was done. I left on Friday night because that Saturday was my birthday, and I wanted to be home for the one day everyone in my house is forced to be nice to me (not that my family isn’t always nice to me, of course). However, the rest of the team stuck around for a few extra days and did get to enjoy a real Vegas weekend. They walked the strip, hit the slots,
Being required to attend more school after you’ve already spent around two decades learning isn’t everyone’s idea of fun, but I enjoy it. I love everything about being a dentist, from working with patients to learning something new about Invisalign. I don’t know what I’d do if I weren’t a dentist. It’s what gets me up and going in the morning. Being a dentist is who I am, and I enjoy every moment.
