Welcome to the 2018 – 2019 Atlantic Coast Dental Research Clinic Educational Experience. We have a great line up of dental courses covering a diverse range of subjects all taught by experts in their field. The clinic is a very unique educational environment providing both hands on and didactic education. What makes our clinic special (and much different from lectures or dental school) is that all of the students are practicing dentists with a wealth of experience. This allows for bilateral learning, improving the experience for both student and instructor. With the informal atmosphere, instructors and students are able to share ideas and discuss concepts in great detail and then explore them chair side in the clinic.
A secondary benefit of the clinic is the development of camaraderie, a chance to interact with your fellow professionals. For those of us who practice as solo practitioners, it is easy to get immersed in the day to day operation of the office and it is easy to become isolated. It’s wonderful to be able to exchange ideas and help out our fellow practitioners.
One of my goals this year is to increase membership. Most doctors who have taken classes at the clinic have found great value in the experience and continue to return every year to take a new class and increase their knowledge or retake a class as a refresher. For those of you who know a dentist who is new to the field of dentistry, please be an advocate for the Research Clinic and try to get your colleagues interested in continuing education. A long time ago, I earned my pilots certificate and after I had passed the flight (and final) portion of the exam, the examiner congratulated me on doing a nice job and asked what I had achieved. Proud of my accomplishment, I said I had earned a private pilots license. He said no, not really, you have earned a license to learn. He said everyday you fly, every flight you take, you should be able to reflect on the trip and have learned something new and valuable. If you don’t, stop flying. It was quite a shock but it is a lesson that hit home and I have tried to use it as a guiding principal in dentistry and life. The Research Clinic is a unique environment for continuing education, pass the word and let’s see if we can’t get a new generation of dentists involved with the Research Clinic
