Beautiful Colorado Springs is home to many great dentists. Among them are the elite few who have received the honor of being recognized as a "Top Dentist" by the Consumers Research Council of America. We see the awards proudly displayed in their offices or their names listed within the magazines.

Living in Southern California has its advantages. One of them is that I’m close to the California Dental Association’s (CDA) bi-annual meetings. The CDA holds two meeting each year.

Last year at the CDA they had almost 100 new products or companies showing for the first time at the CDA meeting in San Francisco. This year at the Anaheim meeting they show 75…Continue

Heaven knows that you all would probably wince at some of my viewing choices.
But I would be remiss if I didn't…Continue
