From February 20 – 23, I attended Annual Meetings for the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry and the Academy of Operative Dentistry. These meetings provide opportunities to attend lectures and clinics, and to discuss current dental topics with dental professionals from around the country.
Welcome Back Sharon!
Reunion! Fourteen years ago, hygienist Sharon moved to Australia, and she’s now living in New Zealand. What fun to have a staff reunion dinner with Sharon, which included current and former staff members. Long time patients will recognize Michele, Lisa, Sharon, Susan, Lee Ann, Linda and Bonnie. We’ve been fortunate to have great staff serving our patients over the years.
2014 Rocky Mountain Dental Convention
This picture was taken at the 2014 Rocky Mountain Dental Convention with Jane, LeeAnn, and Michelle (Lisa not pictured). We spent two days attending continuing education classes and visiting vendor booths to see the latest in dental products. Dr. Albers attended lectures of nationally renowned speakers including Dr. Gordon Christensen (lecture on dental advancements in multiple areas including endodontics, crowns, implants, new materials, etc.) and Dr. Dennis Tarnow, (lecture on treatment planning for complex implant cases). This annual event is an important part of our commitment to patients to stay abreast of the latest trends and advancements in dentistry.
This blog has not been updated following the loss of Dr. Albers’ home in the Waldo Canyon fire. The family has rebuilt and moved back and now it’s time to resume blog posts. A big “Thank You” goes out to all of the staff and patients who’ve been so supportive this last year and a half.
Waldo Canyon Fire
Well, unfortunately, the Albers’ home is no more. For those who don’t know, we were in the path of the Waldo Canyon Fire. The fire exploded on June 26, 2012, and ended up destroying almost 350 homes. This photo is from the Denver Post website, taken as our family first arrived home to see the devastation. Family members and pets are fine, and many important papers and photographs were saved. We appreciate the outpouring of support from many of our wonderful patients. Because it was difficult to keep up with emails and phone calls, Carla started a blog to document this journey.
