2016 Colorado Springs Style Top Dentist

Dr. Albers Named a 2016 Top Dentist in Colorado Springs

Every year, Colorado Springs Style Magazine compiles a list of top dentists in Colorado Springs.  Dr. Albers is honored to be recognized again this year as a  2016 Top Dentist.  The magazine partners with the Colorado Springs Dental Society and a marketing firm to survey members of the Dental Society.  Dr. Albers appreciates being recognized by his peers for the quality of his dental work.  He spends many hours each year participating in multiple study groups, allowing him to keep abreast of the latest techniques in dentistry, and to work on complex cases with other study club members.  These experiences impact the quality of care he is able to provide to patients, which is apparent to other dental providers in the community.

You can find the complete list of top dentists in the 2016 May/June edition of Colorado Springs Style Magazine.  A biography for Dr. Albers can be found at p. 51 of the magazine.

We Recommend Electric Toothbrushes

Long time patients know that we are advocates of using electric toothbrushes.  Research shows that people using a regular toothbrush will spend less than 40 seconds brushing their teeth, while most electric toothbrushes have timers in the 2 minute range.  Electric toothbrushes also guard against over-brushing, the overly vigorous brushing of teeth, as the toothbrushes do all the work.  While there are a number of different brands and types of electric toothbrushes, we have recently starting carrying one of the two top brands.  If you aren’t already using an electric toothbrush, we highly recommend that you visit with our staff at your next visit about the pros and cons of using them.

These pictures are from the 2016 Chicago Dental Conferences I  attended in February, including the Academy of Operative Dentistry and The American Academy of Restorative Dentistry meetings. These annual meetings, two days each, are filled with lectures, table clinics, and opportunities to visit with dental professionals from across the country and abroad. I participate in two study groups, one made up of local dentists, and one of dentists from several different states. The group shot shows members of the local group who traveled to Chicago. Continuing dental education is important to all of us.

Dental Convention – 2016 Rocky Mountain Mid-Winter Dental Convention

2016 Mid-Winter Dental Convention

Attending the Rocky Mountain Dental Convention is something my staff and I try to do each year.  This year’s convention, affectionately known as the 2016 Mid-Winter Dental Convention, took place last Thursday and Friday in Denver.  We were fortunate that the entire staff was able to attend.  The convention draws dental professionals from all over the state as well as from neighboring states.  It provides opportunities to attend lectures, view exhibits of the latest products and equipment, and to network with other providers.  We have recently added a diode laser to our array of treatment options.  One of the best sessions my hygienists and I  attended was an informative lecture on the use of lasers for periodontal treatment.   It was a fun and productive two days for everyone.

Welcome, Judy!
