While furthering our education is normally best suited for the classroom, books will always be an essential piece of continuous learning. Whether we are learning about the timeless pillars of dentistry or the keys to finding the perfect balance in our personal lives, these resources have helped guide us to be the best we can be.
Having a unified practice vision is essential for implementing complete dentistry. As doctors, we need to have a clear picture or vision of the type of practice we want to have.

Are you screening and treating breathing and airway issues predictably?
Have you ever come back from a course all excited about everything that you've learned, only to find out that your staff really isn’t all that much excited about it? I want to give you a quick tip today so that you could avoid having this problem after the next course that you come to.
The Dawson Academy has been teaching for decades the importance of understanding occlusion in order to provide patients with predictable, functional, and long-lasting care.
