For the Love of Learning

It’s a Sunday morning in early March, 2015, and I’m sitting in a huge lecture auditorium with 30 dental colleagues at the Spear Education Center in Scottsdale, AZ, learning about advancements in digital dentistry, CAD/CAM, occlusion, and esthetics.  Not only is it a Sunday morning, I’m paying a fair amount of money to do this, […]
