GREAT NECK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2013) - Great Neck and Mid-Island Dental Associates is comprised of New York dentists and medical professionals that are skilled in a wide variety of specialties. One of the practice's founding partners, Dr. Steven Dallal, recently attended the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry's 29th annual scientific session in Seattle, Washington.
Over 2,000 medical professionals attended this year's scientific session sponsored by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). The conference included hands-on workshops, lectures, and an exhibition of the newest dental products. Dr. Dallal looks forward to events such as the AACD's scientific session to learn about the latest innovations the field has to offer. He has been attending the AACD's annual conference for 23 years.
According to AACD President Jack Ringer, "What sets AACD's meetings apart from other dental meetings is the high level of learning. Our members are among the most progressive and the most committed to esthetic excellence, so we offer them courses that challenge their thinking about dentistry, encouraging them to be even better at what they do."
As an experienced cosmetic dentist in Long Island, Dr. Dallal believes that it is vital for dental professionals to attend workshops like the ones offered by the AACD so that they can remain up-to-date on the most recent studies, clinical trials, and evolving technology. "Dentistry is ever-changing," says Dr. Dallal. For Dr. Dallal, learning does not stop once one finishes a residency program. He contends that a dentist striving to be a leader in the field must embrace learning as a lifelong commitment.
At the AACD, Dr. Dallal attended courses and workshops on such topics as:
- Esthetics and treatment planning
- Treatment diagnosis
- Interior aesthetics and the placement of dental implants
Dr. Dallal notes that the hands-on courses at the conference are particularly useful because he is able to work directly with new materials in an environment of highly trained peers. The annual AACD conference also allows Dr. Dallal to learn from some of the best instructors in the United States and from across the world. Dr. Dallal says this type of experience allows him to communicate with his patients more confidently, knowing that his understanding of advanced techniques and treatment options is always current.
Dr. Dallal has a history of involvement with the AACD. In addition to serving the role of Examiner for the AACD board certification program, Dr. Dallal has been recognized as "Best in Show" by the organization, receiving the AACD Award of Excellence. Through his active engagement with the AACD and his commitment to furthering his education, Dr. Dallal hopes to continue to offer the latest dental techniques and technologies to his New York dentistry patients.
