3 Continuing Education Resources for Dentists

Thanks to factors like technology, many industries continually evolve. As a result, operations, techniques and processes are improved and the beneficiary is usually the end user as well as a company’s bottom line. The dental industry is no exception to this evolution. Tooth extractions are less painful, dental surgery is less stressful and teeth-straightening is less embarrassing due to the technical evolution of dental procedures. With the continual improvements, for the dental professional who wants to remain on the cutting edge, continuing education is a must.

Here are three continuing education resources for dentists.


Professional journals, including dentistry journals, are made up of collections of articles written by professional members of a given industry that are based on research. Many times, articles are authored by more than one professional and often share information on important findings. These articles serve as a great continuing education resource especially when the article topic is in line with a feat you may be trying to accomplish, too. Articles found in these journals are also solid reference material that can be used in the future when a professional incurs a similar situation.


Traditionally, continuing education courses take place in a classroom over a period of time. In most cities, these courses can be taken at the local community college, but when time does not permit or when the desired course material isn’t being covered, online continuing education courses are now widely available. These online courses are offered by trusted professional associations and are accredited. They tend to cover the latest innovations and if you have any questions or concerns, they will be addressed. Online courses have built-in pluses like not having to travel to a campus and the ability to go over the material around your work schedule.

Annual Meetings and Conventions

Annual meetings and conventions held by an industry’s professional association(s) are great networking opportunities. They are also a great continuing education resource. During these events, on-site continuing education classes are usually offered on topics considered to be most important to attendees. Papers and research are presented while exhibitions are also held. Now, with social media, sharing the learned information has become another bonus that those who couldn’t attend appreciate.

Professionals who want to remain on the cutting edge of their industry’s latest trends can do so through continuing education with journals, courses and conventions.

I am born naturally tan

It is not officially summer yet I am tan already. I am born naturally as I am Filipino. When days are warm, my family always stay outside hanging out by the pool or by the pond. This is where my family gets tan as well. One thing about being naturally tan, with few minutes staying outside and it is sunny, I get tan so easily. My skin is a bit lighter during the winter which I liked. I know the lightness of my skin will not stay long and being natural tan comes out.

Born naturally tan.

I still apply the sun block lotion despite being tan. The sun rays hurt my skin too. I do apply moisturizer as well. Even at work, the women asks me why I am so tan already. Even one woman in the bank, asks me and my husband if we just came from vacation because we both look tan. I wish we were in vacation but just spend by the pool and enjoy the sun outside. Being naturally tan saves you money to go to a tanning salon.

1. Change your diet

You might be working out all the time. However, you have been unable to lose as much weight as you want. If this is the case, there is a good chance that the food you are eating is holding you back and sabotaging your diet. You need to take a close look at the amount of carbs and sugary foods you are consuming. You should also start to count calories. Keep track of what you eat by keeping a food journal. You may be surprised at how much food you are eating on a daily basis.

2. Take a dietary supplement

Dietary supplements have helped millions of people to achieve their weight loss goals. That having been said, they should not be used as a magic bullet. A person still must eat a sensible diet while he or she is taking a CLA dietary supplement in order for it to have the greatest impact.

3. Start a workout routine

Working out does not necessarily mean that you need to join a gym. Gyms can often be too expensive for many people to afford. However, it is important to get some form of exercise on a regular basis. Doing something as simple as riding a bike or taking a walk three times each week would greatly improve your health and allow you to lose some weight. The most important thing is to get your heart pumping. However, you must not overdo it. People who have not exercised in a long time need to start slowly and gradually increase the amount of exercise they do. This will help to prevent injuries or exhaustion.
