Hola from Santo Domingo!

As sunny and beautiful as it was there, I wasn’t playing golf or sitting by the pool all day (unfortunately!). I was attending a SPEAR Education 3-day workshop which included lecture and hands-on components. We covered topics in diagnosis, examination, photography, treatment planning, and case discussion.

The purpose of the workshop was to help me enhance my skills to provide the best family dentistry ...
