My Promotion at Dental Products Report

Over the years, I've had a great home for my writing and all the other fun publishing stuff at Dental Products Report Magazine.
 
It started at the ADA Annual Session in 1999 when I was approached about doing some articles for their sister publication Dental Practice & Finance.  I started out writing an occasional column for them, whenever they would call.
 
In the early 2000's I was offered the position of Technology Consultant with Dental Practice & Finance which allowed me to start editing & provide columns on a more regular basis.
 
However, terror struck when DP&F was discontinued and I was terrified I would be without a writing  home.  That terror was short lived as I was offered the opportunity to be Technology Columnist for Dental Products Report.  That position opened up a whole new chapter of my life as I was given a monthly column.
 
After a time as a columnist, I was asked to become DPR's Technology Editor where I was editing technology articles as well as continuing my own column which evolved into the Technology Evangelist column that I write to this day.
 
Now for the exciting part.  This week I was promoted from Technology Editor to Chief Dental Editor and given the lead over DPR's newly established Editorial Advisory Board.  Over the last 15 years I've been very proud and honored to be part of the DPR team and I've loved watching my role grow as more opportunities presented themselves.
 
I am truly honored and touched by the trust and faith put in me by the management team at Advanstar Dental Media.  I'm excited about what the future holds and I promise to continue to provide you the reader with the best  and most current info I can.
 
Lastly, I cannot thank you readers enough for your trust.  It is something I treasure and will continue to work hard to support.  Whether it is here on the blog or on the pages of Dental Products Report, I will give my all to make sure you get the best information I can deliver.
