Thanks to Everyone at the Benco/Gendex Event in Minneapolis

Ah, the joys of travel.  This was a short trip.  I left KCI on Thursday at about 11:30 am bound for Minneapolis and was back in the Land of Oz on Friday morning at about 8:30 am.  I have some crazy "check in" times with airlines, but this trip literally had me checking in for my return flight from my kitchen before I even left for the KC airport!


However, the trip was well worth it.  The travel is always to sort of negative that comes with what I do.  It's meeting the people and  providing the education that really is the fun part of my "second job".  I had a chance to do an evening event over dinner for some doctors in Minneapolis on the "why's" behind 3D cone beam imaging and it was a great time.


I've been using this amazing technology in my office for about 5 years now and it has truly opened my eyes to some amazing things.  The ability to actually be able to see the patient in fully rendered 3D means you get more data about the case which allows you to provide more accurate and predictable treatment.  I once thought this technology would only be used in dental schools, but now with more affordable hardware and much more advanced training, this powerful tool is becoming more and more common al lover the US.


If you are a doctor who is treating, or interested in treating, more advanced cases, you really should take a look at what cone beam imaging can provide for you.  I'm routinely amazed at the amount of information that it provides to me and the ways it helps me provide the  highest level of care to my patients.


Thanks to all at the Minneapolis event for such a warm welcome and a fun evening!
