A Big Thank You to Practical Clinical Courses and to All of You!

 Saturday morning I was lucky enough to be able to present a lecture dedicated to my favorite technologies live from Provo, Utah.  It was part of Dr. Gordon Christensen's Practical Clinical Courses and I am truly honored to have able to provide the content.

Over the years I've been fortunate enough to have become friends with Dr. Christensen and I'm really grateful in his support for this course.  

However, I also want to let all of YOU know how appreciative I am of you who chose to login and join the fun!  We truly live in exciting times and technology  can really push things to greater and greater heights.

I remember in the early days of the Internet, a good friend of mine who lived in Phoenix and I spent most of an entire Saturday trying to hook up our webcams and be able to see and hear each other.  We were working with a Microsoft program called NetMeeting.  At the time it was one of the coolest things around... if you could get it to work.  Connection speeds at the time were dicey and the amount of bandwidth required was hard to support in those early days.  We finally did get things working to the point that we could "sort of" see and hear each other.  The video was jerky and the audio cut in and out, but we got it to work.

Fast forward to today and we think nothing of a Zoom or Microsoft Teams Meeting with high definition audio and 4K video.  Heck, we are doing this kind of stuff from our phones!

My point is, look at how far things have evolved!  We are in a digital world and the profession of dentistry has become a near digital profession.  There really isn't much that needs to be done in an analog fashion any more.  I'm grateful to those of you. who attend lectures I do and I'm also grateful for all of you who happen to make this blog so successful.  I'm honored to be able to help.
