The Doctors Keeping Up With Continuing Education

Dentistry is an ever changing profession.  It seems like every day new information is published on updated clinical techniques and procedures.  Additionally research is only getting stronger, correlating the relationship between dental health and overall systemic health.  Dr. Alter and Dr. Brown are aware of these ever changing trends in the field of dentistry.  For that reason they both partake in over 30 hours of continuing education programs over the course of the year.  Dentist's Keeping Up (DKU) is a program sponsored by The Dental Society of Delaware and Chester Counties, in conjunction with The Pennsylvania Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.  Listed below are the upcoming, as well as some of the past courses that our doctors have completed.  These courses allow our doctors to deliver the best quality of care and most up to date information to our patients.
