Extensive Post-Graduate Training
The dental industry is ever-changing. There are new technologies, procedures, equipment and information being introduced on a daily basis. That is why it is so important that your dentist or hygienist doesn’t stop learning once he or she graduates from college. It is important that they continue their training and education as long as they are practicing dentistry.
Tumwater Family Dentistry is fully committed to providing the Thurston County community with high quality dental care. The only way to do this is to go through extensive post graduate training, which is exactly what our dentist, hygienists, and assistants have done.
Recently, Dr. Downing has continued his extensive post graduate training by attending various lectures at The Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida, Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Cerec Doctors Mentor at the Scottsdale Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Dr. Downing takes what he learns at these post graduate training sessions and incorporates it into his dental practice at Tumwater Family Dentistry. Some of the most recent things he has incorporated into his practice include the use of Molar Media Mount iPad on-chair displays in the exam rooms, laser cavity detection, and switching to high tech digital x-ray technology.
Even the tools that are used in our dental practice are influenced by what is learned at these training sessions. Our patients will notice that we use digital impressions instead of the traditional trays and goop, as well as using high-tech tools like KaVo Electronic Handpieces.
Our doctor isn’t the only one to receive extensive post graduate training. All of our dental hygienists and assistants are encouraged to attend various post graduate training courses so they stay up to date on the latest advances that happen within the dental industry.
When you visit Tumwater Family Dentistry, you can rest easy knowing that everyone that takes care of you, from our hygienists to our doctor, stays updated on the latest industry trends by going through extensive post graduate training.
