As an instructor and lecturer to colleagues in the dental field, especially those interested in implantology, my perspective has been that of a general dentist who understands the struggle of working 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. five or six days per week and having to go out of your way to gain extra training and knowledge for specialty procedures. I now have the luxury of being a practicing general dentist of 15 years who also happens to be completing his first year of a graduate periodontics residency. My current experiences have inspired what I explore in this article.

Description of Speaker:
Dr. LeRoy Horton earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Pacific Lutheran University in 2003 and attained his DDS from the University of Washington School of Dentistry in 2007. Having always been fascinated with dental implants, Horton pursued advanced training over the years, attaining fellowships and completing master’s courses, and eventually earned his board certification as a diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantology. He is a graduate periodontics resident at Oregon Health Sciences University and is a nationally recognized AGD instructor.
