Sep 18, 2015 /prREACH/ -- Kelowna, BC August 2015 - Dr. Andrew Macdonnell, a Kelowna dentist, was recently awarded the distinguished status Mentor at the Kois Center in Seattle, WA an Academy of General Dentistry approved didactic and clinical program offering the latest advances in esthetics, implant and restorative dentistry. The “Mentor” designation requires completion not only completion not only of a nine-course dental education curriculum but also, also successful completion of both a written examination and a clinical skills assessment. Requiring over 200 hours of continuing education encompassing all facets of clinical care including gums, teeth, bite problems, cosmetic and implant dentistry, it is certainly an impressive achievement.
“Becoming a Mentor has been a huge growth experience both personally and professionally.” exclaimed Dr. Macdonnell. “The time and effort that has been invested in training is really paying off. The dedication of time and knowledge received from all of the like-minded dentists offered during the Kois training was so impressive that it made one want to do the same for others. At the Advance Dental Group, not only can they identify disease processes in four key areas of oral health, but also provide treatment plans that lower patients risk to oral disease saving them pain, time and money over their entire life.”
Dr. Macdonnell has always been passionate about dentistry and staying up to date with the latest technology and current techniques. Being a Mentor at the Kois Center has allowed him the ability to stay current by attending the Kois Center’s Annual Symposium in which updates on new and changing techniques are provided. He states that the evidence-based approach to dentistry, taught by Dr. John C. Kois, D.M.D., M.S.D., at the Center allows him to decipher fact from fiction when it comes to new technology and techniques. This enables him to utilize only safe materials and the most effective techniques possible for his patients.
