Dr. Paul Schoenbeck's Presentation at the Navy

I was invited to “join the Navy” for the weekend of December 12th by Capt. David Hartzell, National Naval Medical Center (NNMC) and Naval Post-Graduate Dental School faculty member. Capt. Hartzell asked me to come to the school at Bethesda, MD to give a lecture and live demonstrations on CEREC (CEramic REConstruction).

I was the featured speaker for the Navy’s week-long Continuing Education Program. The course was a four- hour lecture and two hour lab class on the design of CEREC restorations. CEREC is a computerized, single-visit, porcelain tooth restoration system. I’ve made an effort over the years to advance modern dentistry and make high-tech dentistry available to local communities in the North Country through the use of CEREC at North Country Dental.  NCD has the rare distinction of being the only practice in Northern New Hampshire to have two CEREC machines. As a result, I’ve been able to make more people aware of this great technology.

Interest in the CEREC lecture was so great, the venue had to be moved from its original classroom setting at the dental school to Clark Auditorium, which accommodates a lot more people. Over seventy people came to hear my lecture. The original class was scheduled for only twenty.  From what I understand, being the featured speaker at the Naval Post-Graduate Dental School is a big deal. The audience was all military and some retired military dentists.

The National Naval Medical Center is one of the nation’s largest and most renowned military medical centers. The Naval Post-Graduate Dental School was started in 1923 as the Dental Department of the United States Naval Medical School, Washington, DC. It’s a component facility of the National Naval Dental Center and a part of the NNMC.

I also had the honor that weekend to be the mentor for the Naval Dental Study Club. The Club has existed since 1963 and meets one Saturday each month. The Study Club gives school the opportunity to share resources and information with their civilian counterparts.  They have retired plus four or five active civilian dentists who come to the Study Club because they have an interest in what the Club has to offer.

Back in April of 2009, I “served” with Capt. Hartzell aboard the USNS Comfort, as part of the largest humanitarian effort in the world. I was asked to train Navy dentists in the art and technique of CEREC,  and provided free dental care with otherContinuing Promise 2009 medical professionals to the residents of the Dominican Republic. It was an amazing experience. The Comfort, one of the two largest hospital ships in the world, was on a four-month humanitarian and civic assistance mission to Latin America and the Caribbean in support of Continuing Promise 2009.
