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.

Dr.Schoenbeck Gives CEREC Lecture at Tufts Dental School

October 14, 2009 Tufts Dental School

Dr. Schoenbeck was invited to speak at the prestigious  Tufts School of Dental Medicine in Boston MA. He gave an all day course to Dentists from the New England area on the use of the hi-tech CEREC system. The speaking engagement is part of the dental school’s continuing education program for dentists. The program provides courses to dentists so that they can keep up their educational requirements. All dentists need to continue their education at courses and meetings to keep their dental licenses active. Dentists often acquire their educational credits at large meetings or through programs like Tufts.

Dr. Schoenbeck has been a lecturer and author for many years. He has given lectures and provided clinical instruction in the U.S.A. as well as internationally in the Dominican Republic (see this blog entry). He is a consultant for dental companies and a trainer for Sirona (the company that makes the CEREC system).

Dr. Schoenbeck provides courses in CEREC technology, practice development, team building and various courses involving special techniques used in dentistry. The CEREC technology is a growing use of computers to make dental restorations like crowns. it makes porcelain restorations that are very accurate and made quicker than anything else available to dentists. These crowns are made in minutes and are very esthetic. more information can be seen at our website  : www.northcountrydental.com

 Especially rewarding at this presentation was the fact that Dr. Schoenbeck’s professor from his days as a student was attending his course. Dr. Nancy Arbree is one of the Directors of dental education at Tufts and she is the Associate Dean for Student Affairs. She has been, among many duties, the Director of Restorative Dentistry. She was his instructor in implants, bridges and crowns. Dr. Arbree attended the course to get the up to date information on the CEREC technology and how to best implement it into the dental practice. Dr. Schoenbeck was honored to have her attend and pleased to know that she enjoyed the course very much.
