I hope you will take a few minutes to read about the Pattison Institute and our videos. There are numerous new short video clips that you can view to get a better idea of the content and quality of our longer instructional videos. Look at the lists under “Videos” to see all of the lessons that are available.
Since retiring as Editor-In-Chief of Dimensions of Dental Hygiene, I have not been writing my regular editorial page so I have really missed connecting with you. Now, I hope you will read my Blogs so we can catch up on all that I have been doing during the past year as the Co-Director of the Pattison Institute.
In 2013, my younger son, Andrew, and I traveled to 14 states and visited 48 schools to introduce faculty members to the features and advantages of teaching with the Pattison Institute videos. During these long road trips we met so many wonderful dental hygiene faculty members, saw a lot of this great country and ate our way through all of those states. I gained ten pounds that I am still trying to lose.
Forty dental and dental hygiene schools are now using our videos. I have given hands on in-service courses to enhance faculty calibration at eight schools this year. During 2014, I hope to present hands-on faculty courses for as many of the schools using our videos as possible. I am also planning to present four hands on courses this year for practitioners in the U.S. and Canada.
Keep checking this website for Upcoming Live Courses to see if I will be coming soon to your area. I would love to meet you and work with you personally on your advanced periodontal instrumentation techniques. In the meantime, I hope you will subscribe and become a member so you can benefit from watching the videos until I can see you in one of my live courses.
