Austin Powers impersonator

No, this is not Mike Myers. It’s the “Austin Powers impersonator,” and I’ve run into this character on the exhibit hall floor at many dental conventions over the years.

He is hired by Millennium Dental Technologies, a company that manufactures laser equipment for use by dentists, to help draw attention to the company booth. He does this in a fun, lighthearted way.

His name is Richard Halpern, and you can learn more about him at his Facebook page. Also check out my interview with Richard that I wrote recently for Dental Tribune.

The latest issue of roots magazine includes my interview with the president of the AAE

I recently had the opportunity to interview Dr. Robert S. Roda, the incoming president of the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), during the association’s annual session, held recently in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Roda is a practicing endodontist in Arizona and an educator. My interview with him is published in the latest issue of roots magazine, shown below. The interview with Dr. Roda is also on the Dental Tribune website — direct link here.

The dramatic cover photograph is by Dr. Craig Barrington of Texas.
