My coverage of the 2017 endodontic conference in New Orleans

Here are a few pages from the June 2017 issue of Endo Tribune, which includes my write-up and photographs from AAE17, the annual session of the American Association of Endodontists, held earlier this year in New Orleans. My article about AAE17 is published on the Dental Tribune website — direct link here.

While at the event, I had the opportunity to interview Dr. Anne Koch and attend one of her lectures, in which she talked openly about undergoing a gender transition, which included gender confirmation surgery. My interview with Dr. Koch is published on the Dental Tribune website — direct link here.

I also interviewed Dr. Peter A. Morgan, president of the Foundation for Endodontics, about that organization’s recent volunteer outreach to provide dental care to residents of Treasure Beach, Jamaica. A direct link to that article is here.

The General Session featured a political discussion with local residents James Carville and Mary Matalin (pictured in the featured image above).

‘Explore New York’ article for Dental Tribune

For this year’s “today” show daily, published by Dental Tribune on-site at the Greater New York Dental Meeting, I wrote an article for out-of-towners about what they can do for fun during their visit to the big city.

The meeting, which is an annual event in the dental industry, started just after Thanksgiving. I was the designated exhibit hall photographer for Dental Tribune, taking pictures at many of the company booths during the event. On one of the days I also covered a breakfast hosted by Henry Schein Dental, a company that is making a big push into digital technology.

My articles are directly below. If you click they will open bigger:

The American Dental Association meets in Washington

Last week for work, I was in the nation’s capital for the annual session of the American Dental Association, held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Dental Tribune published three issues of “today,” our at-show daily newspaper, which we put together live on site.

One of my assignments was to cover the educational offerings. Here is my article, which appeared on pages 1 and 3 of the third and final day’s paper. I also took the pictures. If you click on the images they will open bigger:

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.

San Antonio for work

I recently got back from a work trip to San Antonio. The American Dental Association was holding its annual session there, and I was on site to help cover the event for Dental Tribune.

We published three issues of our at-show newspaper. I conducted interviews on site with executives from Henry Schein Dental and attended a press briefing presented by the Boston University dental school and Sirona Dental.

My articles were published in print, as well as on the Dental Tribune website — links here and here.

I also photographed many of the exhibitors at the event:

On the way to and from the convention center each day, we passed by the Alamo! I was able to take pictures in both daytime and at night:
