Our very own Carla Frey has been working on her “side job” lately – speaking to other dental professionals in the area of implant dentistry. We are very proud of the steps she has taken to further her education and her goal of inspiring others. It was a long road for her, but very well worth it. She tells about it here, in her own words:
I am devoted to ongoing education and personal development, to ultimately educate, motivate, and inspire dental professionals to provide our patients with missing teeth, a better solution and better quality of life.
My passion for education has always driven me forward to seek further knowledge. I found a niche with an organization devoted to international education in the area of implant dentistry, and became a member of ADIA/ICOI. I recently achieved my “international speaker” status after speaking in Toronto, Canada!
On Sept. 21 2012, I was inducted into Fellowship with the ADIA (Association of Dental Implant Auxiliaries), a component society of ICOI (International Congress of Oral Implantology) at the World Congress meeting in Orlando, FL.
This achievement was realized upon completion of a three year process, to include ongoing membership, certification in 4 areas of study, over 170 hours in focused continuing education, presentation of lectures, and letters of recommendation.
I am sincerely grateful to Dr. Middleton for his unwavering support, and to the team of talented ladies I have the privilege to work with! I continue to be inspired by my professional peers and mentors. I have been forever touched by the patients we serve.
