from the publisher Dentistry HOUSTON Publisher | LuLu Stavinoha Photographer | Ray Bryant, Bryant Studios Contributing Writers | Tina Cauller, Marc Fowler, Todd Prigmore, Kyle Swan, Kyle Wallace Welcome to the Premier Issue of Houston Dentistry magazine! As publisher of North Texas Dentistry for over five years, I have been encouraged to expand my market… so here we go! Our goal will be to bring the latest news and information to the Houston dental community through feature cover stories, custom profiles, compelling editorial on a wide variety of topics and print advertising. Promoting non-profits and community dental events is one of my favorites. I encourage you to discover the many ways to participate! We are honored to present the dental practice transition firm Watson Brown as our premier cover story. Watson Brown specializes in practice appraisals and brokerage services for dentists at every stage of their professional careers. I have known this team of professionals for years and it was a pleasure to work with them again. Houston Dentistry magazine highlights intriguing case presentations in Smiles in the Spotlight. In this issue we share a case by Dr. Clark Giddings in conjunction with Kyle Swan, CDT, using an angulated screw channel option for implant treatment. The procedure is an example of teamwork between the doctor and a trusted and tal- ented laboratory. Check out the inside front cover for more information on presenting a case. There is no fee for inclusion in Smiles in the Spotlight. Custom Profiles are a valuable marketing tool to promote your business or service. Robert Zimbro, owner of National Target Mailing is this issue’s featured Profile. Robert is “the” dental postcard guy. He has great marketing ideas and delivers a consistently superb product.
