Even with temperatures in the red, we know a cooler time is ahead. North Texas Dentistry is excited to present the 2018 Southwest Dental Confer- ence Convention Issue. Dr. Brad Crump, this year’s Chairman, highlights what is new at this year’s conference, “Inspiring Success Through Knowledge”. While visit- ing the Exhibit Hall, please stop by Booth #430 to say hello and tell us about your practice or business. It is always fun to visit with our readers. Pediatric dentist, Dr. Melissa Rozas, is cel- ebrating her 20-year anniversary in private practice in Coppell and we are pleased to present her practice and team. Her ener- getic and enthusiastic approach to patient care is delightful. This is the third feature we have done with Dr. Rozas’s practice and it has been a pleasure each time. Seems like I have gotten older, but she hasn’t! Smiles in the Spotlight presents a case by OMS/Head & Neck surgeon, Dr. David Kang. The extensive treatment of a 55-year-old man who had a shotgun wound to the face is amazing. Follow the graphic steps of treatment and the use of microvas- cular free tissue transfer to improve his ap- pearance and quality of life. A variety of compelling editorial completes the issue. Practice Insight examines cul- tural and generational trends to consider in patient care, Employment News takes a look at recruiting during low unemploy- ment, and Money Matters discusses wealth building through DSOs. Enjoy these articles and much more! Don’t miss the Southwest Dental Confer- ence Special Booth Listing (pages 4 & 5) spotlighting the North Texas Dentistry advertisers who are exhibiting at this year’s conference.
