QA & Alexis Day Along with practicing Dentistry since 1972 and Periodontics since 1979, you have been the Clinical Professor and Course Director at USC School of Dentistry for thirty-eight years, among many other achievements. You are known for your unique blend of didactic and clinical expertise. How has this proficiency influenced your work? Dr. Drury It all works together. I teach the current periodontal literature course to the periodontal residents at USC. Together we read and discuss the scientific literature. I can bring this knowledge back to my office and apply it to the care of my patients. I perform periodontal therapy that is based not only on my experience, but the strength of the scientific evidence we have and not on hearsay, emotion, or anecdotal information.
