Dynamic approach to continuing education

Ongoing collaboration between dentists, physicians to be topic of discussion at 2011 Brauman-Bell Alpha Omega Lectureship

When it comes to managing oral-systemic conditions, partnerships between dentists and physicians have been shown to improve overall patient-care outcomes. Learn how this trend is impacting multiple health care disciplines at the Nov. 8 Brauman-Bell Alpha Omega Lectureship, which will feature a panel of specialists from internal medicine, cardiology, blood and marrow transplant, radiation oncology and periodontics.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. John Wright, Regents Professor and chair of the college’s Department of Diagnostic Sciences (moderator);
  • Dr. Terry Rees, professor in the college’s Department of Periodontics and director of the Stomatology Center;
  • Dr. Dean Dimmitt, specialist in internal medicine for MedProvider, which serves Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas;
  • Dr. Richard Snyder, cardiologist at HeartPlace in Dallas;
  • Dr. Luis Piñeiro, director of the Marrow Processing Laboratory and Apheresis Lab at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas; and
  • Dr. Brennan Scott Cheek, radiation oncologist for Texas Oncology at Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center in Dallas.
The lectureship event begins with a 4:30 p.m. reception in Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry’s sixth floor lobby. The panel discussion — open to faculty, staff, students, alumni and the general public — will start at 5 p.m.

While 1-1/2 hours of dental continuing education are available for attending this event, a continuing education registration card must be received by Oct. 31. There is no cost to attend the lectureship or to receive CE credits.
