There’s a saying from Newton D. Baker that sums up the importance of continuing education perfectly: “The man who graduates today and stops learning tomorrow is uneducated the day after.”
Never has this been truer than in today’s world of ever-evolving technology.
All dentists are required to take 25 hours of continuing education a year. For those with a passion for what they do, like Dr. Pappas, 25 hours a year isn’t nearly enough. Each month Dr. Pappas takes 10 to 20 hours of continued education, and by the end of the year, he always has well over 100 hours.
Why does he take continuing education so seriously?
His office uses a lot of advanced technology that is always changing and getting better. In order to offer patients the latest and greatest treatment options, Dr. Pappas and the entire staff devote hours a week learning and further developing skills so we can continue to grow with technology.
One way that Dr. Pappas continues his education is through Spear Education, located right here in Arizona. It’s one of the most respected sources of dental education in the nation and offers workshops, seminars, courses and study clubs.
Dr. Pappas started his own study club at Spear full of general dentists and specialists who are all focused on perfecting their art and becoming better at what they do.
