This past year the American Association of Oral Maxillofacial Surgeons, or AAOMS, held their annual meeting in Chicago, Illinois. As a yearly opportunity, Dr. Robert Guyette and Dr. Mark Beehner took several staff members to the event. This was the 100th anniversary of AAOMS and the staff had a wonderful opportunity to hear about the history of AAOMS and the doctors who have worked in the OMS specialty. Dr. Guyette, Dr. Beehner, and the staff members had the opportunity to explore new techniques and applications related to the procedures that relate to Dental Implants and Oral Maxillofacial Surgery.
Dr. Guyette and Dr. Beehner are committed to continuing education and growth as it relates to the Guyette Surgery Center. Our staff attended classes in anesthesia assistant skills, new procedures and techniques with Dental Implants and All-on-4 procedures, technology, leadership skills, communication and listening skills, and cyber security.
As an extra treat on this trip, our doctors and staff members had the opportunity to listen to the Keynote speaker for the event, General Colin Powell, who was the Secretary of State and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for the United States. General Powell’s discussion was centered on “Leadership Taking Charge”. He spoke of his experiences as a leader on the world stage and as an eyewitness to leadership in action. He talked about what it takes to “take charge” during times of great change. He discussed what it means to stay focused, take responsibility and to work hard to improve your life around you. All of our staff members came away from this special event with high praise for education that General Powell gave.
The physicians at Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery Center are committed to excellence in patient care and strive to make sure that our patients know that they are getting the very best in patient care when they work with Dr. Robert Guyette and Dr. Mark Beehner.
