   Continuing My Education:

 I frequently attend courses to stay up-to-date with current technologies.

My recent focus is helping patients with sleep breathing problems. Sleep apnea is a serious medical problem that needs to be discovered in patients and treated. My office offers complimentary screening test for this serious  health problem.

Dental Sleep Masters seminars in July, August , September  and October of 2014.

American Association of Dental Sleep Medicine Annual conference May 2013

  February  2013- Attended a 2 day orthodontic seminar by Dr. Michael Williams (an orthodontic specialist with multiple patents on advanced othodontic appliances).

  Febuary 2013- Sleep Group Solutions - Seminar on incorporating dental-medical care to identify sleep disturbed breathing patients so they can become informed about this disease and it problems. 

 

In April 2012,  I attended a mini-seminar on  "Advances in Periodontal  care". A special thanks to Dr. Godat, a periodontal specialist, for his presentation at my office on  the new technology and services he offers.  He uses a periodontal surgical laser. This is a quantum leap over traditional "gum  surgery". He also presented information how he helps his patients have better dental health.  

 On a quarterly basis I attend The Dental Implant Aesthetic Center [ D.I.A.C. ] Study club meetings.  These are seminars on advances in implants presented by Dr. Darren Williams, Oral surgeon,  Dr. Carl Schulter, prosthodontic specialist,  and other speakers who are considered "experts " in their field. I believe that my efforts at staying "up to date" with new technology and advances in dental helath care services gives my patients better choices and the opprotunity for better dental health and asethics.

 My special interest is  orthodontic treatment, Invisalign, sleep apnea, and headaches/facial pain triggered by bite related problems.

On a personal note:

  I enjoying reading a variety of books; fiction, non-fiction, and  technical information. You may "catch me" exercising at Lifetime Fitness or jogging around Collierville high school. I also enjoy the greenways of Germantown and Collierville. Shelby Farms is a great outdoors area that I enjoy a lot. I also like to fish (catch- sometimes and release always) at local areas, just to get outdooors.

I am a long-time resident of Collierville and  I am proud to be a member of this community.

Have a great day,

Steve Thompson DDS
