Yes, we always keep up with continuing education courses to further our knowledge, because we always have to be on the top edge of dentistry, so to say. There are new things coming all the time… for example CBCT scanners which show us teeth and their problems in 3 dimensions, compared to previously only two dimensional views of traditional dental x-rays.
We have implants, that we do a lot of, we restore missing teeth thereby restoring the function and the smile of the patient, and it is a very rewarding experience.
Working with Dr Anderkvist
It’s fun. You never get bored, whenever you come to work. If you think it’s a quiet place where everybody behaves like in the army..oh no It’s a lot of laughter, fun, joy and great communication.
People who come to us say that you have a beautiful atmosphere. I am blessed to work with Dr. Anderkvist. In all the years that we have worked together, I have never felt rushed in any treatment that I needed to do for our patients. As you know, endodontic procedures take time. It’s very hard to predict how long a procedure will take, that is why I really appreciate the patience that he has. It’s a pleasure to work with Dr. Anderkvist.
