Biography

My interests include Operative Dentistry, Dental Anatomy, Occlusion, and clinical research. I have been teaching dental students for 44 years and have mentored many research projects. In 1983 I was appointed to the Nebraska Board of Dental Examiners as the Creighton University representative and served as an active member on that Board for 13 years. I have been a dental licensure examiner for  35 years and have been involved in examine content and revision for licensure as a member of the Central Regional Dental Testing Service and The American Association of Dental Examiners.What I enjoy most is clincal teaching and my interaction with patients and students.in the General Dentistry clinic.In my years at Creighton I have participated in numerous clinical studies testing the efficacy of various dental materials resulting in a number of publications. I am proud of my work in identifying the causes and potential of tooth fractures.Observing the improvemnets in dental materials and delivery of dental care over the past forty years has been exciting and rewarding
