Continuing Education

Our doctors work extremely hard to advance their education to provide Willow Creek Dental patients with innovative, high quality dentistry. Below are a few of the courses they have attended.

  • Dr. Mary Blakeley recently completed a mini-residency TMD program with Dr. Jay Gerber at The Center for Occlusal Studies in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Dr. Gerber, a leader in modern occlusal studies for over 25 years, offers the comprehensive TMD program to dentists who are passionate about helping patients with TMJ Disorder. The program included appliance construction, adjustment, electro-diagnostics, imaging and case studies. In addition to her trips to West Virginia, Dr. Blakeley completed a course for the K-7 occlusal evaluation system at the renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies earlier this year.
  • Dr. Kylee Brightside just returned from a trip to Boston, Massachusetts where she attended a 3-day course in advanced bone grafting and implant placement. The innovative course involved six live surgeries and a cadaver lab for the highest level of training. Dr. Brightside also continues with her passion for treating head and neck cancer patients and spent a weekend in March attending courses at the Specialty Care Dentistry Association’s annual convention. The courses focused on special considerations for patients with head and neck cancer, geriatrics and medically compromised patients.
  • Dr. Amanda Campbell has also traveled for her continuing education, most recently to Scottsdale, Arizona to participate in a Cone Beam Imaging & Implant Treatment Planning course through Sirona Dental. Prior to that, she attended an All-on-Four implant course through the Metropolitan Denver Dental Society that included a live surgery and immediate provisionalization.
