Dr. Lynn Carlisle's Wonderful Web Site Resource
Dentist, author, historian of dentistry's pivot period, Past President of the Bob Barkley Foundation and my dear friend, Lynn Carlisle,DDS, has created an indispensable resource for those of us who lived the health centered, relationship based revolution in dentistry of the 70's and 80's. More importantly he has provided a resource and forum for all those younger dentists who understand that it is first the primacy of the relationship between doctor and the person we call the patient, that provides the most powerful pathway to the health and well being of both. I strongly encourage you to visit this rich site and become a subscriber. You'll be glad you did!
The Dawson Center for the Advancement of Dentistry, St. Petersburg, FL
Founded in 1979, the Dawson Center is dedicated to teaching the principles and skills necessary for the successful practice of complete, quality, predictable dentistry with primary concentration on occlusion and the TMJ. I have learned more than I can possibly recount through the courses and gifted teaching of Dr. Pete Dawson ...beginning as early as 1972. Management of the occlusal/functional aspects learned and applied from Dr. Dawson's principles have allowed cases I treated in the 70's to endure beautifully for more than 35 years. Beginning in 2006 we had the privilege of leading the Dawson Center in Applied Strategic Planning. Their current offering of technical courses and instructors are excellent, but only the beginning of what we believe can be one of the finest post graduate dental education institutions in the world. If you haven't taken training there do so soon!
Open Sky Wilderness Therapy, Durango, CO
We highly recommend - Open Sky’s holistic wilderness treatment program that integrates the best of traditional clinical modalities, natureopathy, and wilderness therapy. Work with teenagers ages 13-17 and young adults ages 18-28 on a wide range of presenting issues, including drug and alcohol abuse, depression, ADD, low self esteem, anxiety, and anger management. The Open Sky treatment approach is client-centered and evidence-based. With over 70 years of collective experience in the fields of wilderness therapy and holistic medicine, the Open Sky leadership team presents students and families with a comprehensive treatment program that engages the healing power of nature. My son Danny works with OSWT and I know its founder/CEO Aaron Fernandes - both took our ASP Series a few years ago.
Author of five best selling books, speaker and workshop leader, who greatly impacted me around issues of family systems and emotional intelligence.
Coburn Dental Systems, 21st Century Erogonomic Treatment Rooms for the Tier IV Practice.
Dr. Don Coburn a fine restorative dentist, from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, has long been recognized as one of the pioneers of ergonomically sound, low physical stress treatment delivery. He was the creator of the reknown Cox Systems. After retiring from clinical practice, Don knew he could improve on his Cox design. After two years of work he has created the "Danse System." I am privileged to work in one of his first installations in the US, here in Austin. It is the most exceptional treatment room I've ever experienced. If your focus is comprehensive care, I urge you to visit with the folks at Coburn Designs.
