M . Kurt Williams DDS
When I was growing up, my dad repeatedly told me, “a job worth doing, is worth doing right.” As a dentist, today this advice remains ever-present and fundamentally impacts how I treat each patient. Each person I see in my chair presents a unique situation and it is my duty to give them the best diagnosis and treatment I possibly can.
So, what is my approach to accomplish this? First I need to have the tools. It begins with education and my excellent training in dental school from Virginia Commonwealth University is only the tip of the iceberg. I have dedicated myself to a rigorous continuing education schedule averaging over 100 hours per year. I have gained advanced training in implant placement and restoration, dental patient sedation and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder treatment to name just a part of my recent curriculum. Additionally, I spend a great amount of my off-time reading journals, discussing dentistry with my colleagues and participating in on-line dental discussion groups.
As important as knowledge and skill are in diagnosis and treatment, it is absolutely essential that they are complemented by great focus, effort and enthusiasm. I care a great deal about my patients and the only way I can sleep at night is if I have a satisfied mind from knowing that I did indeed give my best effort.
