Out and about in San Francisco

Dr Stephen Murray takes a look at San Francisco, the venue for this year's AAO meeting

If you're going to San Francisco...

I tend to get wiped out by jet lag, so if I am travelling any distance for a conference or course, I try and get in a day or two beforehand to get on local time so that I can get the best out of the event. Since the American Association of Orthodontists 2015 meeting is in a city with an 8 hour time difference, I took a bit of time out to get used to things and had a look around the city.

The most famous things there are probably The Golden Gate bridge and Alcatraz, but it is also the location for many famous ...

AAO 2015 in San Francisco

Dr Stephen Murray and his team headed to San Francisco for AAO 2015

AAO at San Francisco 2015

The American Association of Orthodontists move their conference around the USA and this year it was in San Francisco. When I was a kid, there was a TV show called The Streets of San Francisco which is where I heard of it first. I remember finding it on my light up globe of the world bedside light, and noticing it was "near" Los Angeles which was one of the other cities I knew in American, but not very near New York or Washington.

The conference was at the San Francisco Moscone Center. If you ...

IDA Meeting 2015

Dr Stephen Murray of Swords Orthodontics goes to the Irish Dental Association's 2015 annual meeting

I am just back from the 2015 Irish Dental Association's annual conference. This year it was in Cork, and the theme was Evidence Based Dentistry - hence the event title "Evidentaly" which has mildly irritated me since I saw it first, as it is neither "Evidently" or "Evidentally" - neither a real word or a clever pun - but it does make you think when you notice something, and that was what the conference was all about. In any case, it was a great conference with some super lecturers. 

There was a great lecture about the connection between gum inflammation and overall health, including heart disease, digestive disorders and mental deterioration. ...

Orthodontics Waiting Lists in Ireland Increased

Hi there, haven't blogged in ages for Swords Orthodontics, but we haven't been idle! Dr Stephen Murray is now on the council of the Orthodontics Society of Ireland (he's the secretary) and has been at meetings and organising conference calls for them and for the Smile Revolution, who you'll be hearing more about next month.

We're still buzzing from our win at the Irish Dentistry Awards where we got the prize for Dublin Practice of the Year - apparently we were in the dental magazine, but our copy hasn't arrived here in Swords yet so Dr Murray was getting congratulations from other dentists he knows but didn't know how they knew.

Anyway, ...

Earlier, we'd been highly commended as Irish Dentistry's Best Employer but nothing had prepared us for the announcement that we'd won this massive award. 

Swords Orthodontics were at the event and as usual all dressed up for ...
