Dental Slang is traveling all the way to New Zealand to talk to Dr. Andrea Shepperson — digitally, of course.
Dr. Shepperson is a dentist and educator who has spent much of her career building an international family of dentists. When she took a year off from school to travel the world, who would have guessed she’d create a network of dentists and mentors from all over the globe!
Digital dentistry is a big part of Dr. Shepperson’s practice. She describes her dream digital dental office for us, and walks us through the digital tools and new technology she is using in her office right now to help patients battle tooth erosion.
