This February, Dr. Auvenshine will be attending the Scientific Meeting of the American Equilibration Society in Chicago, and he’s proud to announce that his third year resident Dr. Nathan Pettit has been selected to make a poster presentation during the event. The 59th annual meeting features two days full of panels, discussions and exhibitions that address the needs to today’s dental patients.
Dr. Pettit has been working with Dr. Auvenshine during his residency at the V.A. Hospital. While there, he has worked with other graduate students conducting research on the Hyoid bone under Dr. Auvenshine's direction. With the help of Dr. Auvenshine acting as director, Dr. Pettit has made this research the subject of his Master’s thesis. In addition, Dr. Auvenshine will be writing three scientific papers on the work that has been done to date.
Dr. Pettit will present at the AES meeting on February 19, 2014 while Dr. Auvenshine meets with his co-chair for the 2017 program to begin planning for the event.
