St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) July 21, 2011
The Dawson Academy recently announced a new addition to their faculty, Dr. Angie Gribble Hedlund, DMD. Hedlund joins 17 other faculty members who currently teach The Academy’s dental courses.
“I feel so privileged and blessed to have been asked to be a part of the Dawson Academy Faculty. I am really thrilled to be part of a team that helps to communicate the concepts of Complete Dentistry to other doctors,” revealed Hedlund.
Hedlund received her DMD from the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry in Augusta Georgia. She has also completed an ADA-accredited program in Advanced General Dentistry at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas. She practiced with Goldstein, Garber & Salama for 16 years. She has practiced dentistry in Atlanta, Georgia since 1994 and has recently opened a private practice in North Atlanta.
Hedlund began taking courses in 2000 with The Dawson Academy. The Academy began to notice her kind spirit, approachable nature, and insatiable desire to provide complete care to her patients.
When discussing the courses Hedlund completed at The Dawson Academy she shared that, “the principles of Complete Dentistry have monumentally improved the way I practice dentistry. These concepts not only provide the most optimal health for the patient, but they do it in a way that is conservative, ethical, and in the best interest of the patient.”
Joan Forrest, CEO and President of The Dawson Academy said, “Dr. Hedlund's practice reflects her absolute commitment to the highest levels of patient care and her expertise at solving complex functional and esthetic problems. I know she will have a great impact on those dentists studying at The Dawson Academy.”
Hedlund is an active contributor to organized dentistry. This began when she served as the first female president of a Medical College of Georgia dental class. She is currently a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, the Hinman Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry, where she has completed over 1,500 hours of continuing education in dental studies. She has received her Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry and in July 2006, she became one of the youngest women ever to receive a Mastership in this Academy.
“We are delighted that Dr. Hedlund has joined the faculty of The Dawson Academy,” shares Forrest. “She is an outstanding clinician and possesses a true teacher's heart which is essential for being on our team,” explained Forrest.
Hedlund shared, “I am excited to bring my passion for combining function and esthetics in treatment planning to help aid other dentists in creating beautiful, healthy smiles for patients that last for years.”
