  • 2020 Update

    Per a request from Greg to update my status. What’s the lifestyle like? Still fantastic. I have been busier than the past two years. I think I have finally met my cap on how much work I can do in a day. Are you busy enough to work full time? I am much busier. In […]

  • 2018 Update

    Per a request from Dr E to update my status. No real changes since last year. In fact, I probably can copy and paste the previous update post and it would be true. To keep it similar I’m keeping the same headers. What’s the lifestyle like? Fantastic. Even busier than last year but I’m still […]

  • My 2017 Update

    Per a request from Gary to update my status. Not a huge amount has changed. My practice is still radiology full time and seeing patients one day a week. I would like to split this post into sections of questions I get most commonly. These are not in any particular order.   What’s the lifestyle […]

  • New OMR Program

    A new oral and maxillofacial radiology program has just been announced at Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine. The program will begin July 1st, 2017. What does this mean? Typically this means that the school sees an increased demand for the field. If my personal experience hasn’t been convincing enough… this is basically a good sign. […]

  • A Year Later

    To update everyone on where I am. It’s been a year since getting my board certification and over two years since I started practicing (outside of residency). Easy to say, I love what I do. The lifestyle can’t be beaten. Really. In fact, there is nothing like being in total control of your own schedule. […]

  • Boards, Boards and No More Boards

    I am happy to announce that earlier last month I found out that I passed the boards.  Yes… it is a good feeling.  As of now I am officially a diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology. I am also practicing radiology and general dentistry and will continue to do so for […]

  • Post Boards

    I’m finally past the boards and what a great feeling it is.  Now all that is left is to play the waiting game.  The only feeling I get is that I wish I would have reviewed my anatomy more.  It was obvious to me that I haven’t gone over that stuff. The exam itself: I […]

  • Studying, studying and more lack of studying

    For some reason I can’t get myself to study or prep for the boards.  I guess it’s just one of those things where I have a mental block.  My understanding is that there is a pathophysiology exam and then a written portion with case interpretations and a verbal portion with case interpretations.  I do know […]

  • Boards Round 2

    It is that time again.  The boards are less than two months away and it is time for me to start getting nervous.  It is also time to slow down everything going on in my life and concentrate on that task ahead.  The boards are the last step in my career.  I am looking forward […]

  • OsiriX Dental Plugin

    If you are a Mac user and an OMR then you’ve probably tried to use OsiriX before to look at CBCT scans.  You’ve also probably noticed that it is missing some basic features that are really necessary for OMR and the dental field all together.  I’m pleased to find a new plugin has emerged for OsiriX that […]
