In addition to his DMD degree, he completed surgery and anesthesia internships at the University of Louisville.

The ADA is a professional membership organization that supports dentists through credentialing services, educational resources, and career opportunities. It offers various online courses for dentists pursuing continuing education too.

ADA continuing education courses cover many areas, such as clinical dentistry, practice management, and implantology. Implantology is a dentistry specialty focusing on teeth implantation following extractions or fractures.

The ADA offers a two-part implantology course titled All-Ceramic and Metal-Ceramic Restorations for Optimal Esthetics. Created by Dr. Charles Goodacre, the course examines the benefits and limitations of all-ceramic versus metal-ceramic crowns. Additionally, Dr. Goodacre addresses clinical aspects including tooth preparation, crown complications, and biocompatibility.

The course is open to ADA members and non-members. Participants earn a total of four continuing education credits upon completion.
