Cedar Falls, IA – Thomas J. Horak, D.D.S., P.C., a cosmetic dentist in Cedar Falls, and his staff recently attended the Star of the North Dental Meeting on April 26th and 27th.

Hosted by the Minnesota Dental Association, thousands of dentists, educators, hygienists, and more, gathered to attend courses and lectures presented by some of the top dental minds in the country. Dr. Horak says his main motivation for attending the meeting was because he believes furthering his education is crucial to consistently providing his patients with the best possible care.
Since 1996, Dr. Horak has led a team of experienced hygienists and dental assistants dedicated to serving Cedar Falls and the surrounding communities with comprehensive dental care.

Having attended multiple courses at the conference, Dr. Horak says he is excited to implement everything he and his staff learned into his Cedar Falls cosmetic dentistry practice. Notable courses from the event offered information on new advancements in periodontics, the diagnosis and treatment of endodontic diseases, infection control, prescription drug therapy and medications, practice management, and improving patient service. Dr. Horak says the lectures provided a great opportunity to hone his skills by collaborating with other experienced dentists. He adds that as a dentist he feels the education process should never end, and he believes it is important to continuously exercise one’s mind in an effort to provide the most successful treatments and procedures day in and day out.
Dr. Horak says the experience he and his staff received from the meetings will go a long way towards helping achieve their practice’s goal of providing the most advanced and highest quality dental care possible.
