For 30 years, I taught at Columbia University where amoungst other things, I was the Director of the Emergency/Triage Clinic, the Director of the course on Practice Management and a lecturer on local anesthesia. Though my appointment was in the Department of Oral and Maxilofacial Surgery, I taught advanced general dentistry to residents and students including cosmetics and pain management. As Director of the General Practice Residency Program at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center I was also responsible for teaching the treatment of the medically compromised patient and Hospital Dentistry.
I have also, all the while, practiced in Manhattan, mostly in a multi-specialty group setting, where I consider myself to be a senior diagnostician and clinician.

Why should people with diabetes take good care of their teeth and gums?
What a great and important question. Diabetes has become epidemic in the US. As it relates to dentistry, it is a two way problem. First, diabetes can cause one to be more likely to develop gum disease, especially if the diabetes in poorly controlled. Second, the inflammation of gum disease can cause

How do orthodontics fit in among all the specialties of dentistry?
