November 2018
"Socrates said "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." To me, this means my knowledge of any aspect of life, especially dentistry, is incomplete. Knowledge is like an onion - it's layered. I can't become complacent with my knowledge or who I've become because I know the outside layer of what I need to know & my potential. It also demands that I don't become puffed up with what I know."

- David Tillman, DDS, MAGD | Ft. Worth AGD  
Ensy Atarod: International Woman of Mercy
"I was so glad that I challenged myself to step out of the familiar and got to experience the people and the culture."
