    Dr. Jusino believes strongly in the value of continuing education for himself, and the


      All Star Team.  Recently, we attended the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO)  


      meeting in Washington D.C. (May 4-8, 2018), and returned pumped with new ideas.


      We also brought back some awesome "Braces Earrings" patients can buy with their Tooth


      Tokens.  Check out the "Braces Bracelets," too on display in the Tooth Tokens prize case. 



       In February of 2017, the team attended a three day seminar in Orlando, Florida furthering


      our understanding of the Damon System.  Dr. Damon was a guest speaker, and  


      everyone returned with additional knowledge and training.  In 2021, CPR training was


      renewed for another two years.    To see pictures of the fun we have while attending


      continuing education "like" the office "Facebook" fan page! 



      In March of 2019, Dr. Jusino and our Executive Director Cathy attended the MAO annual


      session in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  Michigan Association of Orthodontists (MAO).



     Dr. Jusino also attends a monthly study group with (8) other Orthodontic Specialists.


     The Doctors take turns meeting at each other's offices to discuss topics such as


     difficult cases, and practice management philosophies.  There is never an attitude of


     competition, only a willingness to help each other.  The members of Dr. Jusino's study


     group also share a legal agreement between themselves whereby they will come to the


     assistance of any doctor within the group who is incapacitated for any reason.  Fortunately,


     Dr. Jusino has never experienced a reason to take advantage of this "insurance policy."


     He is "feeling great and very healthy!"



           Members of the All Star Team are enrolled in the Academy of Orthodontic Assisting,


           and are required to complete training earning thirty hours of continuing education


           credits.  The All Star Team achieved Gold status in May of 2010.
