The editors of Dental Economics and DentistryIQ are proud to introduce Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, DMD, a practicing prosthodontist and former hygienist from Massachusetts. You may recognize her name from her contributions to our e-newsletter, Pearls for Your Practice: The Product Navigator, since the newsletter’s inception last year. We’re pleased to announce that she’ll now be serving as an editorial director for the newsletter, directing the issue deployed on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Below, she shares some information about herself and her plans for the newsletter.
Allow me to introduce myself: First things first, I love dentistry and sharing ideas, and I am thrilled to be an editorial director for this dynamic publication!
My name is Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, and I am a dental hygienist, turned dentist, turned prosthodontist. I believe that preventive care and the promotion of oral health have been the foundation for all of my success. I enjoy trying new technologies, and I love talking about all of my favorite tools, materials, and practices. My career has taken many twists and turns, and I have met some incredible academics and clinicians along the way. I am very excited to highlight some of the work of my incredibly talented friends and colleagues for you.
I own a dental practice in Massachusetts, and I spend most of my week treating patients. When I am not in the office, I am either teaching in a dental school or traveling when I am given the honor of lecturing at large conferences or in local study clubs. In addition to my dedication to restorative and prosthetic dentistry, I have always been passionate about prevention, and in 2010, the ADA recognized my practice as the Adult Preventive Care Practice of the Year. I’ve been sharing my practices ever since through publications, lectures, and webinars. It’s been an incredible experience! When I look back on my career, I have been very blessed, but it seems that I am constantly challenging myself with new endeavors.
On a personal note, I have an incredible husband (who is not a dentist!) and we live with our four-legged children: two cats and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I enjoy the outdoors, participating in our local Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Meetup group (it is heaven on earth), dining with family and friends, and travel.
Despite my busy lifestyle, I am committed to keep bringing fresh topics and ideas to you. I am also open to suggestions; if you have a topic that you would like to either read about or write about in this publication, please let me know. I believe that the Product Navigator is for professionals, by professionals, and I would be delighted to hear from you!
