SCOTTSDALE, Arizona--The Scottsdale Center for Dentistry is offering dentists an exclusive opportunity to join a select community to be educated and mentored by some of dentistry's leading clinicians and practice managers.

The Gordon J. Christensen Fellowship Program, commencing in March 2008, provides 20 days of multidisciplinary, highly integrated continuing education delivered in 10, two-day sessions.

Participants select their choice of five 2-day sessions each year. There is also ongoing education and support through monthly interactive online sessions delivered over 24 months.

"The Fellowship Program represents the ideal opportunity to learn under the top clinicians in dentistry," says Dr. Gordon J. Christensen, Dean of the Scottsdale Center.
