On the occasion of Dr. Walden’s 25th anniversary of dental practice in Ellettsville, he, his wife Marie, and his family would like to thank his patients and community for all of their support, especially during his son, Kit’s recovery period. Dr. Walden is also now a certified member of the American Laser Dentist Society (ALDS), the American Orthodontic Society, and is pleased to announce the addition of digital radiography—one of the newest and sophisticated dental technologies—to his office in April 2008. Dr. Walden will be attending the ALDS convention this April in San Diego and learning the newest techniques and technological advances that the laser dental industry has to offer. Dr. Walden also attended the National American Dental Association conference in San Francisco in October 2007 where he learned the latest techniques in laminates and cosmetic dentistry.
