Why She Was Nominated

Drs. Conklin and Ward regularly take part in peer study groups and advanced procedural classes to expand their expertise.

Favorite Aspect of Dentistry

Dr. Conklin enjoys pre-interviewing patients: “That one-on-one time I have to get to know the patient before we get started is as important for me as it is for them.”

Biggest Challenge

“Continuing to improve every day,” Dr. Conklin says. “We’re harder on ourselves than anyone else. But we have many mentors and study groups where we can continue to learn new things.”
