After a fulfilling career in Orthodontics, Radiology has broadened my  horizons and offers new and stimulating challenges.  I enjoy connecting with and  providing a service for practitioners from all over the globe.   I appreciate the camaraderie of my colleagues at BeamReaders and for the freedom to enjoy working from multiple locations.  Along with the hurdles of completing  a thirty month specialty program have come many rewards.
