Dr. Caitilin Martini, of Tampa, Florida, Is Announced as a Mentor and Senior Instructor for the California Center for Advanced Dental Studies

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - December 1, 2008) - After careful consideration, the California Center for Advanced Dental Studies' (CCADS) board is excited to announce that Dr. Caitilin Martini, DMD, has been appointed as a Mentor Senior Instructor. "We are thrilled to have Dr. Martini as a Mentor-Senior Instructor. She absolutely possesses all the qualities we look for. She's a premier clinician and an outstanding teacher," said Dr. Thomas Dudney, Program Director of CCADS.

Dr. Martini's selection is the result of a rigorous selection process that includes an in-depth look at the doctor's collegiate and post-graduate education, clinical skills and overall integrity. In order to be selected, the dentist must have completed a minimum of 120 hours and three levels of advanced clinical training from accredited post-graduate programs. "What distinguishes our Mentors," comments Garrett Caldwell, President of CCADS, "is their comprehension and use of advanced clinical protocols for veneers including all types of indirect all-ceramic and ceromer composite restorations and their overall commitment to excellence in their practices."

Mentor-Instructors for CCADS have many responsibilities, including conducting their own local study groups in their offices and instructing nationally and internationally at seminars and live patient hands-on programs. However, more important than their clinical duties is their responsibility to the public and to any doctor who seeks assistance or mentoring in the field of cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Caitilin Martini is a native of Tampa and earned her dental degree from the University of Florida College of Dentistry, where she later worked as a clinical instructor. She has completed comprehensive and advanced cosmetic training from leading doctors around the country. She is an active member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and works with Give Back a Smile, a charity that helps victims of domestic violence. Dr. Martini maintains a private practice in Tampa, Florida.

The California Center for Advanced Dental Studies (CCADS) is a non-profit organization focused on changing the way post-graduate dental education is offered to dentists. CCADS is led by Program Director, Dr. Thomas Dudney, and has mentors and instructors currently conducting study clubs and clinical programs related to cosmetic dentistry across North America and the UK.
