“Smile! Creating Healthy and Beautiful Smiles with Cosmetic Dentistry”, currently scheduled for release in the summer of 2020, will aim to provide patients with the most up-to-date information on state-of-the-art dental treatment. The main purpose of the book, according to Blue Ocean Publishing Group’s purchasing agent, Anna Foster, is to give patients real, practical information to help them in obtaining the best possible restorative and cosmetic dental work.
The book will feature contributions from expert dentists selected from across the country who are skilled and trained in the latest dental treatment procedures. Foster notes that “these expert dentists can provide people with all the necessary information for anyone seeking cosmetic or restorative dental treatment.”
Dr. James R. Green, an experienced and established oral surgeon, owner of Green Oral Surgery in Tampa, Florida, will be contributing a chapter on dental implants, explaining the options patients have, the different implant types, and the procedures.
Importantly, the book is being written in layman’s language that the average person can easily understand. It is intended not as a textbook for dental professionals, but as a helpful guide for ordinary people looking for top-quality dental work. The expert contributors to “Smile!” are dentists who have advanced training and skills in modern dentistry and vast experience with procedures such as implants, veneers, and orthodontics.
Dr. James R. Green was born and raised in Gainesville, FL. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration in 2003 and then was accepted to attend the College of Dentistry. He obtained his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Florida in 2008.
Dr. Green completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Anesthesia training at a Cornell affiliated hospital, The Brooklyn Hospital Center, in Brooklyn, NY.
