OCEAN, N.J. - Sept. 19, 2013 - PRLog -- On Saturday, September 21, Alan G. Stern, DDS, whose wellness-centered practice in Ocean Township, New Jersey, focuses on preventive, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry as well as the treatment of sleep breathing disorders, will present a program he created with Dr. Jim Otten of Lawrence, Kansas, at the Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education's Alumni Meeting in Orlando, Florida.

"Two months ago, I was shocked to learn of the tragic death of a universally beloved and respected colleague and friend. Dr. Andrea Beerman of Leawood, Kansas, took her own life this past summer. She was bright, vivacious, talented, and successful beyond anyone’s wildest dreams. She was 34 years old. Dr. Beerman is not the first professional to commit suicide. And it is very likely that she will not be the last. Knowing this, I called my good friend Dr. Jim Otten. Together, we put together a program to educate dentists about depression in Dr. Beerman’s memory," according to Dr. Stern.

The program was designed to help dentists learn how to maintain their emotional wellness in stressful times in a stressful but rewarding career.

Says Dr. Stern: "None of us is perfect. No one’s journey through life is without a bumpy road here and there. I am determined to help some of the finest dentists in the world—including the very same people who have helped me become who I am. As the son of a Holocaust survivor, I believe to the core of my being that even the most horrific tragedy can give rise to something good. It is my fervent hope that my teaching efforts in memory of Dr. Andrea Beerman will help someone in a profound way and make her life a blessing to others for generations to come."
