Anita Aminoshariae

Dr. Anita Aminoshariae was featured on ABC News 5 on their January 31st broadcast. Dr. Aminoshariae discussed opioid pain relief and her opinion that dentists should never consider opioids their first choice in pain management, when over-the-counter drugs can be just as effective with fewer side effects. According to the ADA, dentists have been writing fewer opioid prescriptions over the 5-year period since 2012, but there is more that can be done.

Dr. Aminoshariae Named District Director by AAE

Anita Aminoshariae, D.D.S., ’99, M.S., assistant professor, and director of pre-doctoral endodontics, was recently named as district director for the American Academy of Endodontics (District IV). She has also been appointed as a representative for the endodontic section of the American Dental Education Association. In outlining her motivation to serve in these capacities, she explains, “I have heard from many dental organization members who have had concerns that organized dental groups don’t "represent" them. They may also feel that an organization "doesn’t do anything for me," or "all they do is take my money." But, "If we don’t join our professional organizations, then we may as well take our gloves off and let others dictate the future of our profession – and our own individual practices.
