Darlene has been a technician, practice owner, and trainer in many disciplines, including dentistry. She has lectured for companies and organizations such as OraStrip, Midmark, AZVMA, and others.
What WVP Dental U Participants are Saying
Dr. White was fantastic. She provided important and relevant tips and techniques. She used cases to illustrate specific conditions and how to determine if the patient needed to be treated or referred. I also enjoyed hearing her actual anesthesia protocol!
“All of it was amazing! Darlene is extremely smart, kind and made it easy to engage and learn.”
“It was so amazing to have such a small and friendly group. It made it easy to ask questions and learn. Our small group (6 people) had a board-certified veterinary dentist all to ourselves for two days. It was wonderful!”
“I loved this training. I learned some advanced techniques that will be helpful in an advanced lab – especially for those wanting to learn beyond basic extractions and teeth preservation, bone loss restoration, etc.”
