Celebrating the ACP's 50th Anniversary: Dr. Larry M. Over
"I have this wonderful photo of myself and Dr. Charles Goodacre (pictured, left) that was taken at the ACP Prosthodontic Review Course in Seattle in Sept. 2018. Charlie was my program director at Indiana when I was a resident there from 1989-1992. Dr. Jerry Andres (not pictured) was my maxillofacial director. Both these educators played a vital role in my education as a maxillofacial prosthodontist. I owe my profession to them and I am eternally thankful for their dedication to educating me. They were both very instrumental in encouraging me to become Board certified and they became lifelong friends to me. To both of them, I am most grateful." - Dr. Larry M. Over (pictured, right)
