The Cornell Effect
This is the true story of Cornell Richardson, who was born three and a half months early, at one-pound, nine-ounces. The severity of his issues gave him little chance for survival, let alone for a normal life.
He spent the first six months of his life in the NICU and was then moved to a ventilator-dependent unit at The Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters. On that unit, a young Occupational Therapist named Kim Cranham began to care for him. She saw things in Cornell that many of the doctors didn’t. Against their recommendations, she persuaded her husband to bring Cornell home as their foster child. On February 2, 1994, after two months of training to care for his advanced needs, they brought him home.
This is an up-from-the-ashes story of incredible courage, persistence, and inspiration. It is a story of how a young couple started a journey to help a sick little boy, and in the process, he dramatically changed the trajectory of their lives. While written as a chronological memoir over 25 years, it is filled with the principles they learned from Cornell that have led to a more happy, peaceful, and content life.
The Complete Dentist Manual
Complete Dentistry vs. „Usual and customary” Most dentists typically do not know what they do not know; so they go on practicing “usual and customary” dentistry without ever knowing how good their practices could be. This text is a politically incorrect “tell it like it is” exposure of why so many practices fall short of the satisfaction and rewards that predictably successful dentistry provides. A true clinicians manual, every chapter is based on long-term observation of thousands of patients using objective criteria for “complete” examinations, comprehensive treatment planning, patient communication and successful practice management for exceptional patient care. The contribution of practicing faculty members with experience in teaching thousands of dentists, laboratory technicians and staff members, makes the text an easily understood venue for fulfilling the stated goal of The Dawson Academy for Advanced Dental Study: We love to make good dentists even better.
A Better Way: The surprising path to a complete life.
For nearly 60 years dentists from around the world have traveled to St. Petersburg, Florida to attend Peter Dawson’s seminars on “The Concept of Complete Dentistry.™” He’s personally taught more than 50,000 of those practitioners. In the process he literally redefined dentistry and its standard of care by challenging his professional peers to raise their sites beyond “usual and customary” practices, to become true physicians of the masticatory system. Yet why would anyone decide to read a book about a dentist, no matter how accomplished? Perhaps, because Pete Dawson is more than a dentist. A plethora of achievements plus a wealth of unusual life experiences have provided him great insight and wisdom. Yet this is not an advice book. It’s an inspiring story of persistence—from a man who overcame hardship, professional ridicule and injustice, and who, at the age of 88, still speaks and lectures to thousands of dentists a year. It’s a coming-of-age memoir set in the natural outdoor wonderland of pre-Disney Florida. It’s an adventure tale about a young man who waterskied behind the Goodyear blimp and once skippered a sailboat through a Pacific Ocean typhoon. It’s a first-person chronicling of a genuine pilgrimage of faith. On top of all this, it’s a heart-warming and heart-wrenching love story. But the most important reason for reading this book? It’s the promise reflected in its title and in Pete Dawson’s life-long quest to discover A Better Way. A Better Way to practice dentistry, for sure. But also, A Better Way to define success. A Better Way to balance the demands of a career with the needs of a family. In short, A Better Way to live.
