MAP TALKS

 

DR. FELIPE BAUER

“Felipe Bauer graduated from the University of Arizona cum laude and with honors as a Veterinary Science major and a minor in Astronomy. After interning in a small animal hospital and at the Reid Park Zoo, he decided to change his sights to human dentition, even though observing an elephant dental extraction was quite fascinating! He attended the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine and returned home to practice dentistry in his hometown of Tucson. He was fortunate enough to spend the first two years in an LVI trained office, where he learned much about physiologic dentistry and ultimately completed the coursework to earn his LVI fellowship. He is currently working as a staff dentist at the local dental center of the Pascua Yaqui Native American reservation, serving a beautiful community with important cultural significance in the Southern Arizona region. He remains passionate about pursuing the highest quality of dentistry with modern technological advancements, taking courses at CDOCS on digital scanning, milling, and printing. He one day looks to create the premier physiologic practice in Tucson, inspired by the LVI faculty who have set an incredible standard to aspire to.”

THE GAME-WINNING 3

MR. DAVE DAVLIN

Over 25 years ago, Dave Davlin began bringing smiles to faces with a form of entertainment he developed as a young boy. From NBA and major college arenas across America to the Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea— and even to the world-famous Branson Strip— “Travelin” Davlin has entertained people of every age and background. His amazing ability with basketballs even landed his name and picture in the 1990 Guinness Book of World Records.

Dave began to hone his speaking skills in the early 90’s as a national speaker in the public schools across America. Combining his entertainment ability with a powerful message, he was instrumental in the fight for education and against drugs. At the advice of friends working in corporate America, Dave began to develop presentations for the corporate and association market and the rest is history. He now speaks at numerous corporate and associational conferences each year. From public school students to CEOs, Dave’s message has made a difference in the lives of thousands, and his impact continues to grow each year as he shares his philosophy and wisdom through speaking and writing.
