Portrait of a Professional Dr. Frank Beglin PCSO President, 2014-2015 Carson City, Nevada By Dr. Jae Hyun Park Jae Park (JP): Tell me something about your childhood. I Frank Beglin (FB): was born and raised in a large family in San Francisco. My childhood was filled with the normal activities of family, school, and sports; my father was a physician, but no one in the family was in the dental profession. My mother and two of my four sisters are nurses. JP: How did you choose dentistry? FB: My father was a physician in an older style, solo practice. He was a very busy surgeon who saw patients in the mornings and afternoons, and then would go in on the weekend for three to four hours to do rounds at the hospital, so he was left with very little free time, which I knew he wanted more of. This led me away from medicine, but my desire to stay in healthcare led me to dentistry. At about that time, I received orthodontic treatment from my father's friend, retired PCSO member Dr. Ron Marenda. As a patient, I was inspired by Dr. Marenda; he al- lowed me to see firsthand what an interesting occupation orthodontics is. I went into dentistry with the intention of becoming an orthodontist. I completed my Bachelor of Science at the University of California-Berkeley, and my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Ohio State University. Between dental school and my orthodontic program, I finished a general practice residency (at the V.A.) in San Francisco and practiced general dentistry for a few years. I completed a three-year Master's program in orthodontics at Ohio State under the skilled guidance of Dr. Kate Vig and the late Dale Wade (past president of the ABO). Ohio State was going through an interesting period of transition with Dr. Kate Vig as the incoming orthodontic program director. The experience was new for both Dr. Vig and the residents, and Dr. Vig brought a lot of fresh ideas, research, and expertise to the program. It was a traditional residency, concentrating on the clinical and didactic aspects of orthodontics. The methods taught at Ohio State included mostly straight wire, and Begg.
