Mr. Whitman brings a medical engineering mindset to the dental industry. A graduate of Tulane University with both a B.S. and M.S.E. in biomedical engineering, he began his career at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center as a clinical engineer who used fluorescence technology to detect cervical cancer. Shortly thereafter, Whitman joined the research and development department for Remicalm LLC/Trimira LLC and engineered cancer screening products that incorporated the fluorescence technology developed at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Whitman's extensive clinical engineering experience allowed him to become a manager of technical sales for Trimira, where he focused on training customers how to properly use fluorescence technology in order to detect oral cancer.
