Memphis, Tennessee’s daily newspaper The Daily News featured this week an article on Dr. Edward Mack, a new dentist practicing in East Memphis, and his work as a brigade dentist in the U.S. Army with the 82nd Airborne Division in Baghdad.
According to the story, Dr. Mack, an endodontist, spent seven months in Iraq, treating close to 1,000 of the division’s 3,500 soldiers.
“Some of it was extraction and some of it was routine,” Mack told The Daily News of the dental work. “Some of it was palliative. We were in combat situations. I had to work out of a backpack.”
Dr. Mack received the Combat Medical Badge as well as the Army Commendation Medal, according to the article. He is a member of the ADA, the Tennessee Dental Association and the Memphis Dental Society.
