Course Title: Diagnostically Driven Dentistry: The Business of Dentistry and How it All Fits Together


Course Description: In dentistry, superior diagnostics relates to creating more efficient methodologies to result in better decision making and ultimately a higher quality of care and long-term success.

This course will take the attendee into modern day general dentistry and demonstrate why the GP must be in control in how they integrate treatments with their specialists. Throughout the day, the business of dentistry will be presented, integrating the latest in software technologies and “actionable analytics” to demonstrate clear pathways in creating office/hygiene growth. This is a great team course and is designed with common sense approaches to drive your office forward.
