Introducing the Technically Dental Event..

In an effort to get in front of Doctors with the very topics I discuss here, I came upon the concept of a hosted event in a setting in which they are very much at ease. Co-hosted by a wonderful oral surgeon (that happens to be a client of mine) and catered by an award-winning service, I held my Technically Dental event recently with the attendance of eight offices. Absolute success.

My goal was not so much to get in front of Doctors and preach about technology but to have a group discussion (or study) regarding the technical issues they face today. It took a bit of coaxing, but I was able to get everyone involved. And with each office's involvement came a different revelation or misconception of how they could/should be handling the office technology. Experiences were shared, tips and recommendations were imparted, and everyone seemed to take a little something from the event. Including some delicious food.

The decision has already been made to do this again, perhaps before the end of the year. And with the number of offices I come across on a regular basis still struggling to get their arms around the technology side, I imagine these events will continue for the foreseeable future. I may even have to look into the ability to supply CE credits.
