Partnering for Excellence
A continuation of achievement
The healthcare industry never stands still. It’s constantly developing and growing, which requires doctors of all ages and levels to participate in continuing education programs. At Heartland Dental, we believe that the pursuit of education is a lifelong endeavor and the key to a thriving dental practice.
Partnering for Excellence is a Heartland Dental continuing education series offered specifically to seasoned supported doctors who are looking to further their education in the office as well as beyond the dental chair. Since the program focuses on partnership and leadership in conjunction with clinical training, attendees have the unique opportunity to gain knowledge in a variety of facets that they wouldn’t normally have access to.
The first course of this two-part series took place in St. Louis, Missouri in August with David Garber, DMD, whom is part of the illustrious Goldstein, Garber and Salma, a Heartland Dental supported office. Among his list of exemplary talents and achievements, Dr. Garber is a principal leader in the implant industry and an award-winning educator and accomplished author. During his seminar on implant restoration, Dr. Garber was interactive with the crowd showing them cases he had worked on and guiding them through the process with photos and video demonstrations. He introduced them to DentalXp.com, which is referred to as an online implant externship. The website provides doctors with step-by-step videos on how to perform a variety of procedures. “The work we do with dental implants is incredible,” said Dr. Garber. “We’re not just giving them a new smile – we’re changing their life.”
This October, the second part of the series will take place in Orlando, Florida. Rick Workman, DMD, our own founder and CEO will be sharing his knowledge on leadership, communication and business, which he has gained from over 35 years of industry experience. Dr. Workman will speak on a variety of topics including the establishment, growth and future of Heartland Dental and important day-to-day processes such as clearly identifying mission and vision statements, verbalizing and defining goals and making good use of leadership skills. He stated, “The majority of successful practices are comprised of a doctor who is confident in his or herself and leading their team. In addition to leadership, there has to be a good balance of trust and communication for the practice to continue to flourish. It is important to note that all of these methods must be integral parts of the same machine in order for it to function strongly and accurately.”
Also at the fall course, John Cranham, DDS, will be speaking on restoring worn dentition and what the future holds for supported dentists. Dr. Cranham is internationally recognized and respected for his groundbreaking work in esthetic dentistry and modern concepts on occlusion. He currently serves as the Clinical Director of the world-famous Dawson Academy.
