From finger lickin’ good barbeque, to a lively art scene, to a city rich with history, Dallas has some of the best things to offer in the state. And for the summer, we add top-tier dental continuing education to that list! From August 11 to 13, dental professionals will gather at the 89th annual Southwest Dental Conference at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center deep in the heart of downtown Dallas.
While this is a great opportunity to network and stay up to date on the latest advances in the dentistry, what’s perhaps just as important if not more so, is how attending this conference can benefit your practice and your patients. At the Dallas County Dental Society (DCDS), we’re passionate about putting patient care first, and this year’s conference theme, Living Your Best Life Through Dentistry, is sure to provide dental professionals with some great ways to help their patient’s do just that.
This year’s continuing education offerings are diverse, and we can see how many courses have been designed specifically with patient care in mind. Because your patients are the most important part of your practice, staying informed is crucial in order to ensure you are providing them with the best level of care possible.
This year, courses such as Physical Examination of the Head and Neck for Dental Health Providers which focuses on how to perform a thorough exam and documenting health history and findings, Heart Healthy Lifestyles: Nutrition, Supplements, Exercise and Weight Management which teaches providers components of a heart-healthy diet and other healthy living recommendations and Nutrition, Lifestyle and Perio: An Approach That Can Change the Life of Your Patients and Maybe Even Your Own which discusses the link between oral and overall health and provides exercise and sleep recommendations are all courses that focus on the patient’s whole body wellness and care..
The DCDS Scientific Committee has crafted a conference rich with learning opportunities to help you serve your patients better than ever before. With each conference you attend and each CE credit you check off your list, you’re directly improving your patient’s experience through the knowledge and skills you gain.
Registration for the Southwest Dental Conference is currently open.
