Dentists and Auxiliary Personnel
Program Purpose / Objectives
Present it right and they will say yes! Grow Your Practice: understanding why patients say yes.

Making dental images and knowing how to utilize them are a major element in expanding cosmetic and other elective dental services. Digital dental imaging allows the practice to provide better treatment planning, legal documentation, record keeping and laboratory communication.

Most course attendees understand the basic benefits of digital images, but don’t understand the power of digital dental images nor the procedural steps or skills in place to achieve them. Step by step procedures and the hands-on nature of the course help make clear the process from procurement to presentation to benefits.

What is provided: Digital cameras; Digital Photography Made Simple workbook (Yours to keep); Presentation template software; Professional mirrors and retractors.

Ports of Call
Hilo, Hawaii - Gaze up from this charming town and see snow-capped Mauna Kea volcano. It's just one of the scenic marvels in this exotic greenhouse of lush tropical plants, towering banyan trees, thundering falls and enough flowers to fill a rainbow. Arid deserts, steaming fissures and volcanoes that blow their tops are just as impressive.
Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii - Combine the languid allure of the tropics with big-city sophistication, then add the spirit of aloha, and you've got Honolulu. This Pacific crossroads features museums, dazzling beaches, historic Pearl Harbor and spectacular sunrises over Diamond Head. Gardenias and jasmine blanket the air with a heady fragrance, and pink sunsets cast a magical glow over fabled Waikiki Beach.
Kona, Hawaii - The sun-blessed Kona coast stretches 80 miles along macadamia nut orchards, famous coffee plantations and some of the most important sites in Hawaiian history. The coast is famous for water sports, and the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament is a world-renowned annual event.
Maui, Hawaii - Once the center of the notorious Yankee Pacific whaling fleet, today Lahaina's historic grog shops and ship chandleries have been transformed into fashionable boutiques, galleries and restaurants. Other popular optional shore excursions: a humpback whale search; Haleakala Crater, so vast it could swallow Manhattan, skyscrapers and all; the heavenly road to Hana and the seven sacred pools.
Nawiliwili, Kauai, Hawaii - The Garden Isle, Kauai receives the most rainfall of all the Hawaiian Islands, which leads to lush vegetation and elegant hibiscus blossoms, as well as a huge canyon carved by wind and water erosion. Marvel at the narrow paths worn by the ancient Menehunes into the cliffsides of the steep Na Pali Coast, unmarred by roads and unapproachable except by foot trail or helicopter.

Our staff can assist you with all your travel arrangements.
