Program Purpose / Objectives
The purpose of this activity is to educate the whole dental team on how technology can smoothly transition a dental practice to a higher level of efficiency, patient care, professional satisfaction, and profit

Preliminary Objectives for Activity:
“At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
· Select and integrate technology into their practice the right way, keeping doctor and team in their comfort zones
· Incorporate digital radiography, clinical practice management software, intra oral cameras, laser caries detectors, patient education systems, and CAD/CAM (CEREC 3-D) into their dental practice
· Determine the differences between direct digital sensors and indirect digital “image phosphor” technology and choose the appropriate technology for their practice
· Reduce expenses and increase productivity by adding digital radiography to their dental practice
· Define the role of hygienists, assistants, and the team in practice management, technology, and marketing.
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe.
