“This was a very interesting and useful overview of dentistry and the dental industry,” said an attendee. “It was very informative to learn not only about dental procedures, but also the business of dentistry and dental school education.”

During the program, attendees discussed a wide range of topics with sessions including overviews of dental hygiene, restorative dentistry, pediatric dentistry, implant dentistry, the benchmarks of the dental industry, radiology and even a Q&A with a panel of dental students. The hands-on segments were divided into breakout groups so participants could experience several different procedures per session.

“A fabulous course that gives insight to the industry and dental education system that you can’t get anywhere else,” said DentalEZ’s Eric Reno. “You’ll get a condensed perspective of a variety of operatory challenges and how students are equipped to handle real world cases once they graduate.”

The hands-on sessions allowed participants to learn first hand techniques for caries removal and filling, digital radiology, intraoral scanning and CAD CAM, dental hygiene procedures and performing an endodontic root canal procedure. Attendees also heard from dental students on their views about the dental profession and their future plans.
