The medical industry moves forward at an incredible pace, and the dental industry within it is no exception. Every day there are new advances that make treatment faster, more effective, and safer or simply introduce new techniques that allow treatment of conditions that existing options didn’t cover. From new diagnostic techniques to preventive care, you need a series of continuing education to ensure you’re abreast of the newest and best advancements in oral care.
Continuing education ensures that those dentists who keep up are masters in the area of complex dental care including, but not limited to, the following areas:
- Sedation by IV
- Oral Surgery
- Dental Restoration
The most successful experts in the dental field keep abreast of continuing education by taking classes from leading clinicians, expanding their knowledge within general dental care and their individual specialties. Our program is focused on ensuring that our dental practitioners are the finest in their field.
Ongoing Technique Refinement
The things our dentists learn through continuing education enable them to refine their techniques by incorporating the latest understanding of the dental medicine into their medical practice. Every day new treatments are developed, and we want to ensure that our dentists bring these updated techniques and information to our clients.
Updated Dental License
Each state carries their own individual requirements for practicing dentists to be able to update their license, and all of them include some level of continuing education. In addition to refining their techniques, you’ll want to ensure that you don’t have to cram in your required hours before their license expires.
Building A Resume
Continuing to study and update your knowledge of the field, you keep your experience relevant to employers looking for the best and brightest of today’s dental world. Your resume should include a running list of courses containing what you know, what courses you’ve taken, and what treatments you specialize in. All of these can increase your value to a prospective employer, or aid advancement within your current career.
Courses are rarely taken individually, but instead, are conducted in large groups of like-minded specialists. These specialists will share your priorities and in many cases your geographic area, promoting the exchange of ideas and a list of experts in specific forms of treatment. We encourage our practitioners to build a network of colleagues who are specialists in different forms of care and different treatment courses. This creates a valuable font of information for the practitioner, and in certain cases working knowledge of where to send a patient in need of specialized care.
