Understanding these factors will assist educators to develop programs to meet the personal and professional needs of dental CE participants.
The tool I am using to collect data is a very brief survey that takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. Your participation is voluntary and only involves completing the survey. Please read the statement at the beginning of the survey that outlines the risks and benefits of participation.
Please click on the following link to complete the survey: http://edu.surveygizmo.com/s3/1574038/Dentists-Preference-of-Continuing-Education-Delivery-Format
If you have time, consider completing an additional assessment survey accessed by clicking on the link found at the end of the survey. This link takes you to the Visual, Aural, Read/write or Kinesthetic (VARK) learning assessment, which provides you with your modal preferences for communication. You will be able to download your results when it is completed. No personal identifying information will be collected or retained by either survey.
Thank you for considering my request. I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to participate.

This weekend, LMT celebrates its 30th LAB DAY Chicago! It's hard to believe that this show--the largest...See more gathering of dental laboratory decision makers in North America--began with just 30 exhibitors and about 275 attendees.
Prior to 1985, the Chicago Dental Society (CDS)'s MidWinter Meeting was housed in the downtown Hilton Hotel and a handful of companies hosted programs for the laboratory community across the street in the Blackstone Hotel. But in 1985, the CDS moved its meeting to the convention center, which left some companies up in the air about what to do for their technician customers.
LMT President Judy Fishman--agreeing with some laboratory manufacturers who felt their companies would be dwarfed at the MidWinter--booked space at the Blackstone and offered exhibit tables to laboratory product marketers. The rest is history: this weekend, LMT will host 200 exhibitors, over 3,000 attendees and nearly 250 educational programs at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers. See you there!
If you're attending Lab Day in Chicago, don't miss the chance to see the newest Ceramill CAD/CAM products,...See more meet the Amann Girrbach America team, and hear presentations from some of the industry's most prominent voices.
All day on Saturday, the Amann Girrbach Lab Lounge (Ballroom 4) will be home to one-on-one Ceramill system demos, educational sessions, and new-product displays, as well as the Cocktails & Crowns happy hour reception from 4:00 to 6:00.

Becoming a master technician requires much more than being technically competent. Understanding and applying the skills of dental technology is the first step to success, but working with a team requires understanding the softer skills...
I recently started looking for new techs for my lab. I have some prospects tell me they are a grandfathered...See more CDT. They haven't taken any tests nor do they educational hours required by the industry. So politely I ask for documentation for this grandfathered in. Of course they don't have any.
Does anybody run into this?
Last week our lab sponsored Dr Howard Farran (CEO of dentaltown.com) to over 100 dentists and 14 vendors...See more exhibiting; It was ,as usual with Dr Farran, a raving success. Howard is a staright forward power-information type of guy that tells it like it is,and teaches the dentists how to succeed in a challenging economy.
The point is that it is events like these that can build your laboratory. Is it for everyone,of course not. But even if you do not 'want to' or 'cannot' get in front of a group to speak, let alone simply make an informercial and introduce your speaker, then all is not lost: simply have someone do it for you,perhaps your most outgoing tech, an outgoing office staff person,etc. However, I have to tell you, our lab is connected to 100 (yes,100) events a year, with study clubs, county societies, our own seminars directly sponsored & marketed by us, and with specialists looking to build & maintain their referral base.
Think about how long it would take you to be in frontof 20 (let alone 100) dentists and have their attention! Here you can do it, in a most memorable way, and at NO cost to you. (Should I repeat that: no cost to you)
Our lab has been using education honestly not just as a marketing tool, but as a genuine way of upgrading the dental community here in our target market(NJ), sometimes changing dentists lives(yes,I'll explain this in later posts), and filling a true void in continuing education,since we only have one dental school in the state.
I will talk about negotiating with venues,how to select venues,speakers:negotiating and selection, how to market & guarantee you'll fill up your seats, using telemarketing,direct mail,and networking to market your events but in a very cost effective way, and partnering with 'vendors' who want exposure to the dentists at your events! (I hope to write a detailed article for LMT on this)
Over the years our lab sponsored over 1000 events,including week long cruises to Carribean,Alaska and Mediterranean,and several weekend trips to Las Vegas.
Over half our clients come from continuing ed events,and it is also an opportunity to bond and maintain relations by seeing your current clients at these events,
Whether you are thinking of getting started in this arena, or you are a seasoned event planner,I am confident you'll find some pearls in my upcoming posts. But it's pretty late having driven back from an evening seminar tonight so,see you guys soon!
