Join in an ongoing think tank among your peers in a relaxed, friendly environment that emphasizes learning, sharing and networking. Complex problems have creative solutions, and Terry and Janis direct our Study Clubs with that in mind. Discover how other dental professionals overcome their obstacles and realize their dreams.
Our Annual Study Clubs are located in an inspirational retreat setting. These provocative, compelling and well-rounded programs include ropes courses, corporate training games, leading assessment instruments, and each year we select a best-selling book to create focus and guide our learning. Our events are catered with gourmet meals, chats around the fireside and a private lake for swimming and paddle-boating in the summer.
Participants are eager to get there and reluctant to leave. Start reaping the rewards of fellowship and shared knowledge. Join one of our Study Clubs today!
During our Annual Study Clubs: Discover how open, honest communication and good fun strengthen bonds between colleagues, peers and friends in a focused yet relaxed environment.
Leadership Mastery Study Clubs - for dentist/doctors only
Leadership is not an easy skill to master without the guidance of experienced professionals and the input of one's peers. Brainstorm with your colleagues and exchange ideas on shared leadership, time management, comprehensive case development, fluent and meaningful communication, stress relief and effective delegation so you can focus on the art and science of dentistry.
Connect with a community of dentists dedicated to professional growth and surpassing excellence in health-centered dentistry. Our dentist-only leadership study clubs create a great environment for real learning and profound change. After you experience one of our study clubs, we know that you will return to your practice ready to lead and empower your team to even deeper ownership and collaboration.
Hygiene Study Clubs
Reaching and maintaining the highest clinical standards and fulfillment in hygiene requires diligence and awareness, and openness to fresh, modern ideas. Engage in lively discussions, experiential exercises, and exploration of new ideas with your cohorts in our hygiene study club. Take part in this learning community, and join the conversation about what is possible in hygiene.
Dental Hygienists make a significant difference in the quality of people's lives, safeguarding their dental and overall health. We focus on the hygienist's role as facilitator, and as health-advocate and change agent. We examine the role of facilitation in hygiene, with both new and established patients. We also explore internal marketing opportunities, and the powerful impact hygienists have on practice growth.
"Terry has the extraordinary ability to provide the spark that propels a group to new heights. She brings insight from her heart and calls forth the absolute best in people."
- Dr. Fred Troxel, Dentist
Big Pine Key, Florida
"It was fulfilling and rewarding to be with other hygienists sharing ideas, products, programs and forms. It was such reinforcement to have the opportunity to listen for values, three levels of outcome, practice handoffs and debriefs. Powerful! -This workshop will cement facilitation as the primary method of team and patient health improvement."
- Janet Cook RDH, Dental Hygienist
Practice Administrator Study Club
If there's a nerve-center to the well-run practice, it's the Practice Administrator's office. Part cheerleader, part architect, part mediator and part HR guru, the "PA" keeps every part of the practice running smoothly and efficiently. If something's awry, she's the first to know - and the first to organize damage control. Keep on your toes with the latest techniques and strategies to maintain and improve care and efficiency. Discuss your ideas for the next step in the growth of your practice. This indispensable think-tank of your colleagues awaits to provide you with insights and new inspiration.
Patient Facilitator Study Club
You are on the front line of ensuring quality care and patient involvement in their own dental health-care plan. Clear, concise and informative communication between every part of your practice - dentists, hygienists, administrators and patients - is your responsibility and number one concern. In our Patient Facilitator Study Club, you will hear real-world stories about how involving the patient more deeply in a supportive decision-making environment can lead to better health outcomes - and more enthusiastic referrals.
Relax, connect, pool ideas with peers and share in their collective experience.
"I am going to use as many aspects of this camp as I can daily; sharing the results with my colleagues, holding myself accountable, and enjoying each moment of each interaction."
- Corri Richey RDH and Patient Facilitator
Draw inspiration and vigor from the setting of your choice as you enjoy satisfying days of personal and professional development…while you also relax and unwind.
