Whether you’re a CS PracticeWorks, CS SoftDent, CS OrthoTrac or CS WinOMS practice, the Global Oral Health Summit is where Carestream Dental software users go every year to learn how to boost the efficiency of day-to-day operations, improve the patient experience and promote their practices. In short, the Summit is for teams that want to take their practice to the next level, so Carestream Dental has stepped up its game with next-level courses, speakers, social events and networking opportunities.
Learn from the Best
Industry consultants and renowned doctors share their insight with a personable and unique approach. Attendees can pick and choose the courses that fit their needs or choose from tracks based on either specialty or software. Courses cover case acceptance, change management, efficiency, improving practice marketing, practice technology, prevention, team building and digital oral health. Plus, keynote speaker Ryan Estis addresses how embracing change can be to your practice’s advantage.
Become an Expert
In addition to lecture-style courses and panels on the latest industry trends, Carestream Dental trainer-led hands-on sessions walk users through the nuances of CS PracticeWorks, CS SoftDent, CS OrthoTrac and CS WinOMS, with both beginner/intermediate level and advanced level classes. These courses allow participants to work within the software while asking questions directly of software product experts. By the end of these hour-long courses, users will have learned the tricks and shortcuts needed to streamline their practice management.
Earn CE Credits
All of the courses and sessions add up to be the perfect opportunity to earn Continuing Education credits—up to 13, in fact. Keeping up with education is important, no matter the specialty or attendee’s role, in order to stay on par with latest techniques and technology.
Exchange Ideas, Not Just Business Cards
At the Summit, teams from across specialties and regions can connect with peers to exchange ideas, share solutions and build referral connections. Software-specific plenary sessions connect software users so they can exchange tips and learn about product updates, while the networking kick-off lunch helps attendees network and build referrals in a relaxed setting.
New friendships and connections can be made in the hallways on the way to class, or at the spa or by the pool. It’s no joke; the opening reception is poolside, broken up into specialty groups, with a special laser light show to close the evening. Doctors and staff can choose from any other number of social events over the course of the Summit to mix and mingle with peers from within their specialty or to network with practices from across the industry.
Get Up, Get Moving
Get pumped up each morning with fitness programs offered by Carestream Dental. Studies show that exercise increases endorphins and enhances focus. On Friday, a Latin dance-inspired cardio workout is the caliente way to start the day. Saturday morning, join Carestream Dental team members for a fun walk/run that takes participants around the beautiful grounds of the hotel.
Hack the System
Carestream Dental has invited innovators from MIT to host a hack-a-thon, a collaborative effort with other technology users to simulate real-world problem solving scenarios. If an attendee has a technology “hack,” idea or solution that they know will help other practices, this mass brainstorming session is for them. The solutions discussed during the hack-a-thon may be used to shape the future development of dental technology.
For those arriving in Orlando early, a special service project hosted by Clean the World brings attendees together over breakfast Friday morning to assemble hygiene kits that will then be provided to underprivileged members of the Orlando community. Carestream Dental will also be accepting donations on behalf of Clean the World, or attendees can donate unused toothbrushes, toothpaste and dental floss in designated drop-off boxes to be used in future kits.
Relax, It’s Florida
Orlando in November, what’s not to love? In addition to the sunshine and warm weather, the beautiful Orlando World Center Marriott is a self-contained tropical paradise. For those who wish to venture outside the hotel, Carestream Dental intentionally left Sunday wide open for attendees to take advantage of all Orlando has to offer. The city’s “Show Your Badge" program lets attendees present their conference registration badge at participating restaurants for special discounts, and the hotel even offers shuttles to and from Disney World.
