Special Orthodontic Track Available at Global Oral Health Summit

Orthodontists and their staff face a unique set of challenges unlike any other specialty—working with young patients, dealing with their parents and planning treatments that span well over a year. With that in mind, Carestream Dental is featuring a special track of courses just for orthodontic professionals at the Global Oral Health Summit.

The Summit, hosted by Carestream Dental, is a new comprehensive educational event that brings orthodontic as well as dental and OMS professionals together under one roof. This year’s event takes place Nov. 10-13, 2016, at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.

When not networking with colleagues from other specialties, orthodontic professionals have the chance to focus on topics specific to their field by following the orthodontic track. In-depth lectures and hands-on sessions reviewing CS OrthoTrac practice management software, as well as courses taught by well-known doctors and consultants, give orthodontists and staff insight to new trends, technology and techniques.  Below is just a sample of what attendees can expect to learn:

Software-Focused Courses

  • “Turn the Tables: Increase Efficiency with Shortcuts and Tips:” This interactive workshop introduces useful keystroke shortcuts and trainer tips for increasing efficiency when navigating through CS OrthoTrac

  • “Raise the Stakes for Your Practice–Treatment Charting:” Doctors, treatment coordinators and clinical team members alike benefit from this workshop that touches on CS OrthoTrac customized views, configuring pre-defined chart notes, drawing elastics and saving elastic configuration and history, to name just a few.

  • “It All Happens Here! Efficient Treatment Planning:” Administrative team members learn how to save time and improve workflow by creating and editing CS OrthoTrac treatment plans; understanding and interpreting timelines; and factoring in last minute changes and emergencies to planning.

  • “Sweeten the Pot: Managing Accounts Receivable:” Perfect for administrative team members, this lecture class reviews managing and reducing outstanding accounts receivables and maximizing cash flow.

  • “Don’t Leave Anything to Chance; a Dynamic Observation System:” CS OrthoTrac is equipped with many ways to help practices stay connected with patients until the time is right to begin treatment. Learn to attract, engage, track and manage a dynamic observation system to ensure a winning hand every time.
