Ready to jump-start your SmileCon learning?

The new Bridge to SmileCon Webinar Series will offer free continuing education courses by speakers from SmileCon 2022 Houston and SmileCon 2023 Orlando from January through August.

The monthly series will cover a wide spectrum of clinical and practice management topics for both dentists and their teams, providing a sneak peek into the SmileCon 2023 learning experience. Each webinar is worth one CE credit.

"We are so excited to offer the Bridge to SmileCon Webinar Series," said Melanie R. Love, D.D.S., chair of SmileCon 2023. "It is a great way to experience the path to SmileCon, and our attendees will not only interact with amazing speakers but also gain understanding of a wide range of topics. The courses are just the beginning of the SmileCon experience, leading up to the in-person sessions, where the excitement will continue to build, along with the knowledge started with the Bridge to SmileCon webinars."

In the first webinar, Bridge to SmileCon: Practical Oral Pathology, Ashleigh Briody, D.D.S., will explain how to perform thorough oral cancer screenings and recognize the features of precancerous and cancerous lesions. Being able to identify these lesions can minimize surgical impact and, ultimately, save patient lives.

The webinar will take place at noon CST Jan. 17. Other upcoming courses include:

  • Feb. 8: Practice Management: How to Help Your Doctor Put Together a 5-Star Team and Keep Them Happy, presented by Denise Williams-Jones.

  • March 8: Patients First — How to Create Long-Lasting Relationships, presented by Bob Kulhan.

  • April 29: Restorative Dentistry: Minimally Invasive Bonded Bridges, presented by Jose-Luis Ruiz, D.D.S.

  • May 16: Basic Science: Systemic Cyclones, presented by Amber Riley.

    More courses will be added through August.

"The Bridge to SmileCon series of online learning will take you on a journey through the entire dental office, from clinical pathology to providing patient-first experiences in your office, dental team excellence, pharmacology for all, social media training, esthetic clinical bonding techniques, and more," said Nanette C. Tertel, D.D.S., CE chair for SmileCon 2023. "Each month will highlight another facet of your dental office experiences and engage your entire team in their learning journey."
