DENTSPLY Launches ProficienCE
CE platform helps laboratories plan, market, and host a successful educational event.
DENTSPLY Prosthetics introduces the ProficienCESM Platform for clinical and technical programs, designed to build dental laboratory businesses, strengthen client relationships, and improve patient care through continuing education. ProficienCE is an easy, step-by-step process for planning, marketing, and hosting a successful educational program. By partnering with DENTSPLY Prosthetics, dental laboratories gain access to customizable curricula in fixed and removable prosthetics; educational support for approved speakers and programs in the form of honoraria and travel expenses; and customizable planning and marketing tools. Because DENTSPLY is an American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP) provider, dental technicians who attend a ProficienCE course can receive valuable CE credits. Throughout the process—from planning through tracking their success—dental laboratories work in close partnership with their DENTSPLY Prosthetics representatives. To ease and organize planning, the company offers Hosting a Successful Clinician Education Event for Your Lab, an educational CE guidebook. This comprehensive guide helps laboratories understand the planning, execution, and follow-up phases of an educational event. It is designed to lead laboratories through the steps of planning a program whether they are putting on a program with DENTSPLY Prosthetics or on their own.
