Newtown, Pennsylvania, August 29, 2014 – Beginning this week, oral healthcare practitioners will have a new option for online continuing education that supports collaboration between the general dentist and periodontist. AEGIS Communications is pleased to announce that its affiliate company, Dental Learning Systems, has recently partnered with the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) to provide continuing education through a customized online portal at CDEWorld.
This new program is part of the AAP’s ongoing effort to bring general practitioners and periodontists into collaborative working relationships to ensure the best possible outcomes for patients. The partnership with CDEWorld, which has more than 18,000 active members, is the next step to expand the organization’s message to a larger audience.
“Collaboration among the dental team is crucial to successful patient care,” says Stuart Froum, DDS, president of the American Academy of Periodontology, clinical professor and director of clinical research at New York University’s Department of Periodontics and Implant Dentistry. “The AAP has long advocated for general dentists and periodontists to partner in an effort to establish the most effective and efficient treatment plans for their shared patients. By working with CDEWorld, we will be able to continue our commitment to collaborative care.
One of the fastest growing dental education sites, CDEWorld works closely with university, association, and industry partners to provide high-quality resources that meet dental professionals’ needs. CDEWorld facilitates education by developing, organizing, and presenting a broad array of courses, events, and webinars through one accessible site.
“We’re very excited to have the privilege of featuring the AAP portal,” says Daniel W. Perkins, CEO of Dental Learning Systems, LLC, the developer of CDEWorld. “This relationship strengthens our commitment to partnering with the highest level of professional organizations in a quality educational environment.”
