Oral surgeons and staff are invited to register for the newly revamped OMS Summit, hosted by Carestream Dental. The Summit, previously known as the OMS Users Conference, helps surgeons and staff elevate their practices to new heights with new attendees, new speakers and new networking opportunities.
Taking place Jan. 24-25, 2015, in Atlanta, Ga., at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel, attendees will notice several changes to the new format of the OMS Summit. For example, the Summit is now open to all professionals in the field of oral surgery, not only users of Carestream Dental’s CS WinOMS, Windent and CS OMS Imaging software. Also new for 2015, doctors are complimentary.
“In June, we announced big changes to our Dental Summit, and we’re just as excited to let oral surgeons and staff know about similar improvements to January 2015’s OMS Summit,” Mary Conditt, director of clinical affairs, U.S. digital, Carestream Dental. “They’ll notice a new mix of attendees, new speakers, new topics and even fun networking opportunities.”
One of the biggest enhancements to the OMS Summit is the Implant Treatment Coordinator (ITC) track. This selection of educational sessions covers topics such as the importance of an ITC in a practice; choosing the right candidate; and effective treatment plan presentation. The track is presented by Gold Level sponsor OMS3.
The new track, as well as all other educational sessions, will be kicked off by keynote speaker Bernie Stolz, Fortunate Management, addressing “Breakthrough Oral Surgery Marketing.” In a society where patients have more choices than ever before, this opening session highlights the most effective strategies for attracting new patients and keeping them for life.
Additionally, new speakers will address industry topics relevant to all professionals in the OMS field. A few of the expert speakers included are Michael Pikos, D.D.S, of the Pikos Institute, discussing immediate implant reconstruction; Timothy Hess, D.D.S., addressing facial aesthetics and looking beyond enamel and gingiva; Jeffrey Price, D.D.S., with tips for oral radiologists on how to master cone beam computed tomography; and David Harris, a dental private investigator, speaking on how to avoid fraud within a practice. Other topics include teambuilding; working with referrals; and maximizing the potential of the entire team.
Of course, sessions are also scheduled to train and enhance the experience of returning Carestream Dental OMS software users. Additionally, the course “Taking your Practice to the Cloud,” highlights all the benefits of leveraging CS WinOMS Cloud for practice management and imaging software. CS WinOMS Cloud gives practices the ability to store and share 2D/3D images between offices; offers HIPAA-compliant, secure data backup; and allows for 24/7 access from almost any Web-enabled device, to name just a few features.
These educational sessions provide attendees with the potential to earn eight Continuing Education (CE) credits over the course of the weekend. An additional four credits may be available to those who attend the pre-training on Friday, Jan. 23.
Opening Summit registration to new attendees also means more networking opportunities for surgeons and staff. Events such as Lunch and Learns offer the chance to mingle in a relaxed setting while gaining insider tips and tricks. Additionally, a sophisticated evening at the Summit Reception, featuring a live band, provides doctors and their team both an opportunity to network and relax after a day of educational sessions.
As in the past, the Summit will also host many different OMS technology exhibitors, giving attendees the opportunity to break from educational sessions and explore the latest practice management solutions.
These changes in format and content will also extend to Carestream Dental’s Orthodontic User Conference, now the Orthodontic Summit, March 13-15, 2015, Atlanta, Ga.
