In any given month, 139 million consumers use the Internet to seek healthcare information, according to comScore, a company that tracks trends in the digital world. With the world going digital, and practice to patient communications have been forever changed by new technologies and communication channels, many dentists and orthodontists are asking themselves, “How is my practice catering to these online patients?”
New home - Bellevue!
We're really excited about the 2013 Pacific Northwest Dental Conference! For the first time in its storied history, the conference is moving to Bellevue, Washington. Classes will be held in the Hyatt Regency Bellevue (our Headquarters Hotel) and in the nearby Meydenbauer Center. Shuttle service between the two venues will make it a snap to get back and forth, and longer times between lectures and workshops will allow ample time for shopping at the Exhibit Hall or a leisurely stroll.
We've posted a complete list of speakers and topics here — it's an exciting group we're presenting, and we know you're going to get a tremendous value for your full conference badge. This year, you'll be able to complete up to 15 credits of CDE over the two-day period.
Stay tuned, and Remember — Save the Date!
In the coming months, we'll be loading up the pages of the website with information about all aspects of the Conference.
