"I really enjoyed the webinar last friday. I watched it with two other dentists and the three of us agreed this was the way to go." - Donald W. Stewart DDS
"My staff and I "attended" the webinar last night and the overall thought was that it was very worthwhile. It was nice to not have to take a whole day out of the practice, with lost production, to travel to either Portland or Seattle for CE and then spend a small fortune for gas, parking, and food for everyone. This way, we had dinner together, participated in the webinar, and then made it home at a very reasonable hour, after a productive day seeing patients. A very effective staff training experience. Well done!" - David E. Houten DDS
