Maximizing the early years of your dental career

A dentist coming into the workforce out of school today has a lot of decisions to make in terms of their future and business decisions. To help with this, CDA Practice Support is hosting a two-day Smart Dentist Training titled “Maximize Your First Three Years” at CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry in Anaheim.

Held at the Hilton Anaheim Hotel on Saturday, May 2, and Sunday, May 3, new dentists will get training in everything from building an online reputation using basic marketing platforms to contract and lease negotiation strategies for practice startup or acquisition.

Dentistry has changed a lot in recent years due to shifts in the dental insurance marketplace and a variety of other factors. This lecture series will put the business landscape of the profession into perspective by increasing a dentist’s understanding of the nuances of a career in dentistry and guide them toward achieving professional success.

Attendees will hear from industry experts (legal and financial experts, Practice Advisors and more) on valuable skills such as:

  • Communication and interpersonal skills;
  • Marketing and establishing yourself in the community;
  • Risks associated with social media;
  • Strategic planning and critical thinking;
  • Avoiding legal minefields in the dental practice;
  • Defining a plan to assist in student loan debt; and
  • Personal and professional financial tips.
