The Knowledge Exchange

A major reason for attending any conference is for educational purposes. The Global Oral Health Summit has some of the best and brightest industry speakers, trainers and doctors lined up to guide attendees on their educational journey, but opportunities also exist outside the classroom for people to learn from their peers in the industry.

Carestream Dental calls it the “knowledge exchange;” the concept is similar to The Exchange, the online software users’ community, where attendees/users are can ask questions and learn from each other’s experiences. The Summit offers several spaces for attendees to meet with their colleagues and exchange ideas, tips and tricks and suggestions for how they can take their practices to the next level:

Hackathon

This mass brainstorming session is a collaborative effort with other oral health care professionals to find solutions to the challenges practices face every day. Innovators from MIT will guide participants in problem-solving scenarios to encourage the free flow of ideas and communication about the future of the oral health industry. In particular, the hackathon will address boosting the efficiency of day-to-day operations, enhancing the patient experience and improving their practices.

Wine Downs

At the end of the day, attendees can meet with colleagues from their specialty at orthodontic, oral surgery or general dentistry “wine downs.” These sessions put attendees in contact with other professionals in their field in a happy hour networking setting. Also, attendees can hear from Carestream Dental specialty directors who will take questions and preview the latest advancements from Carestream Dental that will affect how practices work.

Don’t miss any of these chances to exchange knowledge with your peers. Learn about other opportunities to learn from and network with other attendees here.
