What Is Peer-to-Peer Knowledge Exchange?

Outside of your own practice, how often do you bump into other professionals who understand exactly what you do each day? Who can sympathize with the challenges you face in the oral health industry or offer advice on what’s worked for them in their practice? At the 2018 Global Oral Health Summit, not only will you find yourself among hundreds of professional attendees just like you, but you’ll also meet with speakers, consultants, Carestream Dental staff and exhibitors who all understand the ins and outs of your day-to-day work.

Some conferences call it networking, but at the Summit it’s a peer-a-peer knowledge exchange. The Summit is your opportunity to trade software tips and insight about the industry, not just business cards. Sitting in on software-specific courses, attendees learn side-by-side with their fellow software users. It’s here where professionals from similar backgrounds and experiences can share tips and tricks and the secrets for what’s worked for them in their practices. Or, at a consultant-taught session—which covers industry-relevant topics such as case acceptance, patient consultations, marketing and patient care and treatment—attendees can mix and mingle with professionals from outside their specialties to build their referral network.

Peer-to-peer knowledge exchange can be as business-like or as casual as attendees choose. Opening/closing receptions and lunch presentations present an opportunity to meet other attendees, consultants and Carestream Dental leadership in a more formal setting. On the other hand, breaks and exhibits in between courses and fun social events—such as fitness activities and volunteer opportunities—provide a relaxed atmosphere for making new friends.

However you choose to interact with other attendees, peer-to-peer knowledge exchange at the Summit equips you with new ideas and new industry contacts to help you in your practice. Explore all the ways the Summit lets attendees connect here. The Summit takes place just outside Dallas, Texas, at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center, Nov. 9-11. Register today.

Intraoral scanning. 3D printing. Laser dentistry. Dentistry is changing at an accelerated pace, and it’s critical that practices keep up with technology in order to stay competitive and relevant.

However, as technology becomes increasingly complex, obtaining new equipment often presents a significant financial strain.
