The field of implant dentistry has grown exponentially in the past decade. It is incumbent upon oral and maxillofacial surgeons to present confidence and efficiency in implant placement not only for patients but also referring dentists. 

This course will outline specific strategies to improve the public’s perception of your practice, including how to institute multitier marketing systems to grow the practice. The course will define specific duties of the implant treatment coordinator, including a systematic consultation process and how its role is vital to the health of the practice.

The speaker also will discuss how to position your practice in the community to showcase the vast scope of available treatments and procedures. Discussion will take place on the best use of technology for in-office surgical guides to ensure more efficient and predictable placements.


Annual Meeting Practice Management Courses

Practice Management and Professional Staff Development Sessions at the AAOMS Annual Meeting offer oral and maxillofacial surgeons and their staff the opportunity to earn continuing education credits while improving their practice management knowledge and skills. Topics include coding and reimbursement, communications, emergency preparedness, estate planning, financial management, infection control, legal, marketing and practice building, personnel administration and regulatory requirements.



Webinars are audio-interactive web conferences much like a conference call, but in a more controlled environment. Through Internet access you can follow along visually with the speakers as they go through their presentation and by turning on your speakerphone, you are able to listen to the presentation as well. Participants are able to ask questions throughout the seminar via the telephone or the computer. Listeners can be anywhere and still call in to participate without travel expenses and limited time off from the job. Various Practice Management topics are offered throughout the year for oral and maxillofacial surgeons and their staff.
