VIPS Dental Annual Meeting 2016 is Going to be Awesome!

A scene from a past Annual Meeting at the Ranch

Being a part of an organization like VIPS Dental has many advantages, one in particular is the opportunity for dental continuing education that meets the needs of dentists who own and operate a mobile surgical practice.

Annual Meeting 2016

Each year, VIPS Dental organizes and hosts a multi-day Annual Meeting exclusively for VIPS doctors.  The meeting is designed to advance and uphold our high standards for patient safety, clinical excellence and responsible business ownership. This year, we will hold the Annual Meeting at the beautiful Cooper Hotel & Spa.

Safety First- Dental Continuing Education

The prevailing topic of Annual Meeting 2016 is “Safety”.  When you think about safety, the first thought that comes to mind is patient safety, and that is as it should be.  Patient safety should always be priority one in any dental practice, and is of special consideration for a practice which provides moderate IV sedation.

VIPS training programs provide one-on-one access to some of the best minds in dental anesthesia, thanks to our small class-size. This year’s Annual Meeting will provide expert instruction with individual access to national leaders in dental anesthesia and dental implants.

Other safety topics planned for Annual Meeting 2016 include Employee Safety and Compliance Initiatives specifically developed for the VIPS Dental practice model, and protecting the safety and health of your business.

Focus on the Patient- Leave the Management to Us

Hundreds of dentists across the country practice, at least part time, as a single provider in a traveling or mobile surgery model.  Many find the challenges of running such a practice to be overwhelming and time consuming to manage.  Outside of world-class dental continuing education, VIPS Dental practice owners find immense value in the support, expertise and training that comes with being a part of this organization.  The practice management and support available through VIPS Dental affords our dentists to keep their focus where it needs to be- on the patient.
