Annual Session offers course on the economy

San Francisco—Learn how the economy is affecting dentistry from a panel of expert dental economists at Annual Session.

Has the Economic Downturn Changed Dentistry Forever? will be presented Oct. 18 from 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m. and shed new light on the correlation between the decline in dental incomes and decreased utilization of dental care. There is no fee for the course and it is worth two and a half hours of continuing education credit.

“There isn’t anybody who hasn’t been touched by the recession,” said Dr. Mark Zust, chair of the Council on Dental Practice. “This course is a unique opportunity for dentists to hear from dental economic experts exactly why the numbers on their books don’t look like they did in previous years. Dentists will take away information that can be personalized to their own experience and that fits into the bigger picture of how the economy affected dentistry as a whole.” 

Marko Vujicic, managing vice president of the ADA Health Policy Resources Center, will be among the panel members. The course will be moderated by a member of Council on Dental Practice.
