Hear What Attendees are Saying…
“I love the fact that my wife gets to meet the people I talk about, and to understand better why the Academy fuels my passion for dentistry. We had opportunities to relax as a couple and with other couples. The information presented in the courses was cutting edge and informative. The social events were fun and a great opportunity to get to know the spouses of dentists you have seen and gotten to be friends with. I can’t wait until next year!”
“Having the opportunity to interact with faculty, lab technicians and my conversation with Dr. Dawson himself [was my favorite part of this year’s Retreat]… Attending this conference has helped reinvigorate my passion for dentistry and WHY I do what I do.”
“The program this year was truly outstanding: I will always remember this as a truly significant experience in my career.”
“Fellowship [was my favorite part of this year’s retreat]. I find this group of people be both professionally and personally inspiring. High marks to Kelly Verber and Michelle Wolfe for making my wife feel like “one of the gang”. We are already looking forward to next year.”

The Orthodontic-Restorative Interface: Problems, solutions and working together
By Dr. Ian Buckle & Dr. Alberto Canabez Berthet
Complete patients require complete solutions and that often involves working as part of a team. However, communication between team members can often be challenging and details are often “lost in translation”. Orthodontists are an incredibly important part of our team but may not have the same goals that we do as Dawson dentists.
So how do we ensure that we achieve the results that our patients deserve with predictability, efficiency and productivity?
- Getting started – agreeing goals
- Additional records for orthodontic patients
- The role of splint therapy
- Joint treatment planning – the key to success
- Organising the workflow
- The role of GDP orthodontics
- Corticotomies, TADs and the role of surgery.
- Achieving Predictable Interdisciplinary results
C-squared: the formula to beauty
By Scott Finlay, DDS, FAGD, FAACD & Nelson Rego, CDT, AAACD
Ceramist and clinician excellence hinges upon the synergy of treatment planning and communication. Contemporary standards demand the compounding of treatment modalities and material science to provide predictable, durable and ultra conservative treatment solutions for patients.
- Communication and Tx Planning protocols between the clinician and the ceramist regardless of location
- Benefits of limited tooth movement to facilitate minimal invasive restorative techniques
- Tolerances of ultra conservative/no prep restorations, when they are indicated and when they are not and how much prep is enough
Implant Surgery for the General Practitioner
By Dr. John Cranham
Implant dentistry continues to be the fastest growing segment of dentistry. While most restorative dentists have become comfortable with the prosthetic component of this care, many are left wondering what it would take to add the surgical component to their practice. Is their a “surgical sweet spot” for the GP, that would allow them to keep a percentage of their implant surgeries in house? If so, what cases are appropriate for us to do, and where and what training should we take to be fully prepared? This presentation will show Dr. Cranham’a journey to placing approximately 40% of the implants he treatment plans, and why this additional knowledge has improved all aspects of his implant care.
- Why every implant surgery should be planned by the restorative dentist.
- How to design and select the appropriate surgical guide for precise implant placement, and why this is the key to create an optimum final restoration from a biologic, esthetic and occlusal standpoint.
- When and why we should consider a guided surgical protocol.
- How your Dawson training has prepared you for the most difficult part of the planning process.
- What cases are ideal for the GP to start with, what you can work towards, and what cases probably should be referred.
- Where and what should a GP go and do, to get the necessary surgical training.
- What is the ROI (return on investment) a GP can expect from placing a reasonable amount of dental implants.
Being all that we can be. Changing perspective to change reality
By Kirk Behrendt
During this valuable day we will examine what it truly means to be all that we can be for our patients. We use words like excellence, commitment and service, but do we really give all that we can give to the people we serve?
See how some of the best dental practices are tapping unused resources to deepen their connections with patients, increase their personal passion, optimize their performance, increase their production and boost their profitability in the current economy. Without the proper focus it is easy to experience burnout. See the new techniques and business model that complete clinician teams are using to truly be all they can be for the people they serve.
- Diagnose the elements that make a successful practice and promote continual growth
- See the steps to create more significant and powerful relationships with patients
- Preparing for the “stage” of great performance and how to set your practice up to succeed
- Use a step-by-step diagnostic tool to identify (and correct) specific areas of the practice that suppress production and limit new patient growth
- See how to authentically inspire your team to stay “fully engaged” with patients.
- How to produce more as a team and “let go” to grow
- Managing the emotional undertones and physical systems for optimal performance
- Examine the secrets of coaching your team to an inspired and winning season every year
