"I want to thank Heraeus for being committed to education first and foremost,” says Newton Fahl, DDS, MS. “The materials and techniques … follow the philosophy of investing in education and helping promote education worldwide. This is the key thing about dentistry that I think should be noted and should be followed as a role model. Heraeus enhances the quality of the learning process and of education amongst the profession."
The Heraeus Education Web page is indeed chock full of a selection of timely, relevant, and current CE topics; impression techniques, restorative procedures, whitening materials, bonding, preventive care, and more are all covered. The site offers topics of interest to almost every member of the dental and laboratory team, each of which comes in an intuitive, easy-to-use format:
- Educational Webinars discuss the latest restorative and prosthetic materials and technologies. Using highly efficient materials and techniques, world-renowned speakers teach the newest strategies for transforming patients' lives and growing a practice or laboratory.
- Heraeus publishes numerous Clinical Articles each year; some offer CE credit, while others might demonstrate a particular technique or shed more light on an individual case. These articles serve as a user-friendly means to learn about innovative products, new techniques, and tips for improving productivity and patient outcomes.
- Dental teams also have access to product demonstrations and CE courses through Heraeus Podcasts. These simple and effective tools can help to improve clinical skills and prepare for upcoming cases. Heraeus’ iPod programming is a unique and convenient way to access free CE content at no cost.* The courses are updated throughout the year and can easily save teams thousands of dollars in annual CE fees.
- Heraeus also has produced a number of short video clips that educate and inspire. Quick technique tips as well as information on Heraeus products can be found here.
All of these courses can be completed in the comfort and convenience of your home or office, and may help dental professionals meet their CE requirements at little or no cost.
