New Dentist Corner August 2017

With summer in full swing, we are looking forward to the New Dentist Boat Party on Saturday, August 12th. This year, we are changing it up a bit and having it at night, from 5:00 – 8:00pm. We will still have plenty of sun to soak up AND be able to see the sunset! We appreciate our gracious sponsors, Wealth Strategies, Burkhart and DJ Bhola who helped make this event possible. Evites have already been sent out, so all you need to do is check YES!
Thank you to Dr. Dale Gallagher who graciously hosted a fantastic lake party in June for CADS members. The weather, food and company were perfect. Dr. Conley was excited to meet a few of the new members who attended and can’t wait to see more of ya’ll at the upcoming events.
As always, if you have any suggestions or would like to help in any way, contact us at cadsnewdentsts@gmail.com.

Our Study Club

 

In this summer’s messages, I attempted to frame the current challenges and virtues of organized dentistry, and briefly described the efforts we are making at the local level to respond to these issues.  In this month’s issue, I would like to formally introduce one of our new initiatives: the CADS Study Club.

 

Study Clubs are a fantastic way to broaden our knowledge of the dental field, and enable us to learn from each other’s failures and successes.  They are also a great way for us to connect with each other and build a referral network with those we know are trying their best to care for their patients.  However, many study clubs are very expensive, exclusive to a small group, and even difficult to attend due to location.  We have decided to start our own Study Clubs at CADS, with intention of them being affordable, open to all CADS members, and offered at multiple locations within the Capital Area.

 

This year, we are starting a single pilot club to optimize our process, and then intend on opening multiple clubs next year.  Our first session will be held on Saturday November 19th, with a guest lecture from Dr. Bill Robbins, which will focus on taking proper records (models/photos/etc.) On Saturday December 10, Dr. Robbins will return to discuss global diagnosis and treatment planning.  We believe that these first two sessions will serve as a foundation for the third and fourth sessions, to be held in February and June of 2017, allowing all Study Club members to share their own cases and discuss the challenges and successes they have had with them.

 

We will be holding the Study Club at the Heritage Plaza Building (centrally located at Mopac/Spicewood Springs), and will have lunch provided at each session.  Our intention is to have the first two sessions more structured with lecture, and then let the group lead us in a more informal discussion as to the direction/focus of the spring sessions.  Additionally, the total fee for club membership will only be $150 per CADS member for the entire year, which is dramatically lower than the cost for any other study club offered in the Capital Area.  Please save these dates in your calendars if you are interested in joining, and look for electronic communication coming soon for registration details!

We had such a great time at our October event at Peter Pan Mini Golf!  It was so great seeing all of you again!  Thank you Sean Regan, John Phelps, Alan Clark, and Chris Maurer, along with the rest of the Phelps Commercial Realty team, for making this event a reality.

This is a great opportunity for all of us to recognize one of our very own CADS board members who has consistently proven her dedication to this organization and a passion for serving others that is unparalleled, all while being a wife, a mother, a professional and a business owner!  Please take a moment to congratulate Dr. Trisha Kimes who will be receiving the Golden Apple Award at the 2015 ADA conference.  We are so proud of her and grateful for everything she’s done with CADS and beyond.  Thank you Trisha!

It’s November already and the holidays are just around the corner – sounds like a great reason to play some golf AND give back to those in need.  Get your friends together and join us for the 2015 CADF Golf Classic on November 20th by going to http://www.capitalareadentalfoundation.org/ and registering today!

We are excited for all the new events we have planned for the 2015-2016 year!  If you are interested in helping with CADS in any way or have any suggestions, feel free to contact us at cadsnewdentists@gmail.com.

Our annual Fall Pub Crawl was a hit!  Thanks to our sponsors:  Brian Novy with The Brian Novy Company, DJ Bhola CPA, PC, and Michael Zuelke with Burkhart Dental for making this happen.

 

The Pub Crawl was a great event, but it’s only just the beginning!

 

October is going to get busy while you’re at work so come unwind with us with a few rounds of Putt-Putt at Peter Pan Mini-Golf.  This classic Austin landmark is famous for its low-key environment, intricate sculptures, and invoking a great sense of nostalgia all while sharing a few drinks with your fellow dentists.  Be on the lookout for the Evite coming soon!

 

We are excited for all the new events we have planned for the 2015-2016 year!  If you are interested in helping our New Dentist Committee plan social events, or help with social media, feel free to contact us.
