General Meetings

  • Wednesday, March 11, 2015 - The Changing Dental Care System – What Every Dentists Needs to Know. Speaker Marko Vujicic, PhD.

    CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

    Dentistry is a profession in transition. Several major shifts are occurring simultaneously to reshape the U.S. dental care sector. Utilization of dental care is down among adults and up among children – and not because of the Great Recession. New models of dental care delivery are emerging. A new wave of health care consumerism is changing how the population ‘shops’ for care. On top of all this, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is bringing long-term change to the U.S. health care system. With its triple aim improving health, enhancing the patient experience, and controlling cost, several aspects of the ACA have potentially significant implications for dentistry. This engaging and profound presentation will provide an overview of the changing dental landscape and what the future environment holds. The opportunities for the dental profession in this changing landscape will be discussed.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

    1. To understand important structural changes that have been occurring in the dental care sector.
    2. To understand the main factors driving the change in dental care utilization in the US.
    3. To understand how the Affordable Care Act will impact dentistry.
    4. To determine how dentists could leverage new opportunities in tomorrow’s health care environment.
    5. To learn where more resources from the ADA are available.
