Glidewell announced the continuing education programming for its upcoming 2023 Symposia held in Irvine, Calif.

Glidewell has announced its 2023 Glidewell Symposia program, featuring impactful continuing education opportunities on everything from implant dentistry and dental sleep medicine to digital dentistry and business management.

Held throughout the year at the Glidewell Clinical Education Center in Irvine, California, the program consists of specific two-day events tailored to help dental professionals expand their practice horizons in 2023 and beyond.

“For more than 50 years, our goal at Glidewell has been to assist in better, faster, more accessible care — and we’ve worked toward this objective first as a dental laboratory, then as a materials manufacturer, and today as an education center, research facility, technological innovator and so much more,” said Jim Glidewell, CDT, Glidewell founder and president. “Having worked with tens of thousands of dentists over the years, we have unique insight into the everyday challenges of the practitioner, and we strive to do everything in our power to help dentists solve those issues, grow their practices, and treat more patients in need.”

The Glidewell Symposium was launched in 2017 to help dental professionals learn new skills to make dental treatment more predictable, efficient, and reliable.

Since its inaugural event, Glidewell has been applying the feedback received each year to create a better experience. Now, with even more clinical topics, business advice, leadership development opportunities, and hands-on workshops, the 2023 schedule provides a wide variety of events for dental professionals at any career stage.

The upcoming calendar includes the following:

  • Sleep: Building Your Practice with Dental Sleep Medicine (April 21-22)
    Learn the modern dentist’s role in sleep dentistry.
  • Women on the Rise: Elevating Digital Dentistry (September 22-23)
    Incorporate digital technology into every aspect of your practice.

While each event is distinct, all symposia have one thing in common: a two-day educational format. On the first day, attendees will experience fast-paced, main podium presentations from experts in the field. On the second day, participants can choose from various focused lectures and hands-on workshops that immediately teach implementable skills.

“The mission of the Glidewell Symposia is to provide focused educational programs to keep dentists informed about the latest techniques, technologies, and trends in dentistry — with a level of insight unique to the world’s largest dental lab,” said Glidewell. “Each event offers impactful content and resources with takeaways that you can immediately integrate into your practice. I invite dental professionals to come join us.”

Glidewell Symposia are for dental professionals and chairside and front-office team members. Pre-registration is available for all events. Tuition is $495 for each two-day event, and attendees can use promo code GL23 to receive $100 off registration.

Tuition includes complimentary breakfast and lunch on both days, a campus tour, a hosted cocktail party, and dinner on Friday. Participants will also be able to browse interactive exhibits during both days of the event. Due to limited space, attendees are encouraged to register or preregister early to secure their seats.
