12 Dec The Implant Experts’ CPD Conference 2017
CPD Made Easy:
At the beginning of August, we received an email from The Implant Experts inviting us to a conference they host each year ‘CPD Made Easy’.
The Implant Experts of Maidstone in Kent are Pearl veterans, adopting the system when they opened the practice in 2014. We were excited to support their conference as we were looking to learning more about the dental implantology sector.
After a fair bit of preparation readying our banners, updating our leaflets and hauling our crates of water (brandishing the Pearl Dental logo) into the car, we made our way down from our office in Leicester to the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel in Kent.
This is the first conference we’ve attended as a company in recent years and we thoroughly enjoyed the day. It was great to meet other suppliers from a variety of companies within dental industry such as Dentsply Sirona, GC Europe, 3M and Smile Design. After we learnt all we could about advances in dental equipment and X-rays we got on with what we do best. Talking about Pearl.
It’s all about Pearl
Being a relatively small dental software supplier, we we’re surprised to find how widely known Pearl was amongst the dentists and nurses at the event. It wasn’t just the recognition that left smiles on our faces, but the positive comments about Pearl software we received throughout the day, between talks on how to deal with medical emergencies and dento-legal advice.
We were happy to catch up with a few familiar faces, Pearl users from practices across the country. It was a great opportunity to ask about how they’re finding the recent Pearl updates and to introduce them to the new system Pearl Dental. We also introduced Pearl to several practice owners whose current practice management solution was failing them. We spoke to a number of dentists with a variety of starting points. Some were only using paper. Others felt their software providers had failed to keep up with advances in technology, and a few wanted better software support for those days when ‘computer says no’.
Success and sandwiches
Over lunch Ben squeezed in a 10-minute demo for those wanting to know a little bit more about the new system (between scoffing sandwiches and making tea). We’re pleased to say they included a couple of practices that have now become ‘official Pearl users’ and are getting on great with their new system!
We’d like to give a big thank you to The Implant Experts for hosting a great event and allowing us to be a part of it. We met some amazing dental teams, learnt a lot, talked a lot and ate a lot. Bring on next years conference!
