What a remarkable convention filled to the brim with dental knowledge, fellowship, and fun! Our corporate staff and dentists had the pleasure of attending the American Dental Association’s (ADA) SmileCon 2021 in beautiful Las Vegas last week! 

The convention was held at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and had over 10,000 attendees with 300 exhibitors! Our team attended CE courses, business in dentistry courses, and interacted with the other dental members from thousands of other practices across the country. 

The ADA had a new take on their typical annual meeting and created an immersive experience centered around the attendee. There were incredible speakers, Smile lounge games, creative sessions, and even a scavenger hunt! 

Thank you to the entire ADA staff, its volunteers, and the sponsors who hosted such an incredible week of learning, playing, and living dentistry! It truly made us smile! We can’t wait for the ADA SmileCon 2022 in Houston, see y’all there! 

At Lane & Associates, our team is constantly seeking new and informative educational opportunities within the dental industry. Our dental company frequently attends the ADA (American Dental Association) Conferences and Dentrix Best of Dentistry conventions throughout the year.

Over time, our dental Office Managers and Regional Directors have had the opportunity to become certified Dentrix Masters! Two of our Regional Directors, Brandy Pearce and LaVerne McNeil, have even been mentioned in the Dentrix Mastery Tracks articles and front-page news!

Brandy Pearce has been a loyal Lane & Associates employee for over 14 years and is seen above on the cover of Dentrix magazine. When asked how becoming a Dentrix specialist has improved her career, Brandy states, “Besides feeling more confident in my own personal knowledge of Dentrix, I love to see the excitement of fellow employees when I can teach them something new in Dentrix.” Check out her article online about what Dentrix Mastery Tracks has meant to her.

LaVerne McNeil, seen below, has been with Lane & Associates Family Dentistry for over 10 years and was mentioned in the Fall 2016 Dentrix Mastery Tracks Spotlight! LaVerne states, “This has been an exciting experience for me to be on the ground floor of new software for our offices and help the staff see the benefits of using Dentrix. There is so much that Dentrix has to offer that by challenging myself with the Dentrix Mastery Tracks tests, I can see where I need improvement and find tips to help our offices.” Check out her article on why she decided to start the Mastery Tracks program here.

We are so proud of our many employees at Lane & Associates that have completed the Dentrix Mastery Tracks courses and become certified to better understand our dental software – assisting our dental staff to significantly improve our patients’ experiences is their number one priority! After all, at Lane & Associates, We love to make you smile!
