I thought the program exceeded my expectations. I loved the varied speakers + learned so much info that I can incorporate into my pediatric dental practice. Hearing not only from other pediatric dentists, but form sleep disorder specialists, airway specialists, oral surgeons, breastfeeding experts, myofunctional therapists – gave me a much better understanding of how to evaluate my patients. I also learned a lot about perfecting my frenectomy procedure.
I have said a million times over that the ALSC Symposium is the most enriching event I attend annually. The colleagues that attend this meeting are top-notch. Everyone who attends is looking to help better the knowledge base and improve the standard of care to arrive at a level of best practices. This Symposium meets and exceeds my expectations every year. Just when I thought it could not get any better, the ALSC Symposium continues to deliver.
I came into this inaugural conference not knowing what to expect. I was overwhelmed by the amount of information I learned. The intermixing of different specialties was a wonderful experience. I am looking forward to participating in the future. Having non-doctor clinicians was helpful to bring together the “big picture.”
Great program overall! It was well organized and ran on time. Presenters were all knowledgeable, humble, and wanting to continue to learn things themselves. Love the low egos in this Study Club! Food and beverages were great. It was nice having everything in one, nice, convenient area of the hotel.
Fabulous meeting. I’ve been attending CE courses for 20 years. Best one and most applicable ever! Great presentations, very helpful slides and pictures. Engaging educators with useful educational information for my practice.
I really enjoyed collaborating with other dentists who perform frenectomies. Getting advice and exchanging tips and ideas. I also enjoyed hearing from the OMT’s and IBCLC’s.
I think the program was very informative + great to hear from all the presenters. It’s wonderful to have so many like-minded individuals together trying to make a difference.
What a great course – every time I come, I learn more and refine my techniques; it’s the latest info with the top people here in the field. Please continue.
I thought there was lots of great information that will be helpful to my practice at home immediately. I will be back next year! Thank you!
I love this program, this group of people, their knowledge and compassion. Looking forward to next year.
