Southwest VA Advanced Seminars Schedule

Seattle Study Club Affiliate in Blacksburg

Southwest VA Advanced Seminars is a local affiliate club of the Seattle Study Club. The focus of the club is on Total Case Management and Treatment Planning, with an emphasis on hygiene and periodontal treatment.

As we settle into the 21st century, technological advances continue to shape a challenging and innovative future for the dental health care profession. How can the demands of this rapidly changing field be met? What skills and knowledge will be necessary to move comfortably into the future? How can all aspects of dentistry, whether periodontics, oral surgery or endodontics, be incorporated into one’s practice, thereby “Bridging the Disciplines?” The answers to these questions are crucial to comprehension of the role continuing education will play in the future of our profession.

We have monthly meetings, September—May. Some meetings are for the dentists, while some are for the entire practice. A Hygiene Study Club meets two (2) times each year. Please contact the office at Blacksburg Office Phone Number 540-951-8777 if you are interested in joining.
