The orthodontic profession is one driven by education. Doctors and staff must be constantly learning in order to keep up with the latest technology, clinical techniques, and more. Continuing education (CE) credits help the orthodontic professional maintain, develop, or increase knowledge, but these events are often attended strictly as a requirement for professional development. American Orthodontics (AO) decided to take the idea of CE a step further by not only offering CE, but also once-in-a-lifetime experiences. This concept became AO’s Ultimate CE.
Each AO Ultimate CE event features informative clinical lectures by expert speakers covering a wide range of topics, including treatment techniques, practice management, and more. Each of these intriguing lectures is complemented by an amazing entertainment experience.
All of the 2015 Ultimate CE Events held so far have sold out. These include events at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Dallas, Texas, and the Indianapolis 500. Here’s a detailed look at upcoming AO Ultimate CE for 2015.
