Those of you who know me realize that I spent my early adulthood wearing an army uniform. I invested hundreds of hours in the 1970s and 1980s learning about (as it was then) the Soviet Union’s approach to fighting a war.
The invasion of Ukraine has been an awful event and a humanitarian disaster, and clearly it will take decades to rebuild the country. What has been noteworthy is how little Russian tactics have evolved since the 1980s, and that their mistakes in this campaign are almost the same ones the USSR would have made four decades ago. Pictures of burning Russian tanks on CNN are a stark reminder of what happens when people do not innovate.
Fortunately, dentistry is not mired in the past like the Russians seem to be. I had a conversation with our upcoming webinar guest Linda Miles, who has been working with dentists since the 1960s, and she reminded me of how successful practices require an artistic melding of the innovative and the traditional. While some elements of dentistry have been revolutionized over my lifetime, other things like good verbal skills from doctor and staff have not.
Discussing what has changed, as well as fundamentals that have not, is going to be a cornerstone of our webinar with Linda, and the chance to learn from her should not be missed.
Registration is happening at a brisk pace for this event. With five weeks to go before we welcome Linda, we already have over 1,000 registrants, and we are on pace to shatter our previous attendance record. You can reserve your place HERE
. We go live May 5 at 8:00 pm Eastern / 5:00 pm Pacific.
Thanks as always for allowing us to be part of your dental world.
