Spear Study Club Symposium, Scottsdale AZ

This past weekend, Dr Benson attended a seminar for Spear Study Club Leaders in Scottsdale AZ.  This was his second Leadership Training at Spear, and his third trip to the Spear Campus. He always returns with wonderful things to say about the training, and great insight on what is going on in the dental industry around the country.  Below he wrote a quick recap on his visit, and if you have any other questions regarding Spear or Study Clubs, please feel free to give him a call! 




As some of you may know, I’ve been leading a Renstrom sponsored Spear Study Club for the last year.  Each year in early September, study club leaders gather at the Spear Center in Scottsdale for seminars on how to implement multidisciplinary care in dental practices.  I was very excited about the speaker line-up for this year’s symposium and I was not disappointed.  In addition to the always excellent Spear staff (Frank Spear DDS, Greg Kinzer DDS, Vince Kokich, Jr. DMD, Jim Janakievski DDS, and Imtiaz Manji) there were great presentations by Gerry Chiche DDS (Comprehensive Esthetic Rehabilitations), Ed Swift, Jr. (Adhesive Dentistry), and Ricardo Mitrani DDS (Ortho-Restorative Interface).  One of the highlights for me is always the “live” treatment planning sessions where the Spear staff (mentioned above) present and treatment plan cases interactively with the audience.  Comedienne Jeanne Robertson gave a meaningful, and hilarious, keynote address titled, Humor: A Strategy for Success.  The combination of up to the minute dental ideas, great food, entertainment and Scottsdale ambience make Spear Education the best value in C.E. today.  Spear also has a phenomenal online learning library.  You can check out all the options that Spear has to offer at http://speareducation.com
