CEDAR FALLS, IA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- As a Cedar Falls dentist with more than 30 years of experience, Dr. Thomas J. Strub recognizes the significance of staying abreast of the latest advances in dental treatment techniques. Upholding the importance of education and networking, Dr. Strub says one of the ways he discovers new and more creative solutions to patient care is through dental study clubs. Currently, Dr. Strub is a member of the Minnesota Academy of Comprehensive Dentistry, a large-scale, invitation-only academy, and a smaller, intimate eight-member group called Really Profound Opportunities (RPO).
For a dentist who offers a range of treatment options, from dental implants to teeth whitening to routine dental cleanings, Dr. Strub says the advantages of membership in both clubs is invaluable. "There are several benefits. Number one, it keeps you on the cutting edge of the techniques, instruments, equipment, and materials out there. Probably the biggest benefit is you get to connect with some of the top one to two percent of the dentists in the United States. Especially with our eight-man study club, if I've got a question about different techniques or a different case, or some questions about how to do [something], they can give one of those people a call around the U.S. and see what they're using and doing; how, or if they've handled a case like this; and get some input and ideas on how to proceed."
The mission at Minnesota Academy of Comprehensive Dentistry is to provide dentists with a unique forum to present, study, and discuss topics in all fields of dentistry so they can enhance their clinical skills, expertise, and standard of care. "Just the connecting with some absolutely phenomenal dentists is really important," says Dr. Strub. "It gives you a number of different ideas, and keeps you in touch with the leaders in dentistry."
In a recent blog post, "What is a Dental Study Club? Find out How Dr. Thomas Strub Stays Up-to-Date on the Latest in Advanced Dentistry" Dr. Strub explains that RPO is distinctive because of the quality of its members. Two of the members are on the faculty at The Pankey Institute, which is known as a state-of-the art, leading dental education center in the U.S. Additionally, one of the aspects Dr. Strub finds most beneficial of RPO is its emphasis on practice management. Once a year, a practice management consultant is brought in so members can discover different ways to improve the relationships in the practice among the patients and staff, which is something that Dr. Strub finds to be extremely helpful.
Because Dr. Strub's philosophy is to provide an exceptional quality patient experience in combination with advanced dental care, he says that his membership in dental study clubs helps him fulfill both aspects of his practice's mission. In-between meetings, the dentists also maintain an open dialogue, sharing expertise and experience via phone or email to ensure they stay up-to-date on the latest techniques and materials. By emphasizing best practice management skills, examining patient cases, and discussing a variety of topics in restorative, cosmetic, and family dentistry, Dr. Strub says the dental study clubs help him provide patients with cutting edge dental care and an exceptional treatment experience.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
