Dental Products Report Technology Summit is Happening *Virtually* on August 25th


Once a quarter the folks at Dental Products Report bring a virtual learning event to the profession.  We feel that providing quality certified education to the profession that can be accessed anywhere you have an Internet connection is the future of continuing education.  Ever since the shutdown of Covid-19, we've made a concerted effort to bring the best educators and the most interesting topics to dentists worldwide.  

If you haven't had a chance to be a part of one of these events, you will NOT be disappointed.  The topics are "to the point" and cover things that you *need* to know.  There are even opportunities to ask questions of the experts.  Personally, I always have a lot of fun moderating plus I get to take lots of notes and learn from experts who I respect.

It's now time to let you know about the next event in our virtual cavalcade of events.

On Friday August 25th, 2023 Dental Products Report will bring to you our "Technology Summit" as our third event of the year.  This one is going to be a great one.  In addition to myself as moderator, we will also have my friend Dr. Lorne Lavine,  Jordyn Levitas, as well as Dr. Bryan Kariya.  All three are recognized experts.  

If you are looking for quality continuing eduction that you can watch from anywhere you have an Internet connection, you need be a part of this event.  This summit promises to give amazing information and you won't want to miss out.  As you know, practices are trying harder and harder to make appointments more convenient and that is one of the principles behind our efforts at DPR.  We want to bring the concept of convenience to educational events as well and what is more convenient than "wherever you choose to be?"

In addition to that amazing convenience, we are also bringing some really smart people to this party.

Here is a bit more about each of them for you to digest...

Dr. Lorne Lavine

Transparency: I've personally known Dr. Lavine for at least 20 years and count him as a personal friend.  However, from a professional point of view, Lorne is one of the most talented IT folks in the profession.

Dr Lorne Lavine, founder and president of The Digital Dentist, has over 30 years invested in the dental and dental technology fields. A graduate of USC, he earned his DMD from Boston University and completed his residency at the Eastman Dental Center in Rochester, NY. He received his specialty training at the University of Washington and went into private practice in Vermont until moving to California in 2002 to establish TDD, a company which focuses on the specialized technological and HIPAA needs of the dental community.

 Dr Lavine has vast experience with dental technology systems. He is a CompTia Certified A+ Computer Repair Technician, CompTia Network+ certified, and is a HIPAA Certified Security Professional. As a consultant and integrator, he has extensive hands-on experience with most practice management software, image management software, digital cameras, intraoral cameras, computers, networks, and digital radiography systems.

 Dr Lavine writes for many well-known industry publications and lectures across the country. He is the regular Technology columnist for Dental Products Report. His articles have appeared in Dentistry Today, Dental Economics, Dental Equipment and Materials, Dental Practice Report, New Dentist, Dental Angle Online, and DentalTown magazine, where he was a moderator of ten of their Computer and Software Forums. He has lectured to the Yankee Dental Congress, American Academy of Periodontology, American Academy of Endodontics, the DentalTown Extravaganza, and numerous State Dental Society and Study Club lectures. In addition, he is a member of the Speaking and Consulting Network. He is also the former technology consultant for the Indian Health Service.

Jordyn Levitas

Jordyn Levitas has been with Torch Dental for 5 years and has been inside thousands of dental offices. She has seen the company grow from zero practices to over 2,000. She is passionate about innovative technology in the dental space and how it can advance practices with any big or small tasks. She understands that convenience and transparency is super important while running a business. 

Jordyn started with Torch Dental in New York City helping dentists and learning the ins and outs of the dental supply world. She began as a Sales Consultant for Torch and now works on Strategic Partnerships. Jordyn is currently based in Chicago,  living with her husband and a small cavapoo, Rocky. 

Dr. Bryan Kariya

Dr Bryan Kariya attended Brigham Young University for undergraduate studies, where he was a running back on the football team from 2008-2011. Following undergrad, he attended the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry for his dental training. Upon graduation, Dr Kariya worked in private practice in Nevada, Utah, and Oklahoma, where he gained a variety of experience and found a passion for digital dentistry. 

Driven to increase his experience and knowledge of implant dentistry, Dr Kariya completed an AEGD residency in Birmingham, AL that primarily focused on implants and digitally driven prosthodontics.
