Target Audience

Program Purpose / Objectives
The members of 21st Century Practice Solutions invite you to the definitive seminar on how to transition to technology in your practice while staying in your comfort zone!

Dental technology is breathtaking and it can make a difference clinically and financially, but only if you know the what, when, and where of procurement. Join five recognized experts for an exciting 7 day Mexican Riviera cruise that will enable you to create, implement, and realize the dream of the 21st Century dental practice.

* Rationale for Technology investment-think like big business!
* What do patients really want?
* Where to start by assessing what you have and where you need to go
* It’s a plan and implementation that counts-do it within your budget
* Efficiency is the promise of technology-assess and implement correctly
* Cost improvement or Revenue enhancement-the “Bottom Line”
* Risk assessment-where are you?
* The latest and best in Technology
* Patient communication-how and what to say to get a “yes” (with course handouts)
* Digital dental workflow-get the most out of your investment
* Breaking through the insurance “wall”
* Got CEREC? Maximize efficiency and breakthrough!
* Door prizes and takeaways and more!
This exciting course is ideal for any doctor and team member considering technology investment and especially those who are only partially there. A special section will be included for those doctors who utilize CEREC but would like to propel their practice forward to the abilities of the technique. We will cover it all from CAD/CAM to lasers to digital everything! We know technology and want every practice to realize “Smarter not Harder” without breaking the bank. This is a limited attendance event and early cabin procurement is a must!
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Ports of Call
Cabo San Lucas - Championship golf courses, world-class deep sea fishing and incredible diving opportunities have transformed Cabo San Lucas, a once sleepy fishing town located on the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, into one of the most popular resort destinations in Mexico. Rolling sand dunes and hidden coves dot a countryside ringed by some of the most famous and often-photographed rock formations in the world.
Mazatlan, Mexico - If you're ready to experience some of the finest sailing and sport fishing available, then you're ready for Mazatlan. This is an exquisite seaside resort by anyone's standards. Of course, you don't have to partake in world-class water sports to enjoy Mazatlan. You can relax on one of its soft-sand beaches caressed by trade winds that are even softer. Or shop for silver jewelry and Mexican crafts in the shops of "The Golden Zone", where you can also celebrate your purchases at one of the area's lively cantinas.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Puerto Vallarta has all the amenities of a classic beach resort ‐ surf, sand and sun‐ but it also offers so much more. Perfect for honeymooners, families and seniors alike, Puerto Vallarta offers sport fishing, golfing, horseback riding, hiking and whale watching. Boasting mountains, jungles, beaches, rivers, and waterfalls, this port is completely different from any other destination in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta is a modern destination that remains loyal to its traditional Mexican roots. And that's just scratching the surface.
San Diego, California - Sunshine and fun are business as usual in San Diego. Walk on Coronado Island's sandy beach, take in the elegant streetscapes of the historic district, have a wild time at the famous San Diego Zoo or a whale of a good time at Sea World.

Our staff can assist you with all your travel arrangements.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
