Local dentists know that their membership in the Chicago Dental Society has its benefits.
They aim to educate more of their non-member colleagues at a Midwinter Meeting symposium Friday, Feb. 21, Are you getting the most out of your membership?
The program begins at 11 a.m. in Room W474A. It will last one hour and is open to all dentists and dental students who are attending the Midwinter Meeting. Attendees will not receive CE credit for their participation.
“We talk a lot about the power of three and the alignment of the tripartite,” longtime CDS member Michael Durbin said, speaking of the relationship among the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society and Chicago Dental Society. “This program is designed to overview what’s out there and present an argument for membership in organized dentistry. We want people to see the opportunities there are to save money, improve their practices and improve themselves through the features we offer.”
The symposium will feature a panel of CDS members sharing how they have used their member benefits at all stages of their careers.
“The best way to see the value of a CDS membership is to hear other members share their stories. They practice the same as you, work the same as you, and they have used organized dentistry to their advantage to improve their lives every day,” Dr. Durbin said.
He encourages members of organized dentistry to invite their non-member friends – and for both to stay and learn more about the benefits of membership.
He explained, “I want people to leave with an answer to the question, ‘how could I not be a member when I see everything that comes with it?’”
