The Eco-Dentistry Association will hold the industry’s first dental conference devoted exclusively to high-tech, environmentally sound dental practices. The event will take place May 3-4, 2013, at the eco-friendly Robert Redford Conference Center in Sundance, Utah, part of the Sundance Resort. Continuing Education credits will be available and attendance is limited to the first 100 registrants.

The 2013 Green Dentistry Conference™ will showcase the information and products dental professionals need to create and maintain state-of-the-art green practices. “A” List dental speakers include Gary Takacs of Takacs Learning Center, who will share the essentials of branding and marketing a green dental practice, as well as dental technology gurus Marty Jablow, DMD, Paul Feuerstein, DMD, and John Flucke, DDS who will talk about how dental technologies reduce waste and save energy, and boost the practice bottom line. With a generous sponsorship from US Bank, Bill Roth, noted sustainability author and speaker, will lead a break out group called “Green Builds Business.”

The conference will offer panel discussions on everything from building and financing a high-tech, green dental practice to creating a successful green hygiene program. Unique, small group, hands-on opportunities with dental technology such as lasers and CAD/CAM systems will also be available.

The 2013 Green Dentistry Conference™ will offer attendees something rarely found at dental conferences: promoting the overall health and wellbeing of the dental team. Optional morning yoga and meditation will be available for all attendees and there will be presentations focusing on the importance of work-life balance to support personal and professional success.

On Sunday, May 5, attendees will have the option of hiking in the 6,000 acres of pristine wilderness adjacent to the Sundance Resort, enjoying fly-fishing, golf or the spa.

Customizable sponsorship opportunities are available for companies offering green dental, green building, or wellness products and services.

Discounted early bird registration opened January 22 at www.ecodentistry.org/conference. Contact info@ecodentistry.org or call (510) 841-1229 for additional details.
