April 26, 2010

Dr. Joe Blaes: I'm speaking with Dr. Gary Severance, vice president of marketing and clinical affairs for D4D Technologies, maker of the E4D line of chairside and laboratory digital systems. Gary, you're known for bringing passion, excitement, and a unique flair to dentistry and the products and events you're in charge of. What's new with you?

Gary Severance: Thanks Joe. Well, right now I'm preparing to host The Biggest Show in Dentistry — CADapalooza '10. We've rented all of Cowboys Stadium, the world's largest domed structure, and will be showing dentistry on the largest HD screen in the world! All of this is happening June 17 through 19 in Dallas, which is easily accessible to anyone anywhere in North America.

For a registration fee of just $295 ($395 after June 1), participants will:
• Earn up to nine hours of CE (seven in lecture, two hands-on)
• Attend a build-a-crown workshop where they can make their own restoration ($200 value), or attend an advanced design course (for current CAD/CAM owners)
• Hear leaders and visionaries in dentistry including: Dr. Paul Child of the CR Foundation; Dr. Santine Anderson, editor of The Dental Advisor; Dr. Curtis Jansen, Restorative and Implant Control; Dr. Don Deems, "The Dentist's Coach"; Dr. David Reznick, "The Business Dentist"; Rick Willeford, CPA from the Academy of Dental CPAs; Dr. George Tysowsky, VP of Technology, Ivoclar Vivadent; and Basil Haymann, founder of D4D Technologies
• Become CAD/CAMbassadors, independent clinicians, assistants, and technicians

We'll also update everyone on the newest technologies in CAD/CAM dentistry, including optical coherence tomography, which is the ability to see through hard and soft tissues, as well as introduce the Sky Network, which will link all dental professionals in the future. With cosponsors Henry Schein, Ivoclar Vivadent, 3M ESPE, Imaging Sciences, and Premier Dental, you can be assured you'll save even more with special promotions available only at the show.

As we like to say, if you want to reminisce about the last 25 years, go somewhere else. If you want to celebrate the next 25 years, come to CADapalooza! You can register and get more information at cadapalooza.com

See you there, Joe!
