March 6, 2013 - Dolphin celebrates its 25th Anniversary at the 2013 Dolphin Meeting, Phoenix
Chatsworth, CA, March 2013 â€” More than 700 Dolphin customers, staff and consultants congregated in Phoenix last week for the 2013 Dolphin Meeting, making one of the most successful events to date while also officially kicking-off the 25th Anniversary of Dolphin. Beautiful weather, luxurious venue, expert presenters and the best attendees anyone can ask for all came together to create a memorable event.
Dolphin director Chester Wang opened the event with a timeline video of Dolphinâ€™s 25-years in the dental specialty industry. The short,Â 6Â˝-minute videoÂ displays Dolphinâ€™s technology milestones in tandem with those of mainstream culture. Chester was followed by Ken Gladstone, manager of Dolphin Imaging development, and Todd Blankenbecler, manager of Dolphin Management development, who each gave a brief overview of the cool new stuff that would be demonstrated to attendees over the next few days.Â
The main educational program includedÂ 13 Guest presentersÂ and a full roster of Dolphin trainers and techs conducting classes on all Dolphin software.Â
Dr. Duane Grummons, orthodontist and longtime Dolphin customer from Spokane, WA, delivered the keynote presentation to a packed ballroom. He inspired the crowd with a chronicle of his life and career, emphasizing and demonstrating the gratification that can be achieved from life as a dental specialty professional.Â
Clinical and research presentations were also on the program, conducted by Drs. Dan German, Budi Kusnoto and Aaron Molen. Each showed how they use Dolphin to achieve optimum results in their specialties of interest. Mr. Paul Zuelke presented a â€śdoctors-onlyâ€ť class on â€śPractice Security,â€ť in which he gave solid advice of how to protect your practice from embezzlement. Ms. Katie Weimer from Medical Modeling demonstrated how her companyâ€”Dolphinâ€™s exclusive partner within the U.S. and Canadaâ€”uses the Dolphin 3D Surgery module to create virtual surgical planning tools for customers.Â
Brenda Ashwell, Karen Moawad, Vickie B. Rudd and Charlene White each rocked the house with their respective presentations: â€śConnect, Engage, Wow and Win Patients!â€ť â€śThink Different,â€ť â€śHow to Increase Case Acceptance in a Tough Economyâ€ť and â€śCommunicate, Educate and Collaborate with Dolphin.â€ť See Charleneâ€™sÂ video reviewÂ of the meetingÂ here.Â
Everyone had a blast at the Friday Night Party, where they dined, drank and danced the night away. We canâ€™t wait to see everyone next March 6-8 at the 2014 Dolphin Meeting, Chicago!Â
