ASM2018: A Privacy Law Primer for Dentists
As the Ontario Dental Association‘s Annual Spring Meeting approaches, we at CDA Oasis are pleased to bring you highlights of some of the speakers and the sessions that will be offered this year. It is my hope that you learn from the various conversations; and if you happen to be in Toronto, you find it interesting enough to attend the event.
I had the pleasure to host Lonny Rosen, certified specialist in health law and founder of the law firm Rosen Sunshine LLP. Mr. Rosen advises dentists and other health-care professionals as well as regulators and health-care organizations.
Mr. Rosen will lead two sessions at ASM2018; the one you are about to watch and another one titled: Dealing with the College in an Era of Transparency and Accountability; and which will be featured shortly on Oasis Discussions.
ASM2018 is the single largest venue where the dental team members can earn continuing education credits all under one roof. The meeting offers a broad and diverse range of renowned speakers and topics for dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and office staff. There will be lectures, workshops and various exhibitors, showcasing the latest products and services from more than 300 companies.
I hope you benefit from the information presented in this conversation. Be sure to share your thoughts, suggestions, and questions with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Until next Time!
