SCDS Update – Virtual Courses Fall 2020

ATTN: Sioux City dental professionals and supporting staff,

We are writing to update everyone for our first two meetings this Fall for the dental society. The Sioux City Dental Society is committed to providing the highest quality continuing education possible. We have been continually monitoring the Covid-19 situation locally and nationally, and have weighed many factors and options for this Fall. We have all had to make changes in our practices and daily lives to face this challenge. Due to the current situation, speaker travel, and other factors, it has been determined that the first two scheduled meetings (October and November) will be held completely virtually. They will be performed on the same dates and times as planned. We have confirmed our formats are in accordance with the surrounding states and AGD for CE qualification.

We appreciate your flexibility and patience during this time as we implement a new virtual platform. We are attempting to duplicate as in-person experience by working closely with a specialized media firm.

We are designing a webpage that will be utilized for our first virtual dental meeting on the originally scheduled date of October 9th, starting at 8 AM. Each attendee will need to register for this meeting individually. One email address may be used per staff member. CE cards will be distributed electronically through email based off of these pre-registrations at the conclusion of the meeting. The meeting itself will follow the scheduled times with one change: Dr. Sarat Thikurissy will speak from 12-4. This will ensure that everyone will be able to attend all virtual sessions. Q&A will be available during these sessions with a brief questionnaire following the speaker.

Please continue to monitor our website and social media for meeting updates. A link to the October meeting registration should be available soon. Questions or comments can be directed to officers of the Sioux City Dental Society.

Thank you for being flexible and understanding at this time. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

2020/2021 Schedule and Registration Form Here

The Sioux City Dental Society is actively monitoring the situation with COVID-19 as well as state and national guidelines. As of now, we are scheduling speakers to come to Siouxland this Fall and Winter. With increasing uncertainty of how this pandemic will affect person gatherings, we are also prepared to provide the CE virtually if we are not all able to safely meet in person. This would likely take place through Zoom or a similar platform, and specific details will be released when the time comes. We are in the process of confirming that these CE hours will still be accepted by all surrounding states. The cost of the 2020-2021 meetings will be decreased due to the cancellation of the March 2020 meeting.

We appreciate everyone’s flexibility and patience during this time. Please feel free to contact us with questions or comments regarding this year’s program. We feel privileged to be in such a great group of dental professionals. Thank you and have a great day!
