Dentists Open Wide For Online Education
Thursday, October 12, 2000
Next time you plop yourself down in your dentist's chair, you may meet a wiser and more informed "teethman" - that is if he is taking advantage of the streaming media education classes now available online. DenTrek.com's on-demand webcasts geared specifically for the dental industry will now be available on the dentalxchange.com Web site. The two companies hope that the deal will encourage dentists to log on and participate in virtual lectures to stay abreast of the latest dental developments.
"We chose to align with DenTrek.com because they share our vision of using the Internet to make evidenced-based, clinically relevant course material available to a worldwide audience," says Richard Lee, dentalxchange.com's senior vice president and co-founder. During the streaming webcasts, viewers can interact with lecturers by asking questions and getting an immediate response, just like in a traditional classroom setting.
