Faculty and students in the Fort Worth Campus Dental Assisting and Medical Billing and Coding programs attended the Southwest Dental Conference (SWDC), held in Dallas, Texas, earlier this year.

The SWDC is the premier regional dental meeting of the southwest for dental health professionals in Texas and nine surrounding states, providing an excellent arena in which students can learn from some of the top professionals in their field.

Instructors Jeremiah Speller and Rhonda Abbott encouraged their students to attend an interactive session aptly named “Teamwork: It Makes Your Dental Dream Work.” This breakout session emphasized the importance of team building in the dental office as well as characteristics to look for in employees — information that will prove valuable as these students move toward graduation.

Career Services Representative Abigail Staples agreed, stating, “It’s awesome that students had the chance to experience speaking with different professionals outside of the Remington community; I think being in that environment was definitely a great motivator for students.”

Students had an added incentive to pay close attention to the information presented at the conference, because on the following day, Dental Assisting students were given a quiz that related to their experience at the conference.

Although this was the fourth time our Dental Assisting program has attended this event, it was an exciting first for Medical Billing and Coding instructor Susan King and her students.  The SWDC introduced a new session this year entitled “Dental Billing and Coding Dynamics,” which gave students a great chance to learn about new charting and coding tools currently in use in dental offices across the U.S.

The consensus of instructors and students alike was that the SWDC provided a fun and interesting learning environment.
