Nearly 300 attendees and 30 manufacturers participated March 7 in the 14th annual Open House at the Regional Learning Alliance in Cranberry Township, Pa. – another successful event hosted by Benco Dental’s Allegheny Region. This years’ keynote speaker was John C. Kois, DMD, MSD, of the Kois Center. Dr. Kois gave an outstanding lecture on Functional Occlusion.
One of the many highlights of the day came when Chuck Cohen, Benco Dental Managing Director, made a special appearance and assisted in giving four $1,500 Kois Scholarships to doctors in attendance, provided by Benco. Scholarships were awarded to: Dr. Erin Catherman; Dr. Kathryn Duncan-Friedman; Dr. Jeremy Catherman and Dr. William Logan.
Dentsply Professional and Benco Dental jointly sponsored a second seminar geared towards hygienists. Shirley Branam, RDH, MBA, presented two topics: “Win the Battle against Biofilm” and “Managing Dentin Hypersensitivity.” Branam’s course was highly anticipated by hygienist’s in the area and received excellent reviews by those in attendance.
Some of the best and newest products were showcased, including the 3M TruDef Scanner and Glidewell TS-150 In-Office Milling machine.
“Allegheny is excited to have had another successful Open House and looking forward to the rest of 2014. Go Benco,” said Eric Cooney, Benco Dental Regional Manager, Allegheny.
