About the Show

The Digital Classroom is a show about what's new and what's next
when it comes to Dental Continuing Education. How CE is taken and consumed is changing fast, so knowing what's out there and where to find it is super important.
I will be interviewing people throughout the industry who are not only providing great CE Courses, but just great educational content in general. Getting CE should be more than just checking the box and getting your "hours", it should be about professional development. My guest are sharing their perspective on how they educating the industry.
They are also sharing, "who" they are "why" they do what they do and "how" they are different
when it comes to their approach and their mission.
