DOCS Presents Interactive (((Live))) Streaming

During this time of “social distancing,” DOCS Education is using technology to keep people together. We’ve just rolled out an Interactive (((Live))) Streaming System that’s as good as being there in person.

With Interactive (((Live))) Streaming, you can accelerate your learning in the safety and comfort of your home or office with this interactive, forward-facing program designed to meet your educational requirements. 

Interactive (((Live))) Streaming is the future of delivering advanced education and saves you time and money (no travel, hotels, or meals out). It accomplishes this by combining two-way video conferencing, innovative polling, immediate response Q&A technology, and participant-focused Office Hours with DOCS Faculty and Regulatory Counsel.

DOCS Education has distilled the best elements of advanced in-person learning, without the costs and drawbacks of travel, to help you invest in yourself NOW, even in the present crisis.

Note: All interactive live-streaming courses are broken down into the following components: 50-80% Live Streaming Lectures (to take place February 19-20, 2021), Online Video Content (to be viewed prior to Live Course start dates), and prescheduled Live Office Hours that correspond to the Online Video Modules.

Financial

We are proud to offer DOCS Members a zero-interest, 6-month payment plan to help you prepare for the surge in demand for services once the crisis has passed. There’s no better time to hone your skills, add a new treatment modality, or maintain your ability to provide sedation.  To take advantage, call us or email sales@docseducation.com.

Pre-Course

Each course has pre-course content that must be completed online before the Live Streaming event. The number of hours depends on the course selected. You will receive login instructions via email to access the pre-course in your DOCS Dashboard.

Office Hours

Part of your experience is interactive two-way video sessions. Each Office Hour corresponds to online study modules and will provide personalized support to help participants master the material. During Office Hours, faculty interacts live with small groups of participants. This allows you to not only get your questions answered but see what questions others have and engage in active conversations that are both stimulating and educational.

Tech Support

Our full-time Tech Support staff is waiting in the wings to quickly address any issues you may encounter. Just make sure you have a stable internet connection.

Regulatory Support

The DOCS Regulatory Attorney is available before and after each Interactive Live Streaming session to address concerns and questions you may have regarding permits, certificates, and the renewal process.

Interactive Technology

  • Live Streaming: Watch the course in real-time with both presenter and slides on your display.
  • Polling: Each course is designed to test your comprehension with interactive polling software that tracks your responses so instructors can modify their lectures to serve the real-time needs of participants.
  • Q&As: In a more streamlined approach than traditional live programs, additional faculty works in the background during each class to moderate and monitor questions you submit digitally. This allows your questions to be answered immediately for all to see, or held until the presenter is ready to address them personally.
  • Two-Way Video Conferencing: Office hours with faculty in small groups to answer all your questions.

Course Binder

You and any registered team members will receive all course materials necessary to complete your program by mail, including:

  • Expansive participant binders that follow the lecture page-by-page and are designed to be used as a reference manual afterward
  • Detailed information on how to join each session and any technology requirements
  • An easy-to-follow schedule and a checklist to keep you on track
  • Fun surprises you’re going to enjoy!

Home Study

If you would like a digital copy of the Course Binder, please contact our Customer Loyalty Representatives.

An important component of the Interactive Live Streaming system is the continuing education credits it entitles you to receive. 

Here’s what you need to know about the CE credits you’ll earn:

  1. Within two weeks, we will email CE certificates to those who complete all elements of their courses (online pre-course, Office Hours, and Live Streaming days). These vary from state to state in terms of what they need in writing, and we will prepare your credits to conform to your state’s requirements.
  2. If you are an Academy of General Dentistry member and would like us to submit your credits to the AGD, please provide your AGD membership number.

Note: Some states, such as California, require that the CE letter be provided directly from us to receive proper credit. If you have any questions about your state’s specific requirements, please ask J. Kathleen Marcus, J.D, our Regulatory Counsel, during scheduled regulatory Office Hour sessions.

Sedation Dentistry is a team sport, and we're making it easier than ever to train your staff. Train your team and get 50% off the regular price automatically. 

Casual attire is appropriate for the course. Pajama bottoms and slippers are welcome! 

We’ll be emailing a daily edition of the DOCS Community Digest to all attendees via our DOCS Event App, which will include up-to-date information on the day’s schedule, as well as exclusive event-only offers.
