All about Clinical Education at Mortenson Dental Partners

April 25, 2022

At Mortenson Dental Partners (MDP), we want our clinicians to have every resource available to provide exceptional patient care and positive leadership. That’s why we make clinical education and development a key priority. All MDP doctors receive funds annually that they can put toward external clinical education opportunities. MDP also has many resources available internally that doctors can take advantage of. From clinical courses to live learning sessions, we make it easy to learn at MDP. 

Top Docs

Top Docs is a live learning experience that provides seventy-two CE hours over six engaging sessions. These sessions take place bi-monthly over two days, each in a variety of U.S. cities. Key opinion leaders bring value and add content on clinical and leadership topics to give doctors a five-year headstart on their career, within their first year. 

Clinical Courses

MDP has many hands-on clinical courses on key topics such as aligner therapy, implants, bread-and-butter dentistry, and lasers. These courses are provided in states that utilize EDDAs and EFDAs. Practices come together regionally to experience a Day of Learning, focusing on clinical experience, patient experience, and leadership best practices. 

National Continuing Education Provider 

MDP is a National Continuing Education Provider through the Academy of General Dentistry. All courses that are provided meet state requirements for relicensure as well as all the 13 Academy of General Dentistry standards, ensuring high-quality learning experiences for participants.

Emergency Training 

CPR and Medical Emergencies Training is provided to clinicians to meet state requirements. Coursework is also offered to meet the controlled substance prescription monitoring systems in every state.

Leadership Training 

MDP offers leadership training for our doctors through a program called INSPIRE which aims to equip new doctors to be effective leaders in their practice. As part of the Top Docs program, this two-day interactive, in-person program focuses on communication and listening, strategies for navigating and leading change, techniques for building trust with patients, and methods to develop and retain their team.  

With all of MDP’s learning and development opportunities, our clinicians can continue to further their education and become the best clinicians they can be. Learn more and apply here
