LONE STAR DENTAL SEMINARS

COMPREHENSIVE, CONTINUAL AND

COLLABORATIVE LEARNING

Robert J. Naples, DDS has been the director of Lone Star Dental Seminars (LSDS), an Seattle Study Club chapter since 2004. He pursues excellence and collaboration in every aspect of his practice and the Study Club is no different.

Dr. Naples strives to educate and support his Study Club members by providing cutting edge programming to benefit their clinical, practice and personal life. In addition to the phenomenal, nationally recognized speakers who have shared their knowledge with LSDS, Dr. Naples promotes excellence in care of local patients by collaborating with other Study Club members during monthly treatment planning sessions, designed to promote the best solutions for patients.

The Lone Star Dental Seminars Study Club, in conjunction with Naples Oral + Facial Surgery, holds Treatment Planning Sessions Year-Round on Tuesday Evenings to give practitioners a highly collaborative approach to case management. Each participant is encouraged to contribute clinical solutions and cases for our discussion as a doctors’ group.

Any doctor who chooses to be part of the Lone Star Dental Seminars is a conscientious devotee to the field of dentistry and should be commended for their continued commitment to their professional development and education and quality care of their patients. LSDS is a comprehensive, continual and collaborative learning program for this community.

Approved PACE Program Provider FAGD/MAGD credit. Approval does not imply acceptance by a state or provincial board of dentistry or AGD endorsement. 8/9/2013 to 8/8/2017. Provider ID # 300913

The Academy of General Dentistry’s (AGD) Program Approval for Continuing Education (PACE) was established to promote ongoing, quality dental continuing education (CE) for all dental professionals.  The AGD PACE Program is based on 13 rigorous standards that follow accepted principles of good practice used to identify high-quality educational organizations throughout the world.

PACE providers use these standards to plan, conduct, evaluate, and continuously improve their CE courses.  The AGD reviews and approves eligible CE organizations as AGD PACE Providers and then monitors adherence to the standards through recurring reviews.

Today, nearly three decades later, licensing boards and other organizations throughout North America still turn to AGD PACE to identify quality CE organizations.

SEATTLE STUDY CLUB

SO MUCH MORE THAN CONTINUING EDUCATION
FOR DENTISTS

The Seattle Study Club is a network of dental study clubs started by Dr. Michael Cohen in the early 1990s. Currently, there are over 250 Affiliate Clubs worldwide, all dedicated to bringing the finest in continuing dental education to clinicians in their local communities. While each club is run by its own Director(s), they all follow the Seattle Study Club model, and adhere to the underlying goals and tenets of the organization.

Once a year, the members and Directors of these Affiliate Clubs are invited to the Seattle Study Club National Symposium. This multi-day educational extravaganza features presentations by top clinicians from around the world, as well as treatment planning workshops and seminars designed to enhance personal and practice growth. The Texas SSC Meeting is a wonderful annual event as well, bringing Study Club members from across the state together for some meaningful presentations and networking opportunities.

The Seattle Study Club network, which Lone Start Dental Seminars is an affiliate of, is a true university without walls, providing so much more than continuing education for dentists—we cultivate knowledge, understanding, collaboration and camaraderie and, together, we continue to impact the way dentistry is practiced.
