I. The Intracostal Dental Study Club goals are to promote and advance:
A. Interdisciplinary treatment planning as the foundation of ideal, comprehensive care for patients in the Broward county and vicinities.
B. Peer-based, ongoing learning in the context of the Seattle Study Club model as the most efficient and effective way for dentists in the field to enhance their understanding of basic and advanced techniques and technologies, and to improve their ability to treatment plan and treat complex cases in the interdisciplinary setting.
C. Commitment on the part of dentists to achieving their full professional potential in becoming “complete clinicians” — those who are able to marry the science and the art of dentistry to deliver the highest and most beneficial level of care to their patients.
D. Enthusiasm and passion in dentists for the profession of dentistry, and a true understanding of the immense benefits dentistry can provide to patients seeking improvements in their health and beauty.
E. Professional camaraderie and the sharing of knowledge between and among dentists, and the development of a professional and personal support network within the context of the study club.
F. A “university without walls” inside the Seattle Study Club, such that clinicians have ready access to leading dental authorities in a variety of fields, through their presentations at Seattle Study Club meetings, their articles and cases published in the Seattle Study Club Journal, their participation in Seattle Study Club web sessions and their lectures and workshops at the yearly Seattle Study Club National Symposium.
