Communication workshop offered by Dental School (9-29-99)

Dentists and their office teams are invited to the James P. Hollers Memorial Lectureship sponsored by the Dental School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. This year's course, "Great Communication Equals Great Production," will be offered Friday, Oct. 29, at the Omni San Antonio Hotel, 9821 Colonnade Blvd.

Reservation cutoff date for the block of rooms at the Omni is Thursday, Oct. 14. For more information or to register, call the Dental School's Office of Continuing Dental Education (CDE) at (210) 567-3177.

Course participants will hone a number of communication and management skills, including establishing trusting relationships with patients, determining patients' wants and needs, and setting achievable objectives. Presenter Cathy Jameson is founder and president of Jameson Management Inc., a dental practice management company, and serves as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Oklahoma School of Dentistry.

Representatives from national dental supply companies and equipment manufacturers will exhibit their products as part of the Hollers Lectureship. "The Dental School appreciates the participation of these commercial exhibitors in meeting the educational and product needs of the professional dental community as well as their educational grant in support of this continuing dental education program," said William Butler, director of CDE in the Dental School. "The generosity of these companies also helps support the dental scholarship funds awarded annually by the Dental Alumni Association."

Sponsors funding the grant include Beutlich, LP; Brasseler, USA; Colin Medical Instruments; Dentsply-Caulk; Designs for Vision; HPSC Inc.; Lightspeed Technology; Med-National; Oral Designs; Patterson Dental Supply; Procter & Gamble; Vivadent; and Warner Lambert.

The Hollers Memorial Lectureship pays tribute to the leadership and achievements of James P. Hollers, D.D.S. (1899-1976). He was one of San Antonio's leading citizens, played an active role in the development of the Dental School, and served as president of the American Dental Association and other organizations.
