Yes, but more than a study club, GDE is a continuum of learning and will be presented in sequential learning modules. Additional learning modules will be added based on the desires of the members.
How often will we meet?
At a minimum we will meet 3 Wednesday's per month. A schedule will be posted. Remember, all lectures will be recorded for your review if you are unable to attend.
How will I attend the Wednesday meetings?
You will be sent a link for a Zoom meeting.
Will I receive continuing education credit?
Yes, we are a PACE certified provider. When you attend the live lecture, you will be given a start and finish code, which you will submit for course credit. If you don’t attend the live lecture, but watch it at a later date, you will be required to take a short quiz at the end of the video to receive credit.
Is there a long-term membership commitment?
No, we hope that the continuum will meet each of your individual needs. However, if it doesn’t, you may cancel your membership at any time.
Can a dentist join GDE after the program begins?
Yes, we will continue to take new members. Once they become a member, they will have access to the previous lectures in the video library. If you see the value in your GDE membership, we would encourage you to invite your colleagues and the specialists with whom you work.
Will the membership fee increase in the next 12 months?
No, the membership fee you joined with is set for the first year. We will re-evaluate the membership fee in June, 2021.
Will I have access to Drs. Robbins and Otten to answer my questions?
Yes, this will occur in 2 different ways. First, there will be a Q&A session at the end of each lecture and some of the questions posted in the chat will be answered. Second, we will have an interactive blog on our platform that will be monitored by the faculty.
Is this study club/continuum appropriate only for dentists who have attended other institutes, continuums and have experience in treating the complex dental patient?
No, GDE is a continuum based on the Global Diagnosis system. There will be members in the continuum who are self proclaimed beginners, some who are specialists, and some more experienced restorative dentists. Our goal is to start with the Global Diagnosis foundational information and to grow together as a community. Drs. Robbins and Otten will not always have the answers and often, members will provide their own unique insights. We intend to all grow together.
Will I be required to purchase anything as a requirement of membership?
No. However, if you want to implement the information you will be learning, you will need a camera, a facebow or dentofacial analyzer, a semi-adjustable articulator, a Doppler auscultation unit and a few smaller items. If you do not currently own these items, do not purchase them yet because we will be making recommendations.
What is the difference between Global Diagnosis Education (GDE) and ACT Dental University (ADU)?
These are 2 independent continuing dental education platforms. GDE is a study club/continuum which will be primarily taught by Drs. Robbins and Otten. It will be taught in modules to a community of committed members.
When will the GDE meetings be live?
GDE will meet on Wednesday's from 8-9:30 am (Eastern).
What’s the difference between this program and other online dental CE?
The Global Diagnosis Education continuum is unique in three ways. First, it is a cohesive and sequential learning platform that aims to simplify the complex. Second, it is interactive with assignments meant to help you solidify your learning. Third, it provides ongoing support and mentorship so, if you do the work, you can implement it in your practice
