SPEAKER – Dr. Cory Glenn, DDS
Dr. Glenn graduated from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Dentistry. Following graduation, he went on to complete the Lutheran Medical Center’s advanced education in general dentistry residency at the UT Memphis branch. He is a graduate of the Georgia Maxi Course in Implant Dentistry, the American Orthodontic Society’s Comprehensive Ortho Program, and is credentialed as an Associate Fellow in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. He has served as the CE director for the TN AGD and as president and CE director of the Middle TN Dental Study Club. Dr. Glenn is also one of the founders of the online learning center, Blue Sky Bio Academy. For several years, Dr. Glenn ran a private practice in Winchester, TN where he performed all disciplines of dentistry with a particular focus on utilizing technology and innovative techniques to provide treatment in an efficient and cost-effective manner while still maintaining the highest level of quality. However, in 2016, he was diagnosed with APL leukemia and spent 8 months doing chemotherapy. He is now in complete remission but due to back issues following treatment, he has since retired from clinical practice and now focuses entirely on dental technology and teaching. He is now the VP of Technology for Blue Sky Bio where he works in product and software development as well as clinical customer support. He speaks extensively on the topics of CAD/CAM, cone beam technology, and guided dental implants, dental photography, digital smile design, complete dentures, and complex full mouth rehabilitation.
Program- “Making Dentistry Better, Faster, Easier, and Higher in Quality”
Modern general dentistry is not for the faint of heart. General dentists must possess an incredible amount of knowledge of different products, materials, and clinical techniques while also having the clinical skills to utilize them effectively. Add to this a flat economy and decreasing reimbursement and today’s dentist finds themselves having to do more with less. Despite this, dentists shouldn’t feel they have to choose between being affordable or providing high quality care. This full day course is packed with real world cases demonstrating that dentists can be efficient and profitable while still maintaining the highest level of quality.

CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT – 6 hours
The Board of Dentistry and HHS no longer pre-approves CE based on the new regulations. The individual licensee is responsible for attending acceptable CE so that if they were audited, they could provide proof that they attended acceptable CE. The West District Dental Society has used its best judgment based on the criteria of acceptable continuing education listed in the regulations and have determined that this program would be eligible for 6 hours of CE. Each licensee is responsible for keeping brochures and/or CE slips of CE courses to provide proof of attendance.
