LBV Education mission and facility
LBV Education’s mission is to bring highly sought after speakers to educate the local dental community to the highest level of expertise and practice synergy. By bringing renowned speakers to the Baltimore/Annapolis/Washington DC area, LBV Education saves doctors both travel and hotel, as well as office & family downtime, while enabling doctors to pursue premier CE that will leverage their practice to the next level of excellence by continuously improving the level of dental care for their patients.
LBV Education offers premier courses and CE hours for both Dentists and also for Dentists and their staff to increase synergy in their practices and to further improve patient care. We provide an environment that brings a wide range of Dental Specialties together with General Dentists to increase knowledge through group discussion, the sharing of experience, and discussion of cases with one another and directly with the instructor.
We purposefully limit our courses to a small number of attendees and provide a state of the art lecture room to maximize the learning experience. This gives an extraordinary opportunity for our attendees to be able to interact and to learn synergistically with one another as well as also to work directly with our speakers. We have the capability for lecture courses as well as for participation in hands-on laboratory courses.
