PITTSON, Pa., USA: Through a new partnership, Benco Dental is presenting continuing education opportunities with Dental Nachos, a network of coaching, education and connections that includes a 21,000-member national and global Facebook group established by Paul Goodman, DMD.

Using his 360-degree view on the life of dentists inside and outside of their practice, Goodman created Dental Nachos in 2017, based on the philosophy: “Nachos are made to be shared, and so are good ideas.” This roadmap for improving patient health and satisfaction, practice profits and personal joy is now available through one of the nation’s largest independent dental distributors, which describes itself as being committed to driving dentistry forward.

"Unlike ordinary continuing education, the Dental Nachos approach is wide-ranging and community-based, with a remarkable level of peer support," said Julie Radzyminski, director of professional relations at Benco Dental. "Dr. Goodman and the Dental Nachos team leverage technology to make accessing an incredible array of C.E. resources easier than ever, and the experience doesn't end like it does with a traditional course because the connections between Dr. Goodman and learners continue and deepen online and through social media."

A leader in innovation and customer service (the company measures customer satisfaction with the Net Promoter Score, NPS), Benco Dental is widely known for the array of resources it provides to dental practitioners. Based in Philadelphia, Pa., the Dental Nachos platform offers continuing education on chairside techniques and behind-the-scenes strategies through  on-demand and self-study courses.

Practicing dentists, dental students and dentist office team members — and now Benco customers — can benefit from the “dentists helping dentists” perspective that Goodman’s organization offers members. The C.E. catalog includes:

  • Dental Nachos Encyclo-CEpedia, 65-plus hours of CE and six-plus hours of bonus content in talking textbooks that can be viewed or listened to from any location, and
  • Dental Nachos Supreme, a program new for 2020 featuring live-streamed C.E., including clinical topics, available at different levels of investment.

"I am continually impressed by Benco's ability to share innovative products and services with their customers. Having a resource dedicated to support in the world of dentistry is key to surviving and thriving," Goodman said.
