Fling Seminars was developed to meet a specific need in contemporary dental education. Having been involved as a laboratory technician and as an educator since graduation from dental school in 1984, Dr. Michael Fling has a desire to help other dentists understand and implement the same techniques and protocols that he found to be so effective. He provides these courses to study clubs, dental meetings, and in Oklahoma City, OK. He educates in a practical and stimulating manner so you will be motivated and effective in applying information in your everyday practice.
Dr. Fling Featured on the DMG America Dental Podcast Series
Listen to Dr. Fling's episode "Composite Shell Overlay Technique for Provisionalization" on the DMG America Dental Podcast Series.
First, having a background as a dental technician, Dr. Fling is keenly aware of the need for the highest level of communication between the dentist and technician. With today’s patient demanding aesthetic and predictable restorative care, it is the purposed interaction and dependency among the laboratory assistant, the technician, and the clinician, that will allow success. The responsibility of each of these team players is enormous, yet necessary if we choose excellence. Education that nurtures this relationship, concepts that improve communication, and management and technical expertise among these partners are paramount.
A Practical Approach
Secondly, educational material that is presented in an informative, stimulating, yet practical approach is critical. “Practical” is emphasized, as it is a goal to provide educational material that can be implemented routinely in day-to-day practice. It should be noted that while education is a large component of Dr. Fling’s life, much like you, he practices dentistry every Monday through Thursday. By applying the fundamental concepts presented in these seminars… aesthetics outcomes, restorative predictability, practice profitability, staff responsibilities, and patient satisfaction can all be improved in your everyday practice.
Dr. Fling has incorporated some of the “masters” in their field to help in this educational process. A master technician, Jeff Singler CDT, will assist in developing the dentist/technician relationship. Genevieve Poppe will contribute her insight into personal growth along with her expertise in practice management issues. Dr. Michael Rodgers contributes his expertise in restorative concepts while Dr. Jim Kessler has the same contribution along with his expertise in materials and laboratory components of practice.
It is Dr. Fling's conviction to give back to our profession through stimulating education, emphasizing the need to develop meaningful relationships and providing practical, clinically relevant information that can be implemented daily. Thank you for expressing an interest in the offered seminars.
“Our team brings experience from all aspects of dentistry to provide comprehensive, practical, and useful educational materials that you can implement into your practice on a daily basis. It is our mission to give back to our profession in an effective and diligent way.” Dr. Michael Fling
