Golf Outing

Cost: $49/person
Bill Coore and legendary golfer Ben Crenshaw created the magic of Talking Stick Golf Club.  Two uniquely divergent golf courses assure a host of memorable golf experiences.  This perfect golf destination, located on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, offers uninterrupted desert panorama with spectacular visits of the distant mountains, reflecting cherished rural seclusions minutes from the heart of Scottsdale.

The AADC Golf Tournament will be held on the Piipaash Course (formerly South Course) with its tree lined fairways and raised greens defended at the sides and offers a more straightforward style of play.  It presents its challenge and strategy in an open and clear-cut fashion.

Be sure to sign up for the golf outing when you register! Golf clubs are available to rent at $50 plus tax.



Request for Claims Review Cases

The claims review sessions have been a highlight of previous Workshops. In order to be successful, educational, and informative, your enthusiastic participation is necessary. Please take the time to submit an interesting and/or questionable case to share with your colleagues. We continue to learn from each other through the Spring Workshop, therefore, your contribution is vital.

Please submit your claim for review with as much documentation (x-rays, charting, etc.,) as you have available for review. Send all your information to Ellen at the AADC office, ellen@aadc.org. If you have any further questions or comments, email Dr. Rosenthal at robertrosenthaldds@gmail.com.

CE attendance forms will be in each individual registrant’s packet on-site. The 2018 Workshop offers 16.75 Continuing Education Units. Seminar registrants receive one CE credit for each clock hour attended. It is the responsibility of the attendee to submit continuing education documentation to their respective state for verification. The American Association of Dental Consultants is an American Dental Association (ADA) CERP recognized Provider.
