Posted on Tuesday, April 16, 2024

CDOCS, the world’s largest community of digital dentists and the leading provider of digital dentistry education, proudly announces the appointment of Dr. Dan Butterman as its new Faculty Chair. With a distinguished career spanning three decades in the dental field, Dr. Butterman brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and vision to his new role at CDOCS, where he has already been serving as an esteemed member of the Resident Faculty since 2019. During this time, he’s taught thousands of dentists at CDOCS’s hands-on workshops [Hands-On Workshops] and traveled the world as a leading dental KOL.

His appointment marks a pivotal moment for CDOCS as it aims to expand its influence and continue its mission of transforming dental education through technology and community.

“I am incredibly honored to take on the role of Faculty Chair at CDOCS,” Dr. Butterman said. “This opportunity allows me to contribute to a community that is at the forefront of dental education. My goal is to ensure that we not only keep pace with the evolving landscape of modern dentistry but also set new benchmarks for excellence and innovation.”

Under Dr. Butterman’s leadership, CDOCS is set to embark on a well-balanced, integrated path, as his vision includes enhancing the curriculum with a focus on comprehensive education that encompasses both the technological aspects of dentistry and the critical soft skills required for practice management. Dr. Butterman emphasizes the importance of a holistic approach to dental education, one that prepares practitioners not just in the technical use of digital tools but also in navigating the challenges of running a modern dental practice.

“One of the aspects I’m most excited about is developing a curriculum that reflects the complete ecosystem of the dental practice. From mastering cutting-edge digital dentistry techniques to navigating patient relations and practice management, our aim is to offer a well-rounded educational experience that supports our members in all facets of their professional development,” Dr. Butterman elaborated.

Dr. Butterman’s approach to education is rooted in the belief that a sense of community and mutual support is fundamental to the learning process. He plans to foster an environment where CDOCS members can share experiences, learn from each other, and collectively push the boundaries of what’s possible in dental practice.

“Innovation doesn’t happen in isolation. It’s the result of passionate individuals coming together, sharing ideas, and challenging each other to think differently. That’s the culture we want to cultivate at CDOCS,” Dr. Butterman added.

To drive this innovation, he firmly believes in the importance of staying clinically active to maintain relevance in education.

“It’s critical that I continue practicing dentistry,” Dr. Butterman said. “It’s amazing to me how quickly you lose touch stepping away for a short amount of time.” This dedication ensures that CDOCS’s curriculum remains not only up to date but also grounded in practical, real-world applications.

Looking forward, Dr. Butterman is committed to expanding CDOCS’s reach and impact. His plans include the introduction of new courses and workshops designed to keep practitioners at the forefront of dental technology and patient care. In addition, he aims to strengthen the community aspect of CDOCS, building an even more vibrant and supportive network of dental professionals across the globe.
