Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 4, 2006
Sunrise, FL – May 2, 2006 – Learn.com®, the leader in creating and projecting power-on-demand e-learning, today announced that InterDent, Inc., one of the leading providers of dental practice management services in the United States, has renewed its on-demand LearnCenter contract and has added Learn.com’s Mentor EPSS and eAgent virtual avatar technology to its life-long learning arsenal.
“We are one of the fastest growing companies in our industry for many reasons but a major contributor to our success is technology,” said Lee G. Rouman, Chief Information Officer for InterDent, Inc. “Leveraging the Learn.com platform, our Gentle Dental University delivers a blended learning environment encompassing online learning, learning management, webinars, on-demand solutions and traditional instructor-led education.”
“This blended approach is extremely popular with our affiliated dentists, who appreciate that Gentle Dental University provides the best continuing education so they can concentrate on what is really important – great patient care!”, continued Rouman.
“Dentists thinking about a career with a Gentle Dental affiliated practice can learn about our commitment to continuing education at http://www.gentledentalcareers.com.”
“We have more than 1,900 employees and 750 affiliated dentists and hygienists in eight states – it is a geographically disbursed population. The most effective means of educating them is through e-learning. The advantages are that people can interact with education modules repeatedly when it is convenient for them,” said Maureen Winningham, Director of Education for InterDent, Inc.
“Instructor-led training has the shelf life of milk,” continued Winningham. “As soon as the instructor walks out the door, the training starts to expire and they forget most of what they had just learned! Automation allows us to deliver an effective, consistent and efficient learning experience. We do not see what we do as ‘training’. Our dentists are always striving to learn so they can provide excellent patient care. This learning strategy is about a life-long education. It is about performance development. It is about providing options of e-learning or instructor-led learning. The better our people, the better our end result--top notch patient care.”
Winningham added, “We have taken e-learning to another level because we know people learn in different ways. We have added Learn.com’s custom Mentor EPSS technology to our proprietary patient management software platform. This custom content will provide an automated help desk within our software to improve user efficiency and reduce the need to place a help desk call. Mentor teaches learners just in time. In addition, we have purchased a customized Learn.com eAgent avatar whom we have named “Wanda” to increase learner retention rates.”
“We are very happy with our selection of Learn.com. We could not have asked for a better solution or better service. The team has consistently delivered to the highest levels,” said Winningham.
