Note to meeting planners:
This program has been presented at the Yankee Dental Congress for the past 5 years. It has sold out every year.
Computers: This full-day course
(2 ½ hours am and 2 ½ hours pm) requires that the sponsoring organization
either provide computers for each participant, or require that
each participant bring a notebook computer to the course. Several
courses have been taught using notebooks provided by the dentists
participating in the course.
Software: Each participant must
either buy the latest version of Quicken® or the sponsoring organization
can provide a copy as part of the course fee. Quicken usually sells
for $35.00-$70.00, depending
Workbook: Dr. Sherman uses a workbook,
Get Smart with Quicken, and a copy must be provided by the sponsoring
organization to each
student as part of the course fee. The workbook includes a CD with
the lesson data, but not the Quicken® program. Dr. Sherman can
order the necessary number of copies 30 days before the course
date, for delivery to you for later distribution in the classroom.
The workbook cost is about $30.00 from www.tlr-inc.com.
Helpers: The maximum number of
participants is 30. However, the sponsoring organization must provide
1-3 classroom helpers, depending
on the number of participants. The helpers do not necessarily need
to know Quicken (but it helps), however, they must be knowledgeable
on how to operate in the Windows environment.
Please contact Dr.
Sherman for information on the cost of Quicken® and the workbook.
