March 22, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

REGISTRATION-FORM-Mar 2019 Baliwas DR. BRIAN BALIWAS Dr. Baliwas is a general and cosmetic dentist located in San Francisco, California. Dr. Brian Baliwas’ strong focus on dental education allows he and his patients to formulate treatment strategies together, providing the opportunity for them to be active participants in their dental care. His practice philosophy is centered on conservative, highly esthetic, comprehensive dentistry that utilizes modern technology and techniques. Dr. Baliwas received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from UC Davis. He completed post-baccalaureate studies in Human Anatomy and Physiology at the University of Oregon and went on to obtain his D.D.S. degree from the University of the Pacific (UOP) School of Dentistry in San Francisco, where he graduated with high honors and was elected to join both Omicron Kappa Upsilon and Tau Kappa Omega dental honor societies. He also received several awards for his outstanding clinical work in the areas of esthetic dentistry, oral implantology, restorative dentistry, and endodontics. As an active member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Academy of General Dentistry, and several study clubs throughout the Bay Area, Dr. Baliwas continually surrounds himself with some of the best practitioners in his field. He aspires to continually learn and improve, traveling down the path of excellence in search for perfection in his craft. In addition, Dr. Baliwas also teaches part-time at the University of the Pacific dental school in the Department of Integrated Reconstructive Dental Sciences, where he inspires his students to maintain a high level of commitment, passion, and pride in their dental work. Through the organic development of a powerful social media and app-based presence, Dr. Brian Baliwas has grown a 1000+ patient base in under three years of practice. His strong online following has helped him become one of the top social media influences in the dental field. SOCIAL MEDIA and APP-BASED STRATEGIES In a majority of dental practices, social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) are commonly misused, underutilized, or worse, not adopted at all. This course will outline how to properly use social media and commonly used Smartphone applications in order to educate your patients and shape your office’s social media persona. Your days of paying large social media marketing companies hundreds of dollars per month for generic, unengaging content are over. LEARNING OBJECTIVES: • Learn how to utilize social media in order to network with dental colleagues, educate existing patients, increase treatment plan acceptance, and bring new patients to your practice • Learn how to properly engage on different social media platforms • Learn what type of content you should be posting, and how to post it properly, maximizing user interaction and minimizing risk • Learn how to use common smartphone applications (i.e. LYFT/Uber, Spotify, etc.) to increase potential patient exposure
