Travel and Learn 2024: Prague and Vienna. Optional Extension: Bratislava and Budapest

Join us for small-group, world-class travel and 6 hours of innovative, practical continuing dental education presentations. Lectures will be held on-site and have been thoughtfully planned to provide learners with exceptional education while still seeing the best Austria and the Czech Republic have to offer.

Located in the heart of Central Europe, Prague and Vienna sit high atop the list of many travelers' favorite cities and are waiting to be explored. From Vienna's imperial sights to Prague's medieval wonders, every day is filled with unique and interesting activities.

This trip was cancelled in 2020, to many people’s disappointment. We are excited to bring it back with a fresh itinerary and renewed demand.

Panoramic: What a Mess! 

Did you know that about 99% of panoramic radiographs have errors? About 25-33% of panoramic radiographs deserve to be in the trash can. In this three-hour seminar, you will learn about the most common errors in panoramic radiographs and how to correct them. Based on this information, we will review multiple panoramic radiographs to identify common but unusual conditions or variations of normal anatomy. You will also learn how to diagnose and differentiate soft tissue calcifications frequently appearing in panoramic radiographs.

Learn How To
  • Review the existing dental literature on panoramic technical errors
  • Understand the physics of panoramic radiography as it relates to image errors
  • Identify panoramic errors and suggest modifications
  • Learn diagnostic clues to differentiate soft tissue calcifications seen in panoramic radiographs.

Black, White, Salt and Pepper: Not Your Hair Color

Pathosis of the jaws can be radiopaque, radiolucent, or mixed. In this three-hour seminar, we will use intraoral, panoramic, and cross-sectional (CBCT) images to learn how to differentiate these conditions and arrive at a treatment plan. Early diagnosis of diseases is the key to better outcomes, and it can be easy to overlook early-stage lesions. Therefore, we will focus on small lesions instead of discussing large ones. 

Learn How To
  • Differentiate lesions with similar radiographic features using different types of images
  • Identify which appearance requires immediate treatment, follow-up, or no intervention
  • Understand radiographic features of normal anatomy as they undergo the disease process

Prague to Budapest travel locations


Prague is a romantic medieval city full of history. The compact, walkable city center—spared from war’s destruction and urban renewal—is filled with architectural gems of all styles and eras. From the iconic Charles Bridge or the Vltava River to the Astronomical Clock in the Old Town, the City of a Hundred Spires delights with Old World charm.

BoHo Hotel Prague | Three nights: September 14, 15, 16, 2024

Mere steps separate the BoHo Hotel from the heart of Prague's fascinating city center. Nestled in the Old Town neighborhood's quiet streets, this four-star property melds contemporary design with its surroundings' historic charm. In every corner, you'll experience the striking design of this former Art Deco post office from the early 1900s. You'll find the BoHo Hotel's homage to the city's Eastern European heritage throughout the hotel in the form of Matryoshka dolls and original photography. If you're looking for an extra dose of relaxation, you can reserve a signature spa treatment at the hotel's private spa and wellness area.

If you're looking for a break from the heavier, local European fare, you can step inside the Boho Hotel Restaurant for a healthier take on a wide array of international fares.

Boho Hotel - Prague


Vienna is synonymous with the arts: classical composers, waltz, opera, ballet, and the theatre are all represented, as well as many museums. Ornate palaces surrounded by parks and gardens attest to the many hundreds of years of royal rule, from the Habsburgs to the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Steigenberger Hotel Herrenhof | Four nights: September 17, 18, 19, 20, 2024

You will be hard-pressed to find a more centrally located Viennese hotel. Located minutes from the imperial Hofburg complex, this five-star hotel is surrounded by internationally recognized sites of cultural and historical importance. Brightly colored rooms await you after a day exploring Vienna, and the Spa World Comfort offers a Finnish sauna and massages to further your relaxation.

Dine at the upscale, on-site Béla Béla restaurant. Enjoy Mediterranean-inspired foods with the freshest Austrian ingredients, and eat in elevated comfort before retiring to your room for the evening. In the mood for a nightcap? Be sure to try a cocktail at Wohnzimmer & Bar.

Optional Extension


Surrounded by vineyards and the Little Carpathian mountains, Bratislava is set along the Danube River. The pedestrian-only, 18th-century old town is known for its cobblestone streets, quirky sculptures and lively cafes. Overlooking the old town, the reconstructed Bratislava Castle, a dominant feature of the city for centuries, has been inhabited for thousands of years.


The Danube River winds its way eastward to Hungary and through its shining capital city of Budapest. Most commonly recognized for the glistening reflection of its riverside Parliament building, Budapest is a treasure trove of cultural and historical finds. Traditional, eastern European values combine with westernized culture to create a unique destination that will make you want to savor every moment.

Please note that there will not be any Continuing Education lectures during the extension. All credits will be earned during the main program.

Hotel Moments Budapest | Four nights: September 21, 22, 23, 24, 2024

A vaulted entrance welcomes you into the Hotel Moments Budapest, the former site of Budapest's first movie theater. Set upon UNESCO World Heritage's Andrassy Avenue, you will be greeted by fresco-inspired elegance the moment you enter. Venture on foot to the neighborhood's countless points of interest and return to the property's aromatic sauna for a relaxing way to end the night.

Enjoy direct access to Zenobia, a Lebanese restaurant in the hotel. From chilled appetizers to freshly grilled meats, your palate will appreciate the new flavors you can discover at Zenobia.
