Lunch & Learn Programs

Dr. Coppin or Dr. Lane will come to your office during your lunch hour and give an interactive presentation that generally lasts 40-45 minutes. These programs can be tailored to meet your office’s specific time constraints and we can combine different programs based on your office’s interests. Every member of the staff is invited and we will provide lunch and one CE credit for each participant. These programs also give an opportunity for your staff to ask Dr. Coppin or Dr. Lane any questions you may have about our treatment philosophy and the services we provide for you and your patients.
