Between patient care and the rigors of running a business, independent dental practices have enough on their collective plates, especially coming through a turbulent 2020.

There's a greater need these days for mobility and versatility with information, including with dental continuing education – to have the entire dental team's CE in the palm of your hand and to use a single platform to track the practice's progress toward shared goals.

With the recently updated Spear Online mobile app, dentists can download courses for offline viewing, which makes it easier for them to complete their own clinical CE and have greater understanding of the depth of courses, lessons, webinars, team training resources, Patient Education videos and other materials available on the platform known as the “Gateway to Great Dentistry.”

The app updates provide Spear Online members with efficient mobile access to check on the entire team's progress with assigned courses and clinical topics that are most relevant to the individual practice. Updates are part of Spear's constant engagement with members to improve how the entire practice team engages with their CE.

With the Spear Online mobile app, it's now easier to implement practice-wide training through these enhanced features:

  • Download CE courses and lessons to learn on the go, or whenever Wi-Fi is unavailable, for a richer learning experience that mirrors your desktop learning while traveling.
  • Add enhanced team details and track your practice's progress directly through the app.
  • Rely on a forgot-password update that is now faster and more streamlined.

Being able to watch offline and complete quizzes for CE credit from anywhere gives every role in the dental practice greater comfort with learning. The app automatically tracks your progress and synchs to your account once you are back within Wi-Fi range.

Members can download or update the app in the Apple Store and take advantage of the added flexibility with taking Spear Online on the go.

Enhanced Spear Online Profile to track the dental team's progress

Spear Online members can now highlight specific personal, practice and learning goals, as well as key details about their practices, through an enhanced profile feature.

This information will provide the member's Customer Success Manager with the information they need to provide customized recommendations to help dentists and their teams make the most of their Spear membership.

Members can complete the profile today or contact their CSM with questions for help filling it out, or for any assistance with identifying their team's learning goals.
