Founded by Doug Schulz, DDS, Corporate Lakes Education Center opened for its first CE course in October 2016 with a goal of bringing expert accredited dental continuing education to a new state-of-the-art facility designed to serve dentists and other dental professionals of Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Iowa, and Nebraska.
Equipped with the latest dental technology including surgical suite, 3D imaging, 10 dental operatories, CEREC CAD/CAM, and more, Corporate Lakes Education Center optimizes the learning environment with a large classroom/auditorium with the latest audio-visual technology, a beautiful common area for networking and meals – and most importantly – by bringing high-caliber courses that have previously not been available to dental professionals of the Midwest.
In addition to course offerings, Corporate Lakes Education Center is available for rent to interested and qualified groups such as dental study clubs, local chapters of dental organizations, and dental manufacturers.
