Synergy Study Club
Synergy Study Club Partners With The Seattle Study Club
Seattle Study Club, Inc. is an international network of doctors interested in furthering their knowledge to provide excellent care to each and every patient that comes into their practice. There are over 250 clubs in the network located in the United States, Canada, Australia, Germany, Japan, China and Spain. Each club meets regularly for interactive educational programs, discussion on the latest developments in dentistry and presentations by world-renowned clinical speakers. These meetings provide a forum for each member doctor to discuss and plan cases with the collective knowledge of the entire group.
For the complete 2018-2019 schedule, please see the STUDY CLUB CALENDAR .
More About the Club
We are often asked what makes this organization so special.
For all of us who are part of the network it’s clear, but also difficult to articulate. It’s easy to touch on the typical highlights of what we do, list the tangible tools we provide and talk about the national events, but none of that really gets to the core of why we do this or why the network has grown from Dr. Cohen’s original club to over 250 clubs around the world over the past 20 years.
The Seattle Study Club organization provides all sorts of tangible tools to manage a study club, but that isn’t what makes this particular network so special. We provide the knowledge and support to join our existing “university without walls” as well as create one on your own in your community, but that’s not the only thing that makes us special either.
We work every day to help our members strengthen their practices, enhance relationships with peers and increase impact on the dental community. We generate dozens of new ideas every year to help our members accomplish their goals. Our local clubs offer educational experiences that exceed the highest expectations of excellence. Clinicians within the Seattle Study Club organization are motivated to learn more and achieve a higher level of comprehensive care for their patients. The Seattle Study Club network is a true university without walls, providing so much more than continuing education for dentists—we cultivate knowledge, understanding, collaboration and camaraderie and, together, we continue to impact the way dentistry is practiced.
These intangible benefits elevate the Seattle Study Club network to a level that goes way beyond traditional continuing educational programs in dentistry.

Drs. & Team members
Todd Williams of Four Seasons on Team Building
Todd Williams has over three decades of culture development experience in healthcare, hospitality and countless customer-facing industries.
Williams spent over 20 years developing and implementing the training programs for service delivery for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, one of the most recognized hotel chains in the world; a brand known for its customized, personalized, intuitive experiences. As Four Seasons’ Senior Learning and Development Manager, he was also personally responsible for the culture development and training delivery at each North American Four Seasons opening since 2008. A firm believer in the notion "hospitality" is not an industry, but instead a way of living that puts others first, he’s helped teams in multiple industries across the nation improve their customer and associate relations.
In his role with Centura Health as Vice President, Culture Development, Todd focused on employee engagement, building emotional connections, brand differentiation and more, all centered on patient and provider-centric values and a culture of service. Knowing “excellence” is merely baseline in today’s competitive environment, he’s driven to help healthcare professionals show hospital "guests" what enthusiastic grace, empathetic patience and heartfelt service looks like in action.
Todd has a unique skillset for helping individuals find a passionate connection between their work and personal lives in a way that brings balance and excellence. By helping professionals identify their personal calling, he helps them improve their performance and workplace environment. Teaching others to live purpose-first has become his mission, and he’s shown multiple companies and organizations that putting the "soft stuff" first is the answer to driving all levels of success.
