General session speaker — In 2009, Olivia Wann wrote an article titled, “What's new with HIPAA,” for RDH eVillage that generated 7,896 page views — one of the highest read articles in 2009. Wann will be delivering a similar course at RDH Under One Roof titled, “HIPAA: How You Can Avoid Complaints.” Wann, a consultant who started out as a dental assistant in 1985 and is now completing a doctorate in jurisprudence, wants her audiences to understand the impact of electronic health records on dental practices. In her course, she reviews what the Department of Health and Human Services will require in computerized health records from dental practices in 2014. Her course covers the recent changes initiated by the Stimulus Bill, how to develop and implement a privacy policy, and instruction on using mandated forms.

Transportation — RDH Under One Roof is scheduled to occur during the middle of one of Walt Disney World's peak seasons. The time period between mid–June through Labor Day is a very busy time period for the theme park, and every tourist (particularly the kids) wants to sit down on one of the rides ASAP. A bus service shuttles park visitors from the airport to Disney World for $16 to $20 a person (depending on age), which is ideal for families traveling together. But if you're a hygienist traveling alone to RDH Under One Roof, you may want to budget approximately $60 for a cab fare and avoid waiting in lines. Within Disney World, visitors can take advantage of complimentary shuttle service between the parks and hotel resorts, including Downtown Disney. The host hotels of RDH Under One Roof, the Swan and Dolphin Resort, is just a short walk away from Epcot and the Boardwalk Resort.

Tip of the month — As much as children enjoy the theme parks, a break is nice, even if one spouse spent the day at RDH Under One Roof courses instead of playing and enjoying the Disney magic. The Dolphin Hotel offers Camp Dolphin each night from 5:30 p.m. to midnight. For $10 an hour, the “babysitters” conduct all sorts of fun activities for children, ages four through 12. Reservations are required, though, so you'll want to plan ahead for a relaxing evening with a spouse or dental hygiene colleague.
