He has been a consultant for the United States Drug Enforcement Administration and other law enforcement agencies since 1974. Drawing on this unique background, Dr. Crossley has become nationally and internationally recognized as an expert on street drugs and chemical dependency, as well as the clinical pharmacology of dental drugs.

The topics will beHow to ROCK Your Practice Marketing on a Budget,” “Overcoming ‘I’ll Think About It’,” and “The Cancellation Solution.”
