“Thank you for another great ride! You folks are the best. Everyone I talked to thoroughly enjoyed the ride and the people they met and everyone agreed it is because of how you two set the tone for friendship.”

—Denny Graber, DDS, McKennan, South Dakota

Heart of the West
Dates: August 22-25, 2018

Clinician: Gordon Christensen


Heart of the West

Location: Colorado Rockies

Ride the unbelievable Million Dollar Highway

Southwestern Colorado is covered with Rocky Mountain Peaks that rise 14,000 feet and more above sea level. This ride gives you the experience of riding, eating, sleeping, smelling, and seeing some of the most beautiful highways in the U.S. in some of the highest mountain peaks of the country. Telluride, Colorado, in a small box canyon surrounded by 14,000-ft peaks, is the true heart of the Rockies in my opinion. The Million Dollar Highway to Durango will take your breath away. This truly is the heart of the West. Add to this an overnight in Moab, Utah, and Arches National Park and you have the frosting on this great ride among the wild flowers of the Rockies during their peak season. Oh, by the way, did we mention great continuing education?

Learning Curves instructor Gordon Christensen

Gordon and Rella Christensen live life completely and enjoy it to the fullest! They enjoy riding their Harley Davidson Heritage Softail in the beautiful mountain country surrounding their Utah home (they ride often) when they are not enjoying the many aspects of dentistry that takes up the majority of their time.

What can be said, by way of introduction, about two living legends in dentistry around the world? As founder, with Rella, of the CRA Foundation, and director of Practical Clinical Courses, Gordon has built a reputation as one of the most recognized and sought after clinicians both nationally and internationally.

As a Learning Curves Guest Clinician, Gordon’s expertise and ability (as you have come to expect) will send you home with meaningful pearls to incorporate into your practice on Monday Morning! Along with the daily sessions after a magnificent day of riding, Gordon and Rella become “bikers” along with the rest of us, sharing their fellowship and fun throughout the day as we ride. Our “Lunch and Learn” experiences have become legendary and you will return to your home with new friends and respected mentors.
