Practice Ownership Program

View the above video for a quick preview of what the Practice Ownership Program is all about! 

 

SATURDAY, MARCH 18, 2023

 

All too often, the decision on if and when to own a dental practice becomes an emotional journey rather than a business decision, with massive school debt often obscuring the big picture. This first-of-its-kind session will offer dental students, residents and associates the ability to expand one’s lens to fix their focus on long-term success, with the full disclosure of both the benefits and obstacles of owning a dental practice. With new dentists, established practice owners and dental-specific professionals together in one room, this program is packed with insight and tools to kick off your career.
