Maybe you’re looking to buy charts from a nearby office. Or perhaps you’re still an associate and you’re wondering when you’ll be ready to take the plunge into ownership. Or maybe you’re tired of watching your gross revenue hover around the same number for the past few years. Every dentist has a next move in mind.

Whatever your play is, your biggest enemy is waiting. Doing nothing is expensive. That local practice you’ve had your eye on gets snatched up by someone else. Your active patients slowly erode. We measure our clinical success in millimeters, so it’s no surprise that we can delay and overanalyze our big career decisions. We forget our lofty aspirations as we run back into the operatory to see our next patient. Another year goes by.

Let’s put a stop to the procrastination. DE’s Principles of Practice Management Conference is your business accelerator. We’ll supply you with the skills and inspiration you’ll need to execute your strategic plan. Whether you’re looking to build a single practice or a half dozen, you should be surrounded by your fellow dentist entrepreneurs and mentors.

What’s your next move? Real and sustainable growth rarely happens by accident. Let’s make it happen together.
