What’s your reason?

Tired of doing things the same way at your dental practice? If so, it’s time to shake things up. Join Dr. Chris Salierno at Dental Economics’ 2019 Principles of Practice Management conference.

Maybe it’s Because you’re tired of doing things the same way you did them last year. Or because you don’t want to just accept a lower PPO reimbursement as a necessary evil. Or because you want higher gross revenue, a better profit margin, and to work fewer hours—all at the same time...

I could list a lot of reasons why we as dentists need a business boot camp. I’ve heard several of them from attendees of our Principles of Practice Management conference over the past three years. I’ve spoken with new dentists who had just purchased their first practices and had no idea what to do next. On several occasions, I’ve met with burned-out owners whose personal and professional lives had plateaued. I’ve also met with successful dentists who wanted to learn how to expand to second and third locations.

Wherever you are in your career, you’re not alone. Come join us at our fourth Principles of Practice Management conference. You’ll meet leading experts and dentists just like yourself. (On page 18, see photos from 2018’s meeting.) I hope to see you there.
