The ADSO Updates Summit Agenda With Sessions Designed for Every Team Member

The Association of Dental Support Organizations (ADSO) continues to support its members through research, education and advocacy; enabling them to foster innovation, collaboration and a vibrant market where DSO-supported dentists can provide quality oral health care.

One member benefit is the annual Summit. The ADSO will host the 2018 Annual ADSO Summit at the JW Marriott Austin in downtown Austin, Texas. This year’s conference will be held April 18-20.

This year’s agenda is stacked with outstanding speakers that will cover a range of topics designed for every member of the team with breakouts on topics such as leadership, marketing and public relations, human resources and recruitment, advocacy, and growth and development. DSOs and Group Practices of all sizes will benefit from the general sessions, breakout sessions, round table discussions, talk table visits with industry partners, and networking receptions.

Although there will be sessions designed for every member of the team, two program sessions to highlight are:

Leading Change: Supporting and Developing Newly Acquired Practices
Top DSO CEOs Pat Bauer of Heartland Dental, Steve Bilt of Smile Brands, Inc., and Kenneth Cooper of North American Dental Group, will lead a general session on best business practices, collaboration, and learning opportunities.

Strategic Business Planning: The Fundamentals of Internal Processes for DSOs
Lead by Ken Kaufman, CFO of Community Dental Partners, George Maney, CFO and Head of Marketing & Call Center at Jefferson Dental Clinics (JDC) Healthcare Management, LLC, Andy Oreffice, Sr. VP Compliance & Government Relations at Benevis, and Mike Williamson, CCO and Sr. Dir., Compliance & Ethics at Pacific Dental Services.
