The 2018 DEO Summit: The Emerging Future of Group Dentistry is a premier yearly event for up-and-coming group dental practices. The event empowers budding dental entrepreneurs to discover what the future holds for dentistry and how group practices can start gearing up now for future success.

The Summit is a place where all stakeholders in group dentistry come together each year to network, learn, and grow their dental enterprises. It brings together industry players engaged in managed group practice — from startups to the largest DSOs — to address the fundamental, critical issues that affect their growth and success.

Registrants include nearly 400 dentists, group executives and dental professionals, as well as 38 sponsors dedicated to the group space. Summit attendees consist of small and emerging group practices, mid-level DSOs, suppliers, vendors, and private equity groups.

This year we are featuring 2 special panels led by top experts:

Panel #1: The Future Of Capital Investors And What They Are Looking For… Led By Karan Garg of Houlihan LokeyAs groups move up the ladder of success, they reach a point where they must consider equity financing. A panel led by Karan Garg, a director in Houlihan Lokey, the leader in investment banking in the dental space, along with a CEO of a mid-sized DSO and an Equity Partner. The panel will be addressing those many questions that every growing group needs answered: how to position themselves and qualify for equity financing; what are the benefits, what are the costs of equity financing; and how does equity financing impact the culture and operations of the group?

Panel #2: Profits Fund Your Future: Increasing Profitability in Your Dental Group… Led By Ken Cooper of North American Dental GroupProfits fund your practices’ future. Whether it’s used for acquisition (practices, people or equipment), or to enhance your EBITDA for equity funding, profit is a key component to your lasting success. This panel — geared toward large-group executives and masters of profitability — will answer questions about their models and methods. One key focus: How do you “squeeze more” out of what you have to generate greater profit margins?
