What Is the DEO Fall Summit:
How To Grow Through

Practice Acquisitions and Startups?

You’ve made the decision to grow your DSO/group practice. Now what?
How do you choose the scaling path that is right for you — acquisition or de novos? Why “reinvent the wheel”? Attend the Summit to learn from not only industry experts, but DSO/group-practice leaders who have forged this path before. Discover the many different acquisition/startup strategies for success, and find out how and why to choose the growth plan that is right for your DSO. You’ll walk away with important insights, armed with the necessary tools, techniques and best practices to accelerate the success of your acquisition/startup growth plan.

We’ve invited leading influencers representing the DSO/group-practice space to share their expertise.
These dynamic experts will lead compelling presentations to guide you through what works — and what pitfalls to avoid when acquiring and starting up new locations. Attend The Summit to learn:
-  How large DSOs and group dental practices use startup location strategies
-  How to use KPIs and numbers to evaluate potential locations for acquisition
-  How to use acquisitions and startups to accelerate the top line
-  How to identify your ideal “target acquisition” profile
-  How to effectively integrate a new location into your culture and systems — without losing employees or productivity
-  How to roll dentist equity into new acquisitions and retain new partner dentists
-  How to market new locations: essential tactics to ensure the schedule is full when doors open

Plus, network with the brightest minds in the dental industry at The Summit
A chance to mastermind and share experiences with peers. Registrants include nearly 400 dentists, group executives, and dental professionals, as well as sponsors dedicated to the group space. Summit attendees are from group dental practices, DSOs, suppliers, vendors, and investors.
