Get Insight Into Practice Ownership at The Hinman Dental Meeting

PRACTICE OWNERSHIP PROGRAM

AT THE 2023 HINMAN DENTAL MEETING
SATURDAY, MARCH 18, 2023

All too often, the decision on if and when to own a dental practice becomes an emotional journey rather than a business decision, with massive school debt often obscuring the big picture.

Join us for a day full of education and networking, and enjoy a complimentary two-night hotel stay at the 2023 Hinman Dental Meeting in Atlanta. This first-of-its-kind session will offer dental students, residents and associates the ability to expand one’s lens to fix their focus on long-term success, with the full disclosure of both the benefits and obstacles of owning a dental practice. 

With new dentists, established practice owners and dental-specific professionals together in one room, this program is packed with insight and tools to kick off your career.

Cain Watters & Associates and NDP Partner Charles Loretto shares insight taken from 35 years of experience advising dentists on how to financially reach their goals.

During this lecture, attendees will understand the necessary qualifications needed before starting a new practice or finding an existing partnership opportunity.
