(May 7, 2019) – Dental Whale, a firm specializing in dental practice support services, is pleased to invite dentists and their teams to the Dental Whale Business Immersion Summit, held Sept. 26-28, at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Attendees will dive into the business side of dentistry and will emerge with clear paths toward wealth-building and practice improvements.

Expert Advice Shared at Conference Will Guide Dentists and Their Teams in Improving Practice Management

The summit will feature 40 different learning sessions, providing dentists with hundreds of key business points and takeaways. The summit is an ideal time for dentists and their teams to network with other dental professionals from across the country. This includes Dental Whale leaders and their teams of experts, who will host round table discussions on business strategies. Another highlight of the Dental Whale Business Immersion Summit is the four keynote speakers and presentations led by 12 leaders in practice management, considered top experts in the field of practice management.

“This is a valuable, business-focused experience,” said Dr. Scott Leune, co-founder of Dental Whale and a keynote speaker at the summit. “This kind of event has never been done before. We’re bringing in all the giants of dental practice management for one value-packed business summit, where the industry’s biggest names will share an unprecedented amount of insights and guidance to one audience. Never before have all these speakers presented together in one place. It’s a highly efficient way for dental professionals to learn from valuable expert content, since they can pick and choose from a variety of diverse topics and presentations, based on their individual interests and needs.”

It’s like attending the best TED Talks on practice management, all at one conference, every talk has the same core theme: How does a private dentist grow their success in the business side of dentistry?
