The ILAGD presented “The Successful 21st Century Practice” by Dr. Roger Levin in conjunction with the 155th ISDS Annual Session. Dentistry is changing at the fastest pace in history. Some practices are thriving, while others are not. What sets one practice on a path of success while another struggles? The difference stems from the decisions and actions that dentists take in the 21st century to continue to grow and protect their future. Every practice today needs a growth and success plan and it is easier than you think. Dr. Levin showcased comparative studies of practices in similar situations where one practice has double the production and profit of another in the same geographic area. Many dentists today are frustrated because they lack the business background to implement the right changes in the right way for today’s more competitive environment. This seminar cut through the clutter and theory and went right to the heart of what needs to be done and how to do it.
ILAGD/ISDS DinnerMembers of the ILAGD and ISDS met for dinner at a local Italian restaurant in St. Louis after the ILAGD/ISDS Joint CE Program that was held in conjunction with the ISDS Annual Session. It was a wonderful time reconnecting with friends we don’t see often enough. We are looking forward to next year’s 156th ISDS Annual Session in September 25-26, 2020 at the Quad-Cities Waterfront Convention Center.
