We’re traveling to the upcoming topsFest meeting. The 2013 topsOrtho Users’ Meeting is being held at the Green Valley Ranch, located just 15 minutes from the Vegas strip. Lectures were created with all topsOrtho users in mind, from beginner to advanced, for doctors as well as administrative and clinical staff. This is the perfect opportunity to gain continuing education credits and mingle with other topsSoftware users.
There will be a wide variety of speakers featured, presenting on a diverse array of topics. This year’s meeting includes many top doctors and consultants including Char Eash, Jackie Shoemaker, Joyce Matlack, Dr. Mark Sanchez (along with many others) and the amazing topsOrtho team. Chris Bentson is also honored to speak at this year’s topsFest event. He is scheduled to present on Friday, February 1st at 9:15am on the topic of Today’s Orthodontic Marketplace.
Chris’ presentation is broken into two portions. Part one will primary discuss the current economic state and market conditions of the orthodontic community. A detailed breakdown of an orthodontic practice expense statement and its benchmarks will be offered to attendees. The data gathered from Bentson Clark & Copple’s 2012 Annual Resident Survey will be featured in order to provide a general understanding of how their choices will affect the future of the profession. Part two of the presentation is focused on the top eight trends in practice growth. Examples will be provided of social media, aligner technology, corporatization of dentistry, fee structure, referral trends, abbreviated treatment times, purchasing a competitor’s practice and starting an orthodontic satellite office.
