Partnerships are on the rise. They are one of the fastest growing practice types throughout the United States. However, creating a successful partnership between two dental professionals isn’t easy – it’s more than just a handshake. Clear expectations and a solid financial plan are the keys to a smooth transition. Establishing effective and inclusive partnerships takes time. It is important to create the right framework from the start and review both the structure and process of the partnership on an ongoing basis.
If you have considered adding an orthodontic partner or even a pediatric dentist to your practice, we invite you to attend a full-day lecture, hosted by Bentson Clark & Copple, which will focus on the key elements of partnerships from a panel of distinguished experts with first-hand experience.
Building a Lifelong Partnership is scheduled for Friday, June 19th from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the O. Henry Hotel, located in the heart of Greensboro, North Carolina. This educational lecture will focus on the business of building a lifelong, successful partnership. From the legal aspects of creating a partnership to the physical building requirements needed for a partnership, our guest speakers will offer their first-hand experience of long-term partnerships with both orthodontists and pediatric dentists. Many topics will be discussed, including the different types of partnerships, considerations in building a partnership and how to locate a partner.
The lecture will close with an open forum, panel discussion, where you may pose questions to the Bentson Clark & Copple team and guest presenters regarding anything partnership-related. Scheduled to present are Chris Bentson; Doug Copple, CVA; Dr. Jeffrey Johnson; Joyce Matlack, RDH, ASID; Dr. Michael F. Nelson; Shannon Patterson, CPR; Dr. Ronald K. Risinger and Daniel Sroka, JD.
