Learn how to ensure a successful practice transition


After a 40-year journey in dentistry, how does a seasoned dentist of a booming real-world private practice successfully transition a beloved practice with long time patients and loyal teammates to an early career dentist?

That’s the question the course, Seasons Change, and So Did I: Successful Practice Transitions — ADAPT (3116), will answer on Oct. 13 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at Jasmine A in the Mandalay Bay South Convention Center.

Presented by Mark E. Hyman, D.D.S., adjunct professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Adams School of Dentistry, objectives of the course include learning the steps to integrate the new doctor into the team, enhancing team retention and success; defining steps to introduce new doctors to the patient family, enhancing a smooth transition; and planning to integrate the new doctor into the referral community, ensuring long term success. Attendees can earn two continuing education credits.

Dr. Hyman will be joined by Suzanne M. Ebert, D.M.D., vice president of Dental Practice and Relationship Management for the ADA Business Innovation Group and the ADA advisor for ADA Practice Transition, a service backed by the ADA focused on helping dentists make the process of joining or leaving a practice predictable and successful.

The fee is included with the Smile Pass and Platinum Smile Pass.
