“The Light at the End of the ‘Dark Tunnel’” with Dr. Christopher Lugo
The single practice model of dentistry is becoming less common and many providers are looking to expand their existing practice to incorporate more offices or other specialties. People familiar with this process call it “entering the dark tunnel” and this usually occurs when growing to 4-8 offices. Partnerships, private equity, outside strategic financing, associate hiring, staffing turnover, DSO formation and EBITDA are all new terms in this market environment. My lecture will focus on introducing the concepts of multi-practice ownership involving de novo vs acquisition transitions from the view of a pediatric dentist in the middle of this “dark tunnel.”
“Tools for Everyday Living in Ease” with Dr. Khanh Le
These are unprecedented times. There is a lot of commotion in the world and it is understandable to get caught up in the uncertainty, however, it is also possible to navigate these times with calm and confidence. To do this, we must consider taking good care of ourselves, physically, mentally and emotionally. We are usually very good to our physical body. It’s time to give our mental and emotional health the same consideration.
