They came. They saw. They conquered. I've never met such a motivated group of dentists and office managers in my life.

The first Dental Economics conference, called the Principles of Practice Management, was a huge success. Last Friday and Saturday, a practice management think tank assembled just north of Chicago. We heard from Christine Taxin, Tim Twigg, Dr. Erin Elliott, Brian Hufford, Gary Kadi, Dianne Watterson, and Dr. Tom Snyder on just about every major subject regarding being a dentist business owner. We started off with an outstanding leadership presentation by Brigadier General (ret) Rebecca Halstead, and finished with the first-ever live dental podcast, courtesy of Drs. Alan Mead and Jason Lipscomb of The Dental Hacks.

But what really thrilled me was seeing how inspired the attendees were. They had notepads full of ideas to start implementing when they got back to their practices. Between lectures, dentists excitedly swapped stories with each other. Everyone I spoke with said they would come back next year. This was the business boot camp they had always wanted.

We hope to see you at the next DE Principles of Practice Management conference!
