bringing business to business
Now in its third year, DentalForum focuses on the rapidly developing group practice side of American dentistry. Leading DSOs, manufacturers and service providers from across the States are brought together for two days of one-to-one meetings, conference sessions and informal networking. By invitation-only, delegates are carefully chosen to ensure that solutions match needs in an environment that focuses on collaboration rather than sales.
- Network with your peers and meet with new and current suppliers.
- A tailored meetings program – so there’s no time wasting.
- Learn from and engage with the leading minds in the industry through our conference.
- We’ll take care of all the details, leaving you to stay ahead of the game and take your business relationships to the next level.
- Collaborate with us to develop your schedule, matching your offering to the DSOs’ priorities.
- Do business face-to-face with the primary decision makers from each DSO.
- Engage with and learn from both the DSOs and other manufacturers.
- Relax and get to know your customers on a personal level whilst we take care of the details.
