The next destination for the Business of Dentistry event’s Practice Management Conference is Reading on the 27 June and once again it’s a line-up of top industry speakers. The conference is dedicated to developing the skills of practice management teams and will leave you and your team buzzing with ideas.
Kevin Lewis will be kicking off the event with his presentation on team strategies for managing risk. His talk entitled ‘Safer together’ outlines the essential ingredients for ensuring that everyone plays their part in protecting the business, covering many important issues including risk management and patient safety. Kevin is one of the leading experts in this field and also the dental director of Dental Protection. As he will explain, protection from litigation is becoming an increasingly important part of running a successful practice, so his presentation at the conference is a must for any team.
Following Kevin will be Steve Brown, national sales manager for Dental Directory. With years of industry and sales knowledge, he will deliver a short, sharp presentation on how to ensure you are making the most of every available revenue stream.
