The Future Of Dental Hygiene IV

The Two Day Event That Can Change The Course Of Your Practice And Your Life.

The concept was pretty simple. Let's bring together the thought leaders of advanced prevention and not only hear them speak but let's put the tools in your hands and let you try them out. After 3 sold-out events and numerous testimonials, I can say we are on to something.

This team-focused event will provide you with the right tools and training, to show you why health-centered dentistry is not only the largest emerging market opportunity, but also far more profitable, and optimal for patient care.
