Topics covered at the Data Summit:

  • Performance of dental and veterinary practices (both specialty and general)
  • Successes and failures of initiatives
  • Patient and client demographics including age, geography, distance from practice
  • Market development and opportunities
  • What is a marketplace and why is it better to be in a marketplace
