Re-Ignite Your Practice

ReIgnite Your Practice 

A Preconference Series

Focusing on practice management, finances, and the clinical side of the practice, Re-Ignite Your Practice will prepare dentists and team members to hit the ground running in 2021. We know (and you know) that 2020 was a challenging year, and we also know (and you know) that dental practices rose to the challenge. Now, how do you keep that upward trajectory going and prepare for 2021 to truly be a game-changer for your practice? To answer that question, we have assembled some of the top experts in the industry to give you advice in a “Ted Talk” hour long format, and then your Ignite hosts (Dr. David Rice and Kevin Henry) will provide their own commentary and spin, as well as answer your questions.

Join us for a new and enlightening chapter in the rich history of Yankee Dental Congress as we Re-Ignite Your Practice. #TogetherWeRise

This Preconference Series starts November 18th and continues through Yankee Virtual 2021.  Registration is not open after November 18th.

5 CE Credits Credits will be distributed after the last course of the series (January 30, 2021).

Now how do you take those lessons and build upon them for the future? That’s what we’ll be focusing on in this session.
