It’s not just about what you learn at DentalForum, but rather more about the people you meet. Though the program content is powerful on its own, something magical happens when a small tribe of entrepreneurs come together for two days, who all want to deliver a greater impact in dentistry: shared values, energy, business connections and lifelong friendships.

Testimonial, Luke Moore, Director, Dental Elite

We have worked with Openroom since the inception of their first DentalForum. Initially sceptical about their ability to provide such a volume of influential decision makers from large dental companies, willing to engage in useful conversation, we decided to take the leap and have returned at every opportunity since. The punchy 15-minute meeting slots mean everyone knows there is no time for small talk (this can be done at the bar later), which means that even in just 15 minutes you can normally reach an outcome which would otherwise take months of diary wrangling. It is without doubt one of the most important events in our marketing calendar.

DentalForum UK comes to the Tivoli Marina Vilamoura Resort - a luxury 5 star hotel in a 5 star location. Overlooking Vilamoura Marina on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, the Tivoli Marina offers the best of both worlds: the tranquility of the beach, and the lively atmosphere of Vilamoura town are both within minutes of the hotel.
