DentalForumUSA 2021

September 13-14, 2021

Lost Pines Resort, Austin

After months of uncertainty and remote working, the need to connect and learn is more important than ever. DentalForum on September 13-14 at the Lost Pines Resort, Austin brings you that opportunity.

The two days connect DSOs across North America with a wide range of product and solution providers.  The unique format combines talks from industry leaders, hosted roundtable sesions and our signature program of speed meetings based on mutual interest.  

For vendors, manufacturers and DSOs, DentalForum condenses a year's worth of learning into just 2 days. Informal and brilliantly effective, delegates from across the industry come together to build relationships, gain from specialist knowledge, discover the latest tech and influence industry development.


Access to the most innovative retailers and suppliers in the region, showcasing some of the industry’s most innovative products and services.

Hear from thought leaders and best in class practitioners.

Tailor your own program of one-to-one meetings, to ensure that the suppliers sitting opposite you tick all the boxes on your list of business aspirations. 

Our content will encourage constructive dialogue – with presentations that address the most current and pressing issues; their complexities and solutions.

Cut to the chase – our invitation-only policy means you’ll only meet with the decision makers.

Network with your peers during first-class, interactive social events designed to develop and strengthen relationships in our hand-picked, luxury locations.

President, Doctor Demographics


Dr. Jan Jaffer

CEO, TREC Dental


A 360 degree strategy for successful DSOs in 2022 and beyond.

Moderated by John Missey, Dental Monitoring


Using Demographics to Locate your Next Clinic

This year’s Keynote is a fascinating insight for business leaders of all types into how to deploy demographics and psychographics to accelerate growth.

Owner of Doctor Demographics, the largest provider of marketing analysis to healthcare practices, Scott's pioneering work in demographic research has become the industry standard today.  For over 30 years he and his team have helped thousands of businesses select the perfect place to acquire or build their next clinic.

Scott is a writer, lecturer and facilitator, but above all, the consummate communicator, with an MA in Mass Communications. His session will guide delegates to the meaning behind the numbers along with an understanding of the role of psychographic segmentation – the traits that influence consumption habits – and, its application to business strategy.

Are Bonuses Detrimental to Organisations?

One of the challenges of today is how to reward high-performing teams.  Organisations talk about values: people and clients first, and yet they follow a reward system based on numbers. This session shows you an alternative vision: how to align your team with the values of your organisation and how to deliver socially conscious dentistry.

Through a dynamic Q&A session, three industry experts give their top tips for creating and streamlining business and clinical efficiencies covering patient engagement, data analytics and integration of management and clinical functions.


Panellists include: 

Dino Watt, Founder, The Propreneur Path

Ryan Moynihan, CEO, Gaidge

Michelle Shimmin, Owner, Shimmin Consulting

DSO Discussion Group

Transparent Pricing Model: what does it mean and why your organization needs one.

Brad started his career with a small privately owned Orthodontic DSO, later progressing to a large national DSO.  During his decade in the dental industry, he has spent thousands of hours learning the ebbs and flows of dental procurement and where to drive savings.


"This is the finest 'get to know you' event I have ever experienced.  The one on one speed-dating concept gave me a great opportunity to catch up with vendors I rarely get to see, and meet new vendors with products designed specifically for my needs. There wasn’t a single wasted moment during the day, and a lot of fun in the evening."

VP Facilities, Interdent

"Compared to dental tradeshows and exhibitions, DentalForum USA is much more productive. This meeting connected Shofu with the decision-makers at dental groups and helped facilitate several promising business opportunities."
