Inside the Summit

Every year for the last 18 years, hundreds of ambitious dentists and their teams have gathered to learn top strategies in building a dental practice.

The Summit is our biggest event of the year, with top dentists and experts coming from around the country to share the best dental practice innovations and solutions. It's a great opportunity to learn new strategies and systems and connect with the most brilliant minds in dentistry.

This 3-day event is packed with training, networking, and celebration of all the incredible accomplishments throughout the year.

The Big Idea Day

Each year, the Summit kicks off with the Big Idea Day, the most innovative day in dentistry.

Dental Practice Big Idea Contest

Our private clients get on stage and present their best ideas of the year, ideas that have helped them create bigger results in their practices.

Dentists and teams present these ideas to help everyone in the room take their practice to the next level. It's a group of highly-successful dental professionals sharing their very best ideas.

At the end of the day, all attendees vote on their favorite big idea and the winner takes home The Big Idea Trophy and bragging rights for the year.

Partner Big Idea Contest (NEW this year!)

This year, we're also hosting a Big Idea Contest among our trusted partners. These companies will present their new projects and innovations in dentistry to the Summit audience, answer questions, and attendees will vote for their favorites.

awards & Celebration

Awards for Achievement in Dentistry

Each year at the Summit, we recognize our clients who have reached significant milestones in patient care and practice performance.

The work dental professionals do every day for patients doesn’t always get the spotlight it deserves, so we like to take some time to celebrate our teams and their tremendous accomplishments.

At the annual awards gala, we honor achievements in hygiene care, practice management, leadership, and overall excellence in dentistry.

The Summit is a great time to truly celebrate hard work and service in dentistry.
