ADSO Summit

The ADSO Summit draws C-level executives and team members from DSOs as well as Industry Partner representatives from more than 150 companies. These Industry Partners specialize in providing the products and services required to help DSOs grow strategically. Editor’s note: When dentists receive good administrative support services, they can focus on patients, expand access to quality dental care and improve the oral health of their communities. In this issue, the Association of Dental Support Organizations (ADSO) reports on this spring’s 2018 Annual Summit.

The ADSO hosted their largest Annual Summit to date with nearly 1,100 attendees at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas, which was held from April 18-20. The Summit featured sessions designed for every member of the team, with breakouts on topics such as leadership, marketing and public relations, human resources and recruitment, advocacy, and growth and development. DSOs and Group Practices of all sizes had an opportunity to benefit from the general sessions, breakout sessions, round table discussions, table-talk visits with industry partners, and networking receptions.

The conference also featured premier industry leaders and renowned speakers, including keynotes Martin Lindstrom, sponsored by Align Technology, and Josh Linkner, sponsored by Patterson Dental. The ADSO Annual Summit is an unparalleled opportunity to learn and interact with all facets of the DSO industry during educational sessions and networking receptions. The event was host to dozens of breakout sessions where ADSO members and industry experts presented and offered an opportunity for discussion. Receptions this year were held at Speakeasy and Stubbs BBQ, featuring live music and local BBQ.
