4:00pm - 5:00pmScott A. Menaker, DDS & Jonathan R. Martin, CPA - "Planning for the worst: how to protect your practice and its value from the unexpected."

Every practice owner has some concern that an unforeseen catastrophic event could negatively impact the operations and value of their business. As doctors get closer to retirement, the desire to address these concerns increases as most doctors are heavily reliant on the proceeds from the sale of their practice in order to reach their financial goals. The good news is that dentistry is a very low risk industry, as the last 15 years has proven dentistry to be recession proof, pandemic, proof, and inflation proof. The bad news is that an unexpected event such as death or disability can severely impair the value of your largest asset (your practice) or even make it unsellable. Proper planning and structuring can alleviate a lot of those risks. Unfortunately, we see that most doctors fail to plan and instead roll the dice, hoping for the best. In this presentation, we will discuss your options for mitigating these risks and also how you can determine which options make the most sense for you.

Course Objectives:

1. Discuss ways to reduce the risk to practice owners of unexpected and catastrophic events

2. Compare the pros and cons of each of these options

3. Evaluate which alternative may be right for your practice

In part one, participants will be introduced to new concepts in preparation design, anatomic matrix systems, biofilm removal and the use of headed composite. Part two will explore how esthetic, composite-based anterior restorations can be placed with matrices that recreate the natural shapes of teeth. Dr. Solomon uses mixed media such as slides, recorded video and live hands-on examples to offer a one-of-a-kind course.

1. Understand how the trifecta of enhanced magnification, biofilm removal and injection molding of heated composite can result in superior anterior and posterior composite restorations for pediatric and adolescent patients.

2. Achieve confidence in matrix, wedge and separator selection for modern compression-based Class II restorations. See how anatomical anterior matrices can greatly improve your restorative care
3. Learn the art and science of co-curing multi-viscosity composites (surfactant resin plus heated flowable plus heated paste composite)
