This year, we're doing things a little bit different

This conference was originally planned for May of 2020, and we have rescheduled it to October 15-17, 2020.


Typically, the Owner’s Conference is the biggest MGE event of the year, with hundreds of attendees, vendors, guest speakers, etc. But considering current circumstances, holding this event in its usual form would be near impossible. So, rather than rescheduling…again…we decided to do something a little different.


Essentially, this year’s Owner’s Conference has been transformed into a smaller “mastermind” group. You’ll be at an event with other like-minded professionals – the most productive dentists in the United States, working together to share successful actions and creating strategies for how to come out of 2020 ultra-successfully and take advantage of new opportunities.


And this is an “MGE Only” Owner’s Conference. We’re only featuring MGE Speakers – Execs and Clients. Instead of four days, we’ll be doing it in three.


In light of the shellacking we’ve all been through since March, we’re dedicating this Owner’s Conference to the idea of “Regrouping.” Specifically, this conference will be a time for every attendee to regroup, solidify communication lines and plan for how to make the future wildly successful.

The Agenda

Each session will be live streamed in real time for virtual attendees.

Day 1: Thursday, October 15th, 2020

9:30am - 12:00pm

The Secret to Their Success! Case Studies of Five MGE Power Clients

Presenter: Greg Winteregg, DDS, Partner, MGE

Objectives:

  • Discuss the specific key actions taken by MGE client owners/doctors to overcome barriers to practice growth.

  • Highlight specific common denominators in these clients’ situations and in any of their actions that brought about a successful outcome.

  • Demonstrate to attendees how they can implement many of these specific successful actions in their practices.

We’ve all heard the stories, but what exactly did some of the most successful MGE Power Clients DO or CHANGE in their practices to get such fantastic results? In this presentation, Dr. Winteregg will discuss the results of a landmark study of five Power Clients. He’ll not only show you the key actions each took that brought about office growth, he’ll demonstrate the common denominators in each client’s implementation and most importantly – show you how to use this information in your practice to create expansion!

2:00pm - 3:30pm

BIG CASES - NO PROBLEM!

Presenter: Artin Barzgar, DDS & Desabeh Pakpour, DDS, MGE Power Program Graduates

Objectives:

  • Identify and demonstrate the different actions taken when presenting larger treatment plans.

  • Explain each step in the treatment presentation process from diagnosis to patient acceptance, including the specific roles the doctor and each dental team member plays in this process.

  • Provide specific action items that can increase success with larger treatment presentations that attendees can employ when returning to their practice.

You can have the clinical skills, but if you can’t present and close big cases efficiently, you won’t be doing many of them! Uniquely up to the task for this presentation are MGE Power Clients, and husband and wife duo, Drs. Artin Barzgar & Desabeh Pakour, DDS. Between their two practices in the DC area, Drs. Barzgar & Pakpour present and perform all manner of larger treatment plans and collect $3.7 Million a year, with just two part time associates. During this lecture, they’ll give you an in-depth, step-by-step look at the successful actions they employ to present and close larger cases. Find out how to help more of your patients get the treatment they need!

4:00pm - 5:30pm

Building an Ultra-Productive Hygiene Department!

Presenter: Mark Dill, DDS, MGE  Power Client & Ms. Toria Plank, MGE Trained Office Manager

Objectives:

  • Discuss methods to employ with patients that can lead to increased patient retention and compliance in Hygiene.

  • Explain specific Hygiene Department growth strategies.

  • Discuss responsibilities and expectations for the roles that Hygienists and specific dental team members perform to ensure Hygiene Department growth.

A productive, well-organized Hygiene Department is a MUST for sustained practice growth. Done wrong however, it becomes an expensive drain on practice resources! So, the real question is exactly HOW to do it right. In this presentation, Dr. Mark Dill and his Office Manager, Ms. Toria Plank will show you just that! They’ll give you an “insider” look into exact action items, procedures and policies they’ve implemented to create a continuously growing, four Hygienist, $850,000 a year Hygiene Department in Dr. Dill’s practice.

Day 2: Friday, October 16th, 2020

Digital marketing is normally something the average dentist knows nothing about and outsources…. hoping for the best. Unfortunately, this can lead to massive financial waste and poor results. Enter MGE Power Program Graduate, Dr. Arvind Philomin. Determined to understand how to best market his practice, Dr. Philomin discovered how to manage his marketing objectives and vendors to specifically target patients in need to larger treatment plans – e.g. implants, etc. In just five chairs, Dr. Philomin’ s New York practice collects over $400,000 per month, with one full time and two part time associates - and Dr. Philomin himself works just 3 days per week!

More Profit — Less Time, A Study on Efficiency

Presenter: Rushi Trivedi, BE, MS CIS

Objectives:

  • Discuss the keys to recapturing "time-loss" in the practice due to inefficiency.
  • Cover the basics of building a productive organization that grows while allowing the doctor/owner more time off.
  •  Explain how to avoid potential "profitability killers" that may crop up during a growth phase, along with how to maximize profitability regardless of the size of your practice.

MGE Power Client Rushi Trivedi is in a class of his own. Leaving a career on Wall Street in the early 2000s to manage the wife's dental practice, Rushi has taken a $50,000 per month operation and expanded it into two offices that called close to $8,000,000 a year. While there are many remarkable aspects to their smooth-running operation, both Mr. and Dr. Trivedi have the flexibility to come and go from the practice as they choose and take several months off per year. During Mr Trivedi's presentation, he'll show the keys to increasing practice efficiency including how to "buy" yourself more time off, as well as a number of tips on how to improve profitability regardless of the size of your operatin.
