Henry Schein Inc, Melville, NY, will host the second annual Dental Service Organization (DSO) Education Forum at The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, on May 18 to 19, 2018.

The 2-day event offers three educational tracks geared for DSOs and networking opportunities with both DSO leaders and fellow attendees. The event will include a number of keynote speakers, including Stanley M. Bergman, chairman and chief executive officer at Henry Schein.

“Henry Schein’s support of the Forum reflects our desire to educate DSOs about the solutions they can rely on to improve the efficiency of their practice so they can improve the care of patients,” Bergman said.

According to the company, attendees will be placed in one of three educational tracks based on the size and type of their DSO. Each track will cover different topics based on the type of the DSO’s organizational needs. The tracks include:

  • The National DSO Track—for DSOs with 30 or more locations, and a national footprint; topics include “The Globalization of DSOs” and a roundtable with Bergman.
  • The Emerging DSO Track—for organizations with three or more locations; topics include “Maximizing the Value of Your Group or DSO” and “The Future of Practice Management Technology for DSOs.”
  • The DSO Hygiene Track—for DSO hygiene professionals and DSOs looking to enhance production and scalability within their hygiene department; topics include “Transforming Hygienist Procedures for Efficiency” and “Hygienists as Front-Line Educators.”

The Forum will also offer four mainstage presentations. Bergman will lead off with a welcome of attendees at the opening of the event. He will be followed by Jake Meadows, vice president of sales for Henry Schein Special Markets, and Steve Bilt, chief executive officer of Smile Brands. Diana Nyad, a motivational speaker, record-setting athlete, journalist, and author, will deliver the Forum’s closing remarks.
