The National Mobile and Teledentistry Conference (NMTC) educational conference is scheduled for March in Dallas, Texas.

The National Mobile and Teledentistry Conference (NMTC), an educational conference geared towards virtual and mobile dental care, announced its 5-year anniversary at our upcoming event on March 1-2, 2024 in Dallas, Texas.

This year’s event represents the future of dentistry and focuses on collaboration with industry stakeholders including the Texas Oral Health Coalition, People of Color in DSO, Speaking Consulting Network and others. Two-days of educational courses will provide introductory and deep-dive education on the implementation, best practices, and protocols for organizations who are currently implementing or looking to implement service offerings beyond the brick-and-mortar.

“What we’ve learned through the pandemic is that patients may never again walk through our practice doors but certainly will let us walk through their doors,” said Sonya Dunbar, cofounder of NMTC. “This is critical as we think about how our dental practices will continue to be successful in the future.”

NMTC brings together stakeholders, management, and decision-makers from general and specialty practices, public health organizations, DSOs, MSOs, independent practices, and technology and product companies.

“Our annual event is unique in that it brings together stakeholders who understand that operational efficiency and same store growth are vital for the future success of dental practices,” said Melissa Turner, cofounder of NMTC. “Because of this, our platform creates space for innovation, partnerships, and conversations that significantly shape the future of the clinical and business sides of dentistry.”

Courses include education on artificial intelligence, remote patient monitoring, how to get started in virtual care, best practices for mobile and portable care, how to add a virtual or mobile arm to
a brick-and-mortar practice, medical-dental integration and prevention-based models of care.

This year, NMTC will again host The Denobi Awards, a world-wide industry awards program honoring unsung heroes in dentistry, on the closing night of the 3-day event. Ten individuals and one dental team will be announced live on stage at the annual red-carpet gala. The gala is open to the public and tickets are on sale now.

Since launch, the community also founded the American Mobile and Teledentistry Alliance (AMTA), a 501c(4) membership association geared towards supporting the dental professionals, dental practices and brands around the world who are utilizing mobile, virtual, and other non-traditional care delivery methods.
