Improve Practice Performance with Optimal Office Design


By: Kirstie Savinski, Marketing Manager - Dental Events, Henry Schein Dental

What if I told you there was a potential 38% return on investment for dentists who update their offices – through redesign or new construction – after the first full year and an additional 38% the following year, if they do it right?

That is a realistic average ROI for those dentists who worked with renowned office-design expert Dr. Mark Tholen, DDS, MBA, and past CEO of one of the country’s leading dental office design firms. Now you can join Dr. Tholen as he takes you through various design ideas you should consider for enhanced efficiency and productivity. Dr. Tholen, who has been involved with the design and construction of more than 3,000 offices, will present “Inspiring Success: Expand Your Practice Vision”. Over the course of this one-and-a-half-day A-dec and Henry Schein CE conference, participants will:

  • Gain valuable insights into creating an optimal dental practice design
  • Identify essential project team members and the criteria with which to select them
  • Learn about common pitfalls and costly overruns that befall the uninformed
  • Earn 8 CE credits*

Why Attend the Inspiring Success event?

The decision to build or redesign your dental practice is one of the most important and biggest decisions of your career. Don’t get unnerved. Dr. Tholen, who also authored “A Guide to Designing the Elegant Dental or Medical Office...The Largest Marketing Tool of Your Career,” will provide relevant information to help you develop a practice vision that is financially and personally beneficial. Topics range from space planning and operatory flow, to practitioner health. As a special bonus,
Dr. Tholen will provide individual plan consultation, during the session, to those participants who bring copies of their office plans with them!
