WORLD CLASS BUSINESS EDUCATION FOR DENTAL PRACTICES

Strong Business Foundations.
Stronger Dental Practices.

The Henry Schein Dental Business Institute (DBI) delivers professional business education for dental practices. This program is ideal for dental practice owners like you, who want to explore different business models, streamline their business, grow, and be more profitable. Any dental practice seeking to learn and strengthen its fundamental business acumen will benefit from this unique curriculum focused on the business of dentistry. Throughout each session, the Dental Business Institute delivers critical business education to allow dentists to succeed in the fast-paced dental market.

 

The Dental Business Institute is a year-long educational program that guides practitioners through the process of applying different business models to their practice vision. Attendees first identify their desired outcome, then design a business model that helps achieve that outcome. The model is tested through simulation to see how different decisions impact financial statements and attainment of business goals.

 

Program attendees can experience the impact of business decisions prior to investing time and resources. As plans are made, each action is tested to determine the impact on cash flow, profitability, and valuation. Based on the simulation results, participants learn where to adjust prior to implementation in the real world.
