April 6, 2016 - Fred Joyal Webinar Explores What Dentists Really Think of Group Practices

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 6, 2016) – Futuredontics® announced that company founder Fred Joyal is hosting a free webinar for dental professionals called “Group Dental Practices: What Dentists Really Think About DSOs.” This special live presentation will examine the surprising findings of a major national survey of dentists’ attitudes towards group dental practices and the impact they are having on the dental profession.

The hour-long webinar will be held on Friday, April 15th, beginning at 11am PST (2 pm EST), and is open to all dental professionals. Everyone who attends the live presentation will receive a complimentary copy of Futuredontics’ new 15-page report, “Group Dental Practices What They Mean to the Future of Dentistry.” After the webinar, Fred will remain available online for a Q&A session.

Based on the findings of Futuredontics’ exclusive survey of 977 dentists (including hundreds of current and former DSO staffers), this all-new presentation provides a unique look at how dentists across the country feel the rapid growth of dental groups is affecting their careers and the industry. Highlights include the top three reasons dentists join group practices, strategies solo practitioners use to compete with DSOs, the factors that cause patients leave solo practices for a group, and more.

“Spend any time on an industry forum and you’ll get the impression that a lot of dentists have a big problem with the rise of group practices,” said Fred Joyal. “Our survey found that the majority of dentists have a more nuanced view of how DSOs are changing the industry. I think anyone who watches the webinar will come away with a fresh appreciation of the whole group practice phenomenon.”

Recognized as the industry’s leading authority on dental practice marketing, Fred Joyal is best known for founding Futuredontics, the parent company of 1-800-DENTIST® — the industry’s premier patient leads program. He is the author of two bestselling books, 2015’s “Becoming Remarkable – Creating a Dental Practice Everyone Talks About,” and “Everything is Marketing: The Ultimate Strategy for Dental Practice Growth,” now in its 5th edition. His popular “Go Ask Fred” blog regularly examines dentistry’s hot-button topics. Named one of the “Top 10 Dental Pros in Social Media,” Fred also hosts a series of dental marketing webinars, podcasts and online videos.
