Attendee Testimonials

“I learned information that I’ve never heard or read about before this program, each presenter had something that really was eye opening in the world of owning a practice.” – Maxwell Cory

“I’m not usually one to devote my entire Saturday to an academic conference like this, but I would 15/10 recommend it to any student mildly interested in dental entrepreneurship. It was so interesting and helpful, I feel so much more prepared and less intimidated about starting a dental practice in the future!” – Cheyenne Beckelman

“I wish I had this Boot Camp right out of dental school! I think everyone that is 1-2 years out of dental school needs to go to a Boot Camp like this!!! Greatly exceeded my expectations.” – Scott Schmidt
