Go for the G.O.L.D. at Hinman

Hinman brings back its G.O.L.D. (Graduates of the Last Decade) program Friday. G.O.L.D. 2.0, the new dentist’s guide to successful practice ownership, is designed for graduates of the last decade (2005 to 2015) and delivers a full-day program that focuses on preparing new dentists for the challenges and pressures of operating a successful, independent dental practice.

“Today, graduating dentists face extraordinary challenges with economic pressures, considerable student debt, increased competition and the lure of corporate dentistry. The G.O.L.D. program offers seven topics that will help new dentists navigate these challenges and prepare them to run a successful dental practice,” said Dr. Jim Roos, general chairman of the Hinman Dental Meeting. “There are things you don’t always learn in school about establishing a dental practice, and we want to ensure that these young dentists are prepared to be entrepreneurs, ready to run their own practice. The daylong program includes a ‘mentoring lunch’ with a Hinman Dental Society member dentist and ends with a networking reception that enables recent graduates to speak with one another, as well as the G.O.L.D. speakers and Hinman Dental Society members.”
