Keynote: How to Build, Maintain and Grow a $10 Million Dollar Dental Practice

Time : 10:00-10:30

Conference Series Dental Congress 2015 International Conference Keynote Speaker Harry Marget  photo
Biography:

Dr Harry Marget graduated from the University of Adelaide dental school in 1972 and at that time he completed a short training program at the dental school on how to finish certain procedures. On December 25 of the same year he moved to Melbourne and took a position working seven days a week at a conservative dental practice in the affluent Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn. There it was required that the dentist perform all procedures including molar endodontics, molar surgery and crown and bridge.
After a two year training program in Endodontics at the University of Melbourne, Dr Marget ventured off on considerable overseas trips to learn from Masters in dental procedures from as far afield as the United Kingdom, the United States, and South America to India, South Africa and Israel.
Between 1974 and 1994, Dr Marget opened no less than three dental practices from scratch and built them up to $3 million dollar business. After 3 to 5 years he sold them off at a considerable profit. In each and every case, careful selection of the type of procedures offered, staffing recruitment, training and business management, were the key elements to the success.
Since that time Dr Marget has operated the one dental practice in the family suburb of East Bentleigh, building it up to comprise of 10 surgeries. Currently with a professional clinical roster of 10 general dentists, 3 dentists specialising in oral surgery and implantology, periodontics and orthodontics respectively, 4 hygienists and oral therapists and a resident anaesthetist. Dr Marget boasts one of the bigger dental practices in Victoria.
With all this success you think Harry would be satisfied, but his plans are to expand to 18 surgeries and he is soon looking to employ more than 20 dentists. It has been Harry’s life passion to help other dentists understand the business of “busyness” in dentistry.

Abstract:

With over 40 years’ experience, Dr Marget imparts his knowledge on how to build a $10 million dollar dental practice in Australia in the current economic environment, without resorting to strange and unusual methods. Today the challenges for dentists are many. Even establishing professionals can feel overwhelmed by the influx of new graduates and overseas trained dentists. Add in the impact of health fund restrictions, dental association regulations and increasing overhead costs. Creating real profit can seem rather difficult.
In his presentation Dr Marget will show that all of these things are in fact not negatives but positives and that all of the above can be turned into real and positive outcomes. Utilising simple and basic home-grown philosophies, your prospective success requires nothing more than careful planning, sensible thinking and a warm heart.

Session Introduction

Geoff Parkes

The Australian College of Dental Education, Australia

Title: Understanding the business of dentistry

Time : 11:15-11:40

Speaker
Biography:

Geoff Parkes is a founder and director of the Australian College of Dental Education. The college was established in 2013 to provide dental graduates and practicing dentists with post-graduate level business education. Students can elect to undertake study towards formal post-graduate qualifications, or else enrol in individual subjects of their choosing. All study is conducted on-line over 15-week semesters, and features high-level interaction for students with highly qualified educators and dental professionals across a variety of disciplines. Geoff’s background includes an MBA from Monash University, and many years of healthcare experience with GE Medical Systems and as Director of Equipment for Henry Schein Halas in Australia. Geoff is also a Director of Dental Advantage Consulting Group, and is committed to helping dentists align the objectives of ethical and profitable dentistry, with optimal patient health outcomes at the forefront. He owns and operates two successful dental practices in Australia, and has had numerous articles published in the dental industry press relating to the business of dentistry.

Abstract:

Dental graduates are typically underprepared for the business of dental practice. Increased supply of dentists and relative lack of opportunity in the private sector mean that traditional mentorship pathways are no longer as frequently available to young dentists and, even so, may not be as appropriate or effective for today’s competitive environment. Young dentists, faced with the challenge of developing their clinical skills “on the job”, in many cases do not learn that successful dentistry can often be as much what happens outside the mouth as inside. Engaging with prospective patients, effective communication, providing a high quality patient or “customer” experience are as important to many of todays’ consumers of dental services as is the clinical outcome. This presentation highlights the need for dentists in the private sector, whether they be new practice owners, prospective owners or employed dentists, to fully understand the business environment in which they and their patients operate, to prepare themselves fully for this, and to implement effective strategies. Using real-life examples, and encompassing areas such as dental practice operation, marketing, human resources management, accounting, health economics and entrepreneurship, this presentation details the specific benefits for dentists of undertaking formal business study following completion of their undergraduate degrees.

Rashad Murad

International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Syria

Title: Factors influencing the results and success rate of intentional replantation procedures

Time : 15:40-16:05

Speaker
Biography:

Dr Rashad Murad currently serves as the international president of ICOI-Syria. He is the Chief Director of Dental Association in Damascus.General Manager and owner of Advanced Dental Care Syria For Treatment and Cosmetic Dentistry Center.

Abstract:

Aim: To address the indications, contraindications, surgical procedures, complications following treatment, factors influencing the results and success rate of intentional re-plantation procedures.
For many years, intentional replantation has been a treatment option for teeth that would be difficult, if not impossible, to treat using traditional root canal therapy. It is a viable alternative in the case of unsuccessful endodontic procedures; however it must be accomplished as quickly as possible. The preservation of cell vitality in the periodontal ligament, the removal of all tissue debris and irritating substances from the root surface, achievement of a good apical seal and reinforcement of the crown structure are critical in ensuring normal function of the reimplanted tooth.

His practice is limited to orthodontics. He spoke at many scientific meetings in Egypt.

Abstract:

Orthodontics is not only fixing braces to patient teeth . we can classify orthodontics to big 5 types of interventions firstly 1-preventive orthodontics which aims to predict the problem and trying to prevent it before it becomes more complicated for example space maintainers which are used to keep spaces of extracted teeth for erupting ones or for aprosthesis. 2-interciptive orthodontics which aims to interrupting orthodontic problem and preventing it\'s complexity for example correction of skeletal calss II with mandibular retrognathism with amyofunctional appliance as twin block or correcting skeletal class III in agrowing patient with maxillary retrusion with face mask also correcting of adevelopping open bite with tongue gaurd appliance which aim to retain soft tissue balance and establishing normal over jet normal over bite .Also utilizing of leeway spaces in decreasing the need for fixed appliance in the future .3- Corrective which means management of malocclusion already after it became complicated 4- camouflage treatment by extracting teeth and trying to improve dental and soft tissue relation with dento alveolar movements for example extracting upper first premolars to retract upper anteriors and upper lip in skeletal class II cases finally is Orthognathic surgery in which acombination of orthodontics and surgery are performed to correct skeletal base malrelation .finally I want to say that you can treat or at least decrease complexity of malocclusion by different means rather than fixing brackets on teeth.

Abstract:

Discolored teeth are seen frequently in the dental office and present a major challenge to dentists. It is essential to recognize the causes in order of establishing appropriate therapy. One of the reasons for tooth discoloration is due to a traumatic injury. This discoloration can vary from pink, yellow or dark gray, depending primarily on the degree of pulp condition and response following injury. The dental pulp may become inflamed and bleed or may mineralize as post traumatic sequelae. Of these conditions depend upon the color change of the affected tooth. To ignore pulpar responses can lead to misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment. Keywords - Discolored teeth, traumatic injury, Dental pulp condition, Bleeding, Misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment.

Abstract:

Problem Statement: Tooth whitening was used for over one hundred and fifty years. The question concerning the whiteness of teeth is a complex one since tooth whiteness will vary from individual to individual, and is also dependent on the age of the individual and culture etc. Tooth whitening following treatment may also be dependent on the type of whitening system used to whiten the teeth. There are a number of side-effects to the process and these include tooth sensitivity and gingival irritation (Dahl & Pallensen 2003, ADA Council on Scientific Affairs 2009). Normally these side effects should resolve after approximately 48 hours although in extreme situations this may last for several months.
Description: Tooth whitening is not a new technique in dentistry. The question concerning the whiteness of teeth is a complex one since tooth whiteness will vary from individual to individual, dependent on the age and culture etc. Tooth whitening following treatment may be dependent on the type of whitening system used to whiten the teeth. There are a number of side-effects to the process and these include tooth sensitivity and gingival irritation. Some individuals may experience no pain or sensitivity following the procedure.
Purpose: To systematically review the available published literature until 31st December 2014 in order to identify all relevant studies for inclusion and to determine whether there was any evidence demonstrating that the application of 10% and 15% carbamide peroxide in tooth whitening procedures resulted in tooth (dentine) sensitivity.

Razan Mohammad Baabdullah

King Abdulaziz University,
Saudi Arabia

Title: The prevalence rate of third molar impaction among Jeddah population

Time : 17:30-17:55

Speaker
Biography:

Razan Mohammad Baabdullah is currently a dental intern at King Abdulaziz University. As a professional licensed and certified speaker and educator, she has delivered numerous keynotes and educational sessions at professional conferences and training events. She has been involved with youth development for over seven years as an administrator, teacher, and director.

Abstract:

Purpose: There is a lack of data about the prevalence rate and the pattern of third molar impaction in Saudi Arabia. The purpose of this study is to determine the prevalence rate and the pattern of third molar impaction if present and its association with other factors like age, gender, local and racial factors.
Methods: The investigators implemented a retrospective study composed of 1866 digital orthopantomogrmas (OPG) of the patients who attended dental clinics in King Abdulaziz University Dental Hospital, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Digital OPGs of 580 patients aged between 18 and 55 years were selected from these records and evaluated for the prevalence rate of third molar impactions and their pattern. Other study variables were grouped into the following categories: age, gender, and nationality. Descriptive and bivariate statistics were computed and the P-value was set at .05.
Results: The sample was composed of 580 patients, 77.1% of them presented with at least one impacted third molar with no significant difference between gender and nationality groups regarding the prevalence rate of impaction but younger people showed higher prevalence rate. There was a statistically significant association between gender and angulation pattern. Of the 914 impactions, there was a predilection for mandibular than maxillary impactions but not statistically significant (Mandibular, 52.8% vs Maxillary, 47.2%; P= 0.085). Vertical impaction was the most frequent (34.1%). The most common level of impaction in the maxilla was level C while level A was the most common in the mandible; 53.6% and 47.6% respectively.
Conclusion: The results of this study suggest that the prevalence rate of third molar impaction in Jeddah population is high and the rate is expected to rise over time. Future studies will focus on the etiology of third molar impaction.
