“Compete & Thrive in the Age of Corporate Dentistry”

 Today’s dental industry is changing. An increased reliance on PPO’s has resulted in reduced collections for the average practice. In this new reality dentists must see their marketing differently in order to survive as we move into the future. This seminar will focus on how to compete and thrive in this new dental economy by implementing strategic, comprehensive and smart marketing processes into your practice.


Douglas Sligting, CEO of Dental Branding

Douglas’ singular vision is to help dentists thrive in today’s evolving dental industry by focusing on long-term, strategic practice marketing. His company, Dental Branding, is the antidote to status quo dental marketing, which has failed the dental industry. He believes in creating and controlling perceptions to attract a better quantity and quality of patient. He believes in correctly executing efficient and effective marketing systems to ensure the maximum return on investment in a way that is sustainable and predictable. In short, his method is different than how you’re currently marketing your practice, and that’s a good thing!



  • Change the way you think about marketing

  • Shift the incorrect marketing paradigm from that of a “diet pill” short-term approach to a comprehensive, strategic, and long-term approach

  • Compete and grow your practice in today’s dental environment

  • Control perceptions correctly to control the quality and quantity of your patient base

  • Utilize the best tools to accomplish your growth goals

    Dr. Michael E. Abrams founded and directs the Brooklyn Dental Forum, an advanced, continuing education symposium, offered several times a year, to bring the latest in dental technology and innovation to dentists, dental specialists and hygienists in the tri-state area. The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) designates the Brooklyn Dental Forum with PACE status as an approved program provider of continuing education credits. Dentists and allied dental professionals are required to stay abreast of the dental field to maintain membership in the AGD. Taking courses through the Forum should enable practitioners to meet the requirement.

    Courses take place either at Il Fornetto Restaurant at 2902 Emmons Avenue, Brooklyn, N.Y., 11235 or at Dr. Abrams’s office, Brooklyn Periodontics & Implantology, at 6910 Avenue U, Brooklyn, NY 11234-6129.

    Glatt Kosher meals are available upon request in advance for dinner meetings. Please contact Irina Dodeliya at Dr. Abrams’ office (718) 444-3800 ,  id@brooklynperio.com
