Inspiration: The ADA Big Idea 2018: Discovering Group Practice conference in Las Vegas on Jan. 31, held immediately before the American Academy of Dental Group Practice's annual meeting, was attended by more than 100 people learning how to create, expand and/or refine their own group practices. "A big takeway from the conference was the idea that group practice can take on many forms," said Dr. Ron Riggins, who attended the conference. The ADA has resources on group practices at the Center for Professional Success,, a one-stop website for dentists looking to learn how to find success in their practices. Click on the link at the top of the page that says Practice Management, and at that site there are videos, webinars and other resources about topics such as finance, technology and marketing. The center houses the ADA's Guidelines for Practice Success, which delivers resources needed to achieve practice goals, including modules with information on managing patients, finances, marketing, the dental team and the regulatory environment.
