Empowering Orthodontists in EVERY Area of Their Business Since 2015
"I have been to MKS every year. Learn something new every time!" - J. Braud, Orthodontist
WHAT TO EXPECT?
MKS Forum is celebrating its fifth anniversary in 2019! Thousands of doctors and team members have come to learn from the most successful orthodontists across North America at MKS. Many doctors have never missed an MKS event! The business of orthodontists changes every year and so does MKS. 

MKS started with 230 doctors in Dallas in 2015 and has grown from there. In 2018, over 80 vendors answered questions for hundreds of doctors. These included groups you never see at other dental events, including Ferrari and Morgan Stanley. 

MKS Forum is different. It is focused the BUSINESS aspects of operating a successful, highly profitable orthodontic practice or group of practices. Some of the most successful orthodontists in the country have presented at MKS over the years, showing how they improved their operations, bottom line, and increased ultimate practice value.

IT'S LIKE SIX EVENTS IN ONE
Most conferences spend the weekend tackling one industry topic or issue... meaning you have to keep registering for new events to cover what you didn't learn at the last one.

Not so with MKS. It covers every major issue you're facing today, in a way that lets you begin implementing first thing on Monday when you get back to the office.
Marketing Tactics
Perfect for doctors and practice owners looking for real-world marketing advice that they can take home and implement on Monday.
Practice Changing Technology
Find out from the leaders in the field (and the ones actually using it) which new technology makes sense to be used in your practice today
Trends In Teledentistry
Should you incorporate teledentistry in your practice? Find out what works from doctors who use it daily in their own practice
Wealth Management/Practice Transition
Your finances and exit strategy will impact your life as much or more than treating your patients. Learn strategies to start planning for life after practice.

WHAT TO EXPECT?
CONTENT YOU CAN IMPLEMENT RIGHT AWAY
Doctors share their strategies and tactics for building the most profitable practices in the country. This is the MKS difference; practicing orthodontists presenting real-world results and proven strategies and tactics rather than vendor-sponsored doctors flogging their wares. 

Actual practicing doctors teach: 
  •  The technologies they have chosen and why, as well as the technologies you don't need. 
  • What marketing initiatives worked for them, and, more importantly, which did not.
  •  How they are combating and benefiting from Smile Direct Club and why they use or do not use clear aligners from various vendors. 
INSPIRATION
It’s one thing to want to take your practice to the next level. It’s another to follow through and actually do it.

That’s why we put people on stage who have actually done it. Hear the latest ideas, strategies and insights from practicing orthodontists who are leading the field.

You will leave the MKS Forum feeling inspired to take your practice to the next level, but most importantly, you’ll leave the MKS Forum with a PLAN—a plan to improve your systems, increase new patients, and most importantly grow your practice.
NETWORKING & FUN
With 500+ attendees every year and 50+ vendors, you’ll meet other practice owners who have been in your shoes, who have faced the same problems you have, and who have overcome the same obstacles.

You’ll be among your colleagues with orthodontists, practice owners, and team members from all over the country. Plus, you’ll have the chance to tour the vendor hall and learn what new opportunities and services are available to help your practice even more.

You will leave the MKS Forum having met, networked, and formed partnerships with colleagues and vendors alike.

                  OUR GUARANTEE TO YOU
For its fifth year, MKS Forum GUARANTEES, in writing, that doctors will learn new and actionable tips that they can implement in their practice on Monday to increase profitability and overall practice value. MKS is not about Wires and Pliers. If you want to learn how to straighten teeth, MKS is not your show. There are plenty of other events about wires and pliers. MKS Forum is about the bottom line.  It's about what you can do today to increase your bottom line and future practice value.
