Exclusive Call Center Tour
Among the highlights of this year’s DSO Summit is an industry exclusive: a behind-the-scenes tour of dentistry’s largest in-bound patient call center. This is a rare chance to get a firsthand look at the inner workings of a busy 24/7 contact center that successfully fields over 2.5 million unique patient inquiries every year. The tour includes the opportunity for attendees to listen in live to actual consumer calls while they are being answered, qualified and matched to practices for appointing by highly trained call center agents.
Attendance Is Extremely Limited for a Reason
The 2018 DSO Leadership Summit is completely complimentary. Attendees are only responsible for their airfare and hotel accommodations. Comparable events regularly charge over $900 per person to attend. Attendance is being strictly limited to 150 guests. This is in order to maintain the collegial, small group environment that made past Summits ideal settings for networking and relationship building.
