Parsons Behle & Latimer’s inaugural DSO Accelerator Seminar was held on Friday, March 30th. It was the first in a semi-annual seminar series dedicated to helping Dental Support Organizations accelerate their success by developing and implementing efficient growth strategies and practical operational solutions.

Our initial seminar was a full day dedicated to helping start-up DSOs establish a solid legal and operational foundation, with a focus on:

• Evaluating DSO Structuring Alternatives
• Implementing Legal Documents with Accounting Procedures
• Obtaining Capital
• Developing an Acquisition Strategy
• Creating a Template Database
• Keeping Corporate Documents Organized and Updated
• Exploring Dentist Retention Options
• Pursuing Trademark Protection
• Getting Ahead of Cybersecurity and HIPAA Risks

In addition to the information provided about these substantive discussion topics, complementary access to a proprietary “legal checkup” software platform developed to organize your corporate records and to help you identify legal and operational needs of your DSO was provided.

Our keynote speaker was Chad Packard, former CEO of Apple Orthondontix in the Dallas metroplex. Chad discussed first-hand lessons he learned both while operating a DSO for approximately 20 years and from his recent DSO sale experience.

Series organizers are attorneys Bryan Elwood and Bruce White.
