Atlanta, GA – November 13, 2014 - Over 5,200 dentists and their team members gathered October 23-25 at Atlanta’s Philips Arena for the first-ever 5x Dental Summit Event hosted by the Scheduling Institute (SI). Teams came from all over the country – 48 states and 5 countries were represented. During the event more than 2,400 Instagram photos were posted under #5XSummit.
Founder & President of SI, Jay Geier, said, “I created this event to be the largest, most exciting event ever held in the history of dentistry. I know that many doctors and their teams never get out of the office together to focus on their vision and engagement in growing the practice. And I know from 25 years of doing what we do that it’s one of the most important things that has to happen in order to significantly grow. So this event was all about getting doctors and their team members to increase their commitment level to the practice and their engagement in what they’re doing.”
The event featured exciting content and speakers. Just a few of the speakers were Bill Rancic (Apprentice winner), Kerri Strug (Olympic Gymnast & Gold medal winner), Walter Bond (Former NBA Player now know as “Mr. Accountability”), Former Navy Seal Commander Rorke Denver, Country music star Trace Adkins (also a Celebrity Apprentice winner) and Don Barden (DDS Financial). There was also a private concert one evening with Trace Adkins. Each day during the event SI awarded the Most Spirited Team of the Day with $1,000 cash. 2,997 of the team members attending participated in helping SI set a Guinness World Record for the most selfies (self photographs) taken simultaneously in one location. During the event the SI held a fundraising campaign through Go Fund Me for the Wounded Warriors Project. 924 attendees and their friends and family contributed more than $124,290 and SI President Jay Geier matched $100,000. Dr. Angel Lopez and his team from Oviedo, Florida were surprised by Geier with a ride home from the event in a private jet.
SI gave away three cars to attendees during the event. Leading up to the event SI’s 5x clients who participate in a program designed to take their practices five times were invited to submit videos telling the story of their journey of success working with the Scheduling Institute. SI encouraged participants to include statistics, accomplishments, and challenges and to have team involvement, be creative and, of course provide entertainment.
The audience voted on the best story and the winners, Dr. Joe Maio and Dr. John Kwant of Apex Dental in Utah left with Jay’s Ferrari California. The Associate Doctors who participate in SI’s Associate Bootcamp, which is designed to increase Associate production, were invited to submit videos sharing their journey as well. The winner from that group, Dr. Rob Carimi went home with a brand new Mercedes. And the third car was given away to Mary Ann Landry, the Marketing Director for Dr. Michael Landry’s practice in Texas.
